The outside container in the hint photo is a wedding favor tin. That makes the inner container small. Hmmmm


Good point Zelph. Perhaps an air-freshener tin or a condiment tin or a bagel topping tin such as honey, jelly, peanutbutter, cream cheese ;) My mind in combing Kroger as I try to figure out this little mystery. :?

I have worked in hotels in my food service career and have not really seen honey, jelly,or peanut butter in a container with angled sides. It's been a few years since I have worked actively in a hotel or restaurant setting. I want to say a disposable ashtray of some kind, but dont see the butt rests even if they were removed. I am not much of a wedding attendee, so I don't know how big a wedding tin is, but am also assuming they come in multiple sizes. Is this correct?

If the container at the holes punched in them are the measure for "up to an ounce" I am assuming with the angle, the total quantity held is 2 1/2 to 3 oz. For a portion control serving of anything really, that's a lot. Hotels and Restaurants would rather give you more if you ask for them. The only other thing I can think of is a drip/ overflow liner for a candle or something as was mentioned by someone else already.

In my previous post, I asked if it was a mini pie shell tin, but did not hear back. Can I rule that out?

Skids, am I at least on the right track? Food service or butt disposal?

Here I am on a Sunday night trying to figure out what the hell a hotel item has to do with an Ultra-Lite hiking stove. I need a psychiatrist or need to go hiking...I'll let y'all decide. :roll: 8-) :roll:

OK. Now let's put this in perspective, as you can see, short of calling a NASA engineer, I wanted to see exactly what type of containers hold 15 ml.

From left to right:

1/8 cup measure- almost to the top

Hotel size mouthwash(filled to dotted line)

Sake cup to the water line as seen--------I'll probably substitue Sake if I don't figure it out by 100 fold and consume

Ozium Air Sanitizer cap from large can----about half full

WD-40 top- full

Martini glass- to the liquid level line.

Now, I have never seen(I don't think) anything resembling that as far as a container for a food vessel.

Skids, seeing that I will probably fill the Sake cup until there is no more followed by the martini glass until I pass out, How bout' having a little mercy on me before alcohol toxicity takes place! :twisted:

That's a good one.

I would be a fool to say I thought of that, but I did. I ruled it out as I've never seen them with the gold color lining on the inside and/or with an angle.

I guess I haven't earned the Sake or Martini, so I reckon' I'll just drink the other 3 childrens bottles of Wal-Mart soda from the 4 pack of my fuel reservoir that I bought that was left over. :P
