Do they still make metal coffee cans?

I need metal coffee cans or something very similar (the larger size if possible). I can't find them in the grocery because everything is now plastic. Do you know where I could find something metal that can be sealed well? When we go camping we make homemade ice cream in the cans by rolling them back and forth.....a fantastic family activity. I thought of paint cans, but I'm not sure how well they seal, and I also wonder if they're food safe. I'd rather find something that has had food in it if possible. Thanks for your help!

There are plenty of metal coffee cans still out there. Yuban for one still uses metal cans and so do store brand coffees. I grind my own beans but my DH is always coming home with ground coffee...all in metal cans. sigh

The larger sized food cans could work as well for the ice cream huge cans of beans Corn etc.

I still see some metal cans in the grocery store. Why wouldn't the plastic ones work to make icecream?

I used to make homemade english muffins in 1 # folgers coffee cans ( 1970's ) ; I would love to do this again but I can't find metal coffee cans . It took 3 of them and you cut the bottoms out to push the bread through .
