    I remember them from my elementary school days. Weren't they the original snack packs? They are in plastic containers now.

      Sams Clubs sells pudding in the large cans-probably 1 gallon size.
      I haven't seen any small cans lately. Just the little plastic containers with foil seals.

        If those were the original snack packs what did they do to the recipe? The stuff I had in the cans was far better than the stuff in the cups..:(

        Thanks!! :)

            It was Hunt's. I guess there was a concern about little kids cutting themselves on the can lid...

              The more I think about it, I think DelMonte might have also made one.

              I used to lick the inside of those cans all the time. Never had a problem, but then again I knew I was doing something a tad risky.

                Our WalMart has generic brand puddings in it's deli section. Either they scoop like they do with slaw etc or you can get the pre-done containers that look like the cottage cheese cups.
                The Tapioca isn't too bad with a little Bourbon sauce added.

                  It is funny that you brought this up. My father was raised during the depression and has a really bad habit of hording food in the basement and then forgetting about it. Just recently my sister and I found some Hunt's pudding cans from the 80's...right next to some Stroh's with the old-timey pull off tabs.

                    I remember the DelMonte puddings, I always got them in my school lunch. There were fruit "cans" also.

                      man those little delmonte chocolate pudding cans bring back good memories lol....i think ive been trying to find that same taste for most of my adult life but nothing compares...they just dont make pudding like they used to lol....i think maybe one of the things that made it taste better was being in a can instead of plastic...the closest thing ive been able to find to it is hunts chocolate fudge but seems like all they make in that is the chocolate fudge swirled with thier milk chocolate brand...it has a layer of fudge on top then the milk chocolate then a layer of fudge on the bottom the fudge is alot darker...and its pretty similar to the old school taste but the middle part messes it up a lil lol.....sometimes i wonder if it just tasted that good cuz i was a kid lol

                        God I used to LOVE those pudding cans. You're right... the plastic ones aren't a patch on the actual cans. And don't tempt me by letting me know I could buy a gallon can. I'm reasonably sure I could probably eat that whole thing quite happily in front of the TV!
