    can of yogurt


    Your son's becoming a big eater. He just finished two cans of yogurt in one sitting.

    Do you call the above a can​ of yogurt?

    Not for me. A carton is usually square or rectangular and made of cardboard, sometimes with a foil lining. Tetrapaks are the most common cartons.
