Nibbles: Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk

Am I the only person who cannot successfully open a can of sweetened condensed milk with a handheld can opener? I use this ingredient for many dessert recipes, and I needed it for a cheesecake I made recently. After three different can openers failed, I used a magnetic church key and more profanity than seemed necessary. I finally got most of the silky liquid into a mixer bowl. I washed the counter of the sticky stuff that didn’t make it into the bowl, and put the sticky church key into the sink. Later that day, I did the dishes and turned on the garbage disposal. Guess what was in the disposal? The disposal still works, but sounds like an International Harvester industrial dozer. I drove to the supermarket for a few more cans of sweetened condensed milk and found that Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk uses a key-ring type of can. Guess what brand I am recommending?
