MYSTERY SOLVED!! GG item with a Pasta Twist?

Ok so seriously... I've been searching all over to find out information on this item I recently aquired. It says Franco American Sonic the Hedgehog Sales Kit on both the front and back of the Deluxe Carry-All box. They are stickers just put on the box. Inside there is a standard GG carry-all but it has the Frano-American brand name stitched into the front. On the inside it's obvious that it was custom made and unfortunatley I'm missing a piece or two. There are 3 custom pockets. One is for the Sonic post it notes which are intact and unopened. Second is for the Sonic Handheld game Amazing Sonic also intact. The third and largest compartment is empty and I desperately want to know what I'm missing? Also I can tell that at one point in time there was an overlay glued to the foam that is now missing as there are indents and traces of glue all around the top of the foam? Would love to see a picture or if anyone has any information. I originally thought this might have been from the Franco-American Sonic Pasta Scratch & Screamstakes as one of the prizes or something but I doubt it would say "Sales Kit" if it was????? HELP!

Someone suggested that the missing item could potentially be a can of the pasta? It would be about the right size...

WOOT WOOT! Just bought another one, after 15 years of game gear collecting and never seeing one of these I find two within a month. The new one had stuff mine was missing and this one was missing some stuff I had so combined I have a perfect minty set missing the can of pasta. Anyone have one?

Confirmed to be a salesman's sample kit advertising the pasta. So cool!

Would a 10 year old tin of baked beans suffice?

Nice odd find. Could you take more pictures (or even better, scan!) or the set and detailing its individual parts?
