Jars by Jodi
I’ve got a major sweet tooth… there is no lie or shame in me saying that. So when I was originally introduced to Jars by Jodi a few years ago it was a match made in sweet-tooth heaven!
Jars by Jodi was originally created by none other than Jodi herself, when her husband and she were newly married and on a limited budget. They wanted to provide quality Christmas gifts to their extended family without breaking the bank. With the help of the trusty friend ‘Google’, Jodi searched for “quality gifts on a budget” and mason jar mixes popped up. They were a hit! A few years of growth later (…and a couple of kids later…) Jodi now has her mason jar cookie mixes available for purchase at various markets each year, in 5 local retail stores year-round, as well as for local pickup at her home in Pitt Meadows.
What are Jars by Jodi?
Jars by Jodi is a small business, located in Pitt Meadows, that sells all the baking ingredients for cookies or desserts, all layered in a mason jar.
Each holiday season Jodi comes out with your traditional Christmas mixes including Gingersnap, Christmas M&M’s and Christmas Mini Egg along with a handful of others. This year Ry and I opted to go with the Snickerdoodles and Christmas Mini Eggs. Well, let’s just say after the cookies were made I think they last less than 24 hours… which resulted in me eating vegetables and salad all the next day. Balance right?
Fun for the whole family
What Jodi has done by creating Jars by Jodi is allowing families and individuals not to stress about the mix and mess of making a batch of cookies. All you need is a bowl, spoon and a few other ingredients like milk, eggs, butter, vanilla you name it. Clean up is done in a matter of minutes! And most people already have those few items laying around their house. This has allowed families to max a batch of their favourite cookies in less time and enjoy the tasty benefits.
Having a four-year-old requires A LOT of patience and some days well it’s not there. So having something like this allows us to have some fun in the kitchen and lets him get messy so to speak and then watch what he’s created come to life! And let’s face it he’s the one whos going to be eating more of these anyways.
If you’re looking for something to do on a rainy afternoon, looking for a yummy treat when having guests over or looking for a unique and delicious gift look no further then Jars by Jodi!
