Here's a source for regular snake cans plus squirting ketchup and mustard bottles. Get some of each and combine them to make a mustard bottle that first squirts a yellow string of mustard, then when you open it to find out what's wrong you get the snakes from the snake can.

Ive tried using the snakes from a can and they are junk.... Im either looking for a jumbo snake or a already made up spring mustard container.

The snakes from a can are junk because they now come inside a plastic tube instead of a soft fabric tube. It's the same spring inside a junky tube. Solution: sew your own cloth tubes and insert your own spring. Jumbo is a relative term. This may or may not contain the size you are looking for.

I do a drum load with spring snakes. I had a cloth tube made for them and fastened several together.

I'm sure I've seen 20 foot snakes being launched from some kind of firearm on Derek Rutt's site.

Stay well clear of the plastic snakes. A local joke shop here stopped stocking them after a spring in the eye incident.

Spellbinder, Thanks for the encouragement. The reason I posted the question is that I have used one and fired one from such a device in the far past. I didn't think they would end up being a totaly uncommon kids performance item. Either way once I find them I will post it here for everyone. Im very surprised that its not a common item.

If anyone comes across somthing Id love to know.

Robbins still has a mustard jar but it has a small plaastic snake.
Derek Rutt would be your source.
Hank Lee was carrying the Kovari snake that is large like Dereks, but it comes out of a tippy cup. At least the one I bought did. Very well made though. It could have been made by Derek and sold by Kovari.
Hope that helps a bit.
Regards

I have been using Derek's snakes for about two years now, and they hold up REALLY well. He has many options available including different methods of production and different colors of snakes. Very sturdy, very reliable, and the kids bust a gut laughing when the snakes coming flying out. And no, I am not a compensated endorser. I paid full price for all my stuff from Derek like everybody else. Just really love his stuff.....

Wow sounds good I may need a few. Does anyone have any feeling about sewing them together? How well does that work?
