A puzzle!

A puzzle!
But not to me (obviously!), nor to Diane Putnam who guessed what this was on Panoramio a while back!
SOLVED BY SAMI SEROLA -please see below!

Same problem with me. I'm puzzled... Those white spots must mean something. A logo perhaps.

Please give a clue =)

Andy Rodker club has replied to Sami Serola club
Clue.
Just for you!
They can now be found in a lemon colour too.
Before that, the most recent addition was the strawberry coloured one, which was the case when I took this shot back in 2012 or 13.
I suppose you could cheat and ask Diane Putnam but a) that wouldn't be ethical and
b) I doubt she would let the cat out of the bag (how about that for a very strange English idiom!).

Then I guess they are some sort of mint candy boxes?
2 years ago.
Andy Rodker club has replied to Sami Serola club
WELL DONE SAMI!!!!!
I don't have them any more or I would post a pic of one but, yes; called Smints, here in Spain.
I might try and and find a link!
Hmmm; I tried to copy an image from google images - must be copyright issues.

Image search helped me to find it. The "basic" mint flavor is sold also here in Finland.

That was a nice image puzzle! =)

Andy Rodker club has replied to Sami Serola club
How does image search work, given the very few clues I gave?
Pleased you liked my 'puzzle'!! :o)
2 years ago.
Sami Serola club has replied to Andy Rodker club
Oh sorry, I meant there was no need for you to add a picture of 'Smints' here because it was easy to find them once you know what they are called.

But before, while still guessing, it was somewhat a mission impossible. My guess was just a wild guess. When I tried to search for "mint candies", I mostly got just pictures of Tic-tacs. And that was not very helpful.

But then I thought there could be some mint packages where one side has no text at all. Usually there is some text on all sides of any packages.

That's it, Sami! It was the plain sides that got me thinking!

They are small tin containers. I kept these in order to keep paper clips, tacs,
that sort of thing. In the end I realised I had too many so chucked them!

Never heard of Smints before. I suppose the white bits are blutack?
I'd been thinking they might be wheels, hence looking down on container lorries.
But I said 'containers', so my guess was actually right (in the wrong way).
2 years ago.
Andy Rodker club has replied to Isisbridge club
Nor had I until I came to Spain but they are as ubiquitous as Tic-tacs. The white 'dots' are from the white of the Smints lettering on the front of the tins. I actually thought your container lorry park idea was a good one!

Rashid,
cp_u,
Thank you!
This is OK, Rashid, I can move on to the next photo, but with a ys only, I can write a 'thank you' (as I would wish) but then have to go right back to an earlier page and scroll through the pages again to get to the next ys of yours. I wish there were a way of going straight to your next ys without having to spend several minutes wasting time! it is a system fault, nothing to do with you!
Best wishes,
Andy
