If it's the ones I am thinking off they are filled with candy. There are really cute and I am sure we will see some fun things done with them. I did get a couple. Double Bubble, Lemonheads, Red Hots and Smarties. Too stinkin cute.

I found 'em, but they only had green/blue ones, not any other colors. Oh, well, I bought one to play with.

Our Target had the candy ones, as well as little buckets filled with candy. I thought those were really cute to try out!

what are the dimensions? Are they really mini? Or could you fit a small card inside?

I just saw some..I would say they are about 5 inches across and 4 inches tall and 3 inches deep. I am guesstimating, so don't take that as absolute, but that's what I remember.

Super cute. I got some on Monday. I found green/blue and pink/purple. They should match up with some of the SU colors. They also had small tin buckets with candy in them.

I tried to fit a standard card in the lunch tins, but they're a bit too small. And just to clarify for other posters - there are the candy tins (with VERY minimal candy) and the other lunch box tins that are pink/purple and green/blue. My Target had them prominately displayed and there was a TON of other school supply stuff too.

I saw them at my Target about 10 days ago. The ones with candy are super small and have like 9 pieces of candy in them. Don't try to rationalize buying them b/c they have candy.

The larger size is too small for the standard card size. And where I live, they only had a green galore with tempting turquoise color combo!

Yes I saw those too, but the ones I am talking about are a little bigger. They are the same size as the mini lunch tins found in Oriental Trading

Maybe you could use them like the altoids cans with a small popout scrapbook. The kind that is just a long sheet of paper fan folded up inside

Thank you for the link, but I could not find this product here. I did a search of the site for 'tin snack box' and '40334' and there were no hits. What am I doing wrong?

I am guessing that they are not selling on the website.. I will have to take a picture tonight of the ones I got to post in the thread!

They really are a great deal for $1.00
