So do you buy your beans in a tin or a can? Is it a North/South thing?

An interesting (ok that may be questionable) debate started in idle chit chat about tins and cans...so it got me thinking whether beans are in tins or cans depending upon where you live...let's test the theory...

Come on people!! Can of Coke isUSA lingo, which we have embraced! Remember, most cansfor beer and beverage are aluminum and other foodproduct metalcontainershave a small amount of tin.It was always a tin of beans, or anything in a metal container. I lived as an evacuee, in many places in England, both north and south and it was always called a tin.We are becoming bilingual. Blame Mr. Webster!!As a useless bit of information, millions of Dollars were saved by making the top of beer and beverage cans smaller, consequently making the lids smaller!!
