Snack Jars!

It's been a while since I openly proclaimed my love for canning jars, hasn't it?  In addition to being canning jars, bulk food storage, leftover containers, flower vases, hardware storage, paint jars, laundry soap holders, candle holders and drinking glasses... 

I started using canning jars as little snack containers.  I know this isn't that revolutionary. And this snack isn't even exactly contained inside the jar. But for some reason snacks in jars make me really happy.  I can portion out the stepsons' snacks in a portable container for the car (one that isn't plastic and isn't part of my prized Fiestaware set).  This snack includes 1/2 a Honeycrisp apple, a banana and a gluten free brownie.

I wish I had this snack right now.

I love your canning-jar-as-snack-container idea. Wide-mouth canning jars are among my favourite multi-purpose kitchen items.
