JARS by Dani is the dessert sensation that is quickly gaining notoriety. Each treat in a JAR is a chic way to make dessert all your own. Perfect traveling and gift giving, you can take your JAR(S) anywhere. I had the pleasure of trying three 8oz JARS: Cookie Dough (Fudge Brownie, Chocolate Mousse, Cookie Dough, Chocolate Chips, and Whipped Cream), Original Fudge (Fudge Brownie, Rainbow Sprinkles, Chocolate Mousse, Chocolate Chips, Whipped Cream), and White Chocolate (Vanilla Cake, Rainbow Sprinkles, White Chocolate Chips, and Whipped Cream). These JARS were tons of fun to photograph. For about two days, I took them everywhere with me: the pool, the Village of East Hampton, so photogenic. #TravelswithJARS anyone?
The best part was diving into each JAR like a spunky kindergartener, my spoon taking on an exploration of splashy colors, and the layers of different textures from the moist cake, to the whipped cream, and chocolate chips. My favorite JAR had to have been the cookie dough. For me, the cookie dough pieces were the sensational topper that took the JAR to a whole new level.
Below is an interview with founder and creator, Dani Beckerman, where we talked about creating the perfect JAR, and of course, the Hamptons.
What was your favorite dessert growing up as a child?
Always loved ice cream – I kind of this of my JARS as a kind of ice cream! They have that taste!
How many trials did it take to create your first perfect JAR?
It was definitely a process. I look back at some of my first JARS and actually cringe. It took months to perfect the process in which they are made so that they look the way they look- they have definitely evolved!
What are some events that you worked with recently?
I’ve done some great events recently with Ion Media, Theory, Bloomingdales, NBC, Hillary Clinton, Ralph Lauren, Google, Alice and Olivia, – the list goes on forever!
Have you been out to the Hamptons recently? What are your favorite places to visit?
I really just love to sit by the pool or the beach- but love The Surf Lodge, and the Sloppy Tuna- anywhere casual and fun!
Any plans for expanding your business to other cities or even countries?
Would love to bring it globally! I think it would do amazing in London- but working on conquering America first!
