I'm trying to buy diced/sliced pears in extra light syrup. Simple right? No. Nobody sells it in any size larger than what should be for a first grader (the little mini plastic fruit cups in 4 packs for ~$2). I've looked high and low in all the cities in the OKC metro except Costco (which is next on the list). Nobody sells it. I'd be okay with a large chicken broth sized can. I'd be thrilled with a #10 can. I know for a fact they use these in foodservice/Sysco. But you can't buy that for some ridiculous reason. Why is this so hard? Why do I need this exact thing in larger than a single kid's fruit cup you ask? Well, I love pears, hate heavy syrup, and I'm cheap (I turned down $18 jugs of M1EP yesterday...). I would literally eat a full package (4 cups), or maybe two (8 cups) every time I tear into them. I don't want a mini cup, i want a bowl of 'em. That's up to $5 each time. That gets expensive quick. So why are they ONLY sold in mini cups? Are there no pear lovers out there? Why no #10 cans? Why no 'large cans'? Why not even a normal size can? It's ridiculous! Anyone know something I don't? Can I just go rob my local Sysco warehouse of a few cans? They act like it's a controlled sub... well, I don't want to get this thread locked. And before anyone calls me insane, you are all members of a motor oil forum...
