Heh. Put your glasses on. :mrgreen:

It pointed to this sentence at the bottom of my post:
*I have a 'almost, sort-of' winner from the responses. I'll abide until Thanksgiving waiting for a more specific answer and then the award ceremony!
It was really small font and a light green to boot. I had to squint to read it myself! :D

Ridgerunner!!!

He came close enough with this 'shotgun guess'
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.
The mystery tin is a Dickinson's single serving grape jelly container. It looks like this in it's original state:

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.
You forgot tea light tins. :P
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

Whoa, Whoa , Whoa,

WHAT HAPPENED TO IT BEING TEA LIGHT TINS?
