It's delicious!  It was an anniversary surprise for my husband--we had a gourmet popcorn buffet at our wedding for wedding favors, and the chocolate drizzled one was one of the biggest hits and our favorite of the five flavors we had.  I ordered from the same Etsy vendor that we went with them and she included a little happy anniversary card, it was so sweet!

Haha yeah, I haven't done anything yet with the jar, I need to figure out where it's gonna go, and which rocks to use and what's going in it, etc.  Long shifts plus long commute plus rotating shifts doesn't leave much energy for anything else right now, phew!  I'll get it squared away soon enough.

 

I realized I maybe should've taken a picture with Violet's mealworms as those are definitely her favorite condiment. :lol:

What about a large glass beer mug?  Not sure if you're a beer girl but I haven't seen a beer mug pico reef yet.

Nah I'm a rum girl. I was actually trying to figure out how I would go about slicing up my Kraken jug. But I think I would also like it to be able to be sealed and more than a gallon. However I can also fabricate a lid or steal one and ghetto rig it to fit.

 

I also thought about stealing an old wine jug from my aunt... but she said if I cut the glass she'd smack me lol

 

I think what I will end up doing is honestly a bubble vase or another cookie jar. All the square/rectangle vases I see aren't good sizes. Thought about science related stuff... didn't like the options I can buy online. Thought about a coffee pot... meh.

I tried to brainstorm gun stuff (your avatar) and glass....but got nothing. 

 

Then, you mentioned medical.  Would this be up your ally?

Yea I'm not a gun fanatic. I just like the anime. I can shoot. And i do have my concealed. But it's more due to the area I live in that anything else. I rarely carry.

 

I did think about med jars. But they aren't very large. Which was limiting my plans I had. But still on the table.

 

I wanted to use a pyrex flask... but I can't buy them large enough. And if I borrowed one from work.. there are a lot of questionable things that have been in those... so I shut that idea down.

 

The search continues. I wouldn't mind trying for a self-contained system.
