Tupperware Pitchers
Hi everybody, this is so very uber-random that I think I deserve some kind of merit badge, but...

During my childhood and, really, up until I moved away from home a few years ago we had these old pitchers that we used for iced tea. I loved them. I still love them. Other pitchers I find are too small or weirdly shaped or the lid doesn't fit right. I am on a mission to find them before spring and I switch back to making and drinking iced tea again.

What I know:
  • I know they were Tupperware, but that part isn't a deal breaker.
  • I know they're round
  • I know they're a hard plastic, almost rubbery, and not see-through
  • I know the ones we had are ugly seventies colors, but I'm not a stickler about that.
  • I know the lids are white, had a handle inset on the top and there were three options you could twist to (slotted, open, closed)
  • I know they hold half a gallon each
Anyone seen anything like this anywhere online or in a megamart?

This is Rubbermaid, but it's what sounds most like what you're talking about. I have the one like that, but it has the mixer part in it. I use it for orange juice and kool-aid and I love it! (This coming from a former Tupperware salesperson and addict...SHHH!) Pampered Chef makes a more expensive version, but I'm cheap

Oh yeah, Tupperware is not sold in Target and hasn't been for a few years. They do still have mall kiosks in some places, but the Target deal was just silly.
