The first reason is the price. They are priced at $3.99 a piece making them a pretty costly dessert that really is not even big enough to share, although you could probably make it a small dessert for two. Yeah, it is a somewhat fancy dessert, but seriously cannot get over paying the almost as much for a dessert to enjoy at home as a dessert at a restaurant.
What really gets me, though, is the packaging. Now at first the concept of a mason jar for packaging was somewhat appealing, as it could be reused later. However, the lid is just a piece of plastic making it not really recloseable more than a few times. I guess it could be used for crafts or something, but would have been nicer if it came with the regular metal lids to be able to reuse for food storage.
Bottom line, though, is it seems it increases the price to be packaged this way and then it is just more wasteful, especially considering we don't even have curbside glass recycling.
