In the past, a few products — like Borden cheese — made it so their glass jars could be reused later as party or hostess glasses. Since people collected them, it was a smart use of double-duty packaging.

See here some of the glassware available — along with some brown clay crocks and small Pyrex bowls they also had available in the past.
