The Peanut Butter Jar Has Been Perfected

Peanut butter, Nutella, salsa, you name it — if it’s a condiment and moderately delicious, there’s a good chance you’ll be lapping it up out of a jar. Still, reliable and resealable though they may be, there’s also a dark side to our favourite container — how to get the last bits of goodness out while keeping your hands clean in the process.

Fortunately, Jar-with-a-Twist wants to solve your sticky little problem with a patented, twistable jar that (supposedly) makes every spoonful feel just like the first.

As the above video shows, simply grab hold of the bottom, twist and watch as the jar’s contents get pushed straight up to where they belong — closer to your mouth. It’s the same general concept as a Push Pop except, you know, with peanut butter. Problem solved.

While it may still be a ways off before we start seeing our favourite brands in these containers, it would certainly be an improvement on the current standard jar model. Not only does it majorly decrease precious spoon to peanut butter time, but according to its creators, the jar also manages to keep its contents fresher. Less space between the condiment and the lid mean less exposure to air, so it’s practical in more ways than one.

But perhaps most impressively, they even managed to keep production costs comparable lto the average peanut butter jar — convenience at no extra cost. Unfortunately, until Jar-with-a-Twist hits the shelves, normal jars will forever be just that much more disappointing. [Reddit via Foodbeast]
