I need an empty metal can, approximately 8-12 inches tall and 4-6 inches or so in diameter.  A 2 pound coffee can is too big around.  I went to Sam's, thinking I would buy their chicken stock in the large cans.  I have bought it there for YEARS!  But today, all they had were cases of the smaller cans and 3 packs of the quart boxes. 

I can't think of anything else that comes in a can this size, but if anyone else does, please let me know.  If you have an empty can, that would be even better!

This was the 49.5 oz can I used to buy, but it's no longer available at Sam's or my local grocer's.

Carlene, I think that pineapple juice (maybe del monte?) comes in this size. Eta: I found it, here's a link. Sorry it's not clickable, I don't get the formatting options on my ipad. http://www.delmonte.com/products/detail.aspx?id=178

Perfect!  Thanks so much.  I didn't even think of juices, although I did find a giant can of ravioli at the grocery yesterday, and almost bought it.

At least I can use the pineapple juice to make some pina coladas.  Thou shalt not waste food, right?
