The Dainty can of rice is a Canadian icon! The humble, unique and recyclable Dainty can of rice has accompanied Canadians to campsites and family dinner tables for over 70 years. Each can simply contains cooked rice, nothing more, nothing less - all you need to do is heat it up and season. Inside the box, alongside the can, you will find a pouch of seasoning to flavour your cooked rice. We offer 11 different flavours, and every now and then a new flavour twist. In our era of ticking clocks and crazy schedules – stop time, even if just for a moment and share a can, a story, a giggle, a memory. Tell us your Dainty can story?
