Am I the only one that was super stoked when the merchants were packing everything, even WET ingredients in (wax?) PAPER?! If its sturdy enough for Julia Child whom surely buys in bulk, why don't we see it more often in markets today? Bulk olives only come in plastic tubs, unless you buy jars and no, they are not the same.

@ollingers Mason Jars rule! Here in Hipster Hell (L.A.) even the rich have Mason Jars-at catered events! I love my mason jars and I have used them to carry foods to family gatherings-potlucks. Sauces, gravy, pints make good single servings, and quarts for 2. If you have a basket, you can even get away with a half-gallon sized for a main pasta dish, salads with dressing, just shake real well.

I think I would use them to store all the bulk organic items I buy at Whole Foods. My Whole Foods in Pasadena, CA doesn't allow you to bring your own containers. I asked. So I do have to use the plastic film bags they provide. Not ideal, I know. Right now I have piles of flimsy bulk bags sitting on one another with thier wire code label functioning as storage. Haven't had any blow-outs yet knock-on-wood. I did at the store, and it was absolutely embarassing-they were very polite about it. It wouldn't have happened if they let me fill my boiled (read sterile) pickle jar.

Does this gadget make other plant milks? One of our family members has a soy allergy.
