Although these sweet little carriers were designed with protein powders and healthy snacks in mind, leave it to our tribe to find an—ahem—“alternative” use. Mixed-drink aficionados loved these stackable vessels for all the accoutrements that make specialty refreshments even more delightful: olives and vermouth (martini), triple sec (margarita), and cherries (almost anything). One pack comes with four containers of varying sizes, each locks on top of the other, and a convenient carrying handle lets you clip it anywhere with a biner. Made of Eastman Tritan plastic, these jars don’t hold odor or taste, so a rinse after carrying olives or cherries won’t leave you with an odd flavor.
