Couple Create Lids So You Can Reuse Gü Dessert Pots

If you've never had a Gü dessert before, I feel for you.

The contents of the decadent little pots of pleasure seem to disappear all too quickly, leaving you with just the empty glass ramekin, which you then stash away in a kitchen cupboard, convinced it might come in handy some day.

Invariably though, they just pile up and get in the way, doing nothing other than evidencing how many puds you've been getting through.

But it doesn't have to be like this folks, thanks to a very simple innovation - lids.

Jana Silver and her girlfriend Jess Tadbir have created the first watertight bamboo lids specifically designed to fit the pudding pots.

The lids mean they can be used to store food - or whatever you want for that matter - and they also stack nicely in the cupboard.

Jana, from Hackney, London, told LADbible: "The idea came about two months ago when I wanted to take seasoning to Jess' house.

"She likes my chicken curry and fajitas, so she asked me to pre-mix seasoning for her - she's no Nigella Lawson.

"I didn't have any small Tupperware, so I used a pot and a lot of clingfilm. I got to Jess' house and started venting about how annoying it is that Gü pots don't have lids."

The next thing you know, the couple had set about finding a solution to this problem, and last month, they launched Pudding Pot Lids.

Since then, Jana said the response has been 'fantastic'.

The 27-year-old said: "Originally we were using them for mixed seasoning and to take olives or dips to the park, but we've had some amazing feedback from teachers using them for leftover paints and mums using them to transport or meal prep baby food.

"Some people have remade cheesecakes in them and I've recently started using them as a safe way to shelter my iPhone cable.

"Honestly, the possibilities are endless, the suction is perfect and they're a high-quality sustainable material.

"Thanks to our customers we've found out they also fit Nutella jars and tin cans - which is great for preventing food waste when you don't need the entire tin of chopped tomatoes or baked beans."

Could make for a decent little stocking filler, right?

The lids are priced at £4.99 ($6.87) for two lids. You can find out more and buy them here.
