When I lived in France, a can of soda or food was called a "boite." This translation is not currently accepted.
In France we usually tend to say une boîte (de conserve) mostly for canned food, and not often for drinks.
And we don't use "soda" either but the variety or brand: une canette de thé glacé / de Nestea.
If "boite" is considered incorrect why is it included within the list of clues? This can be very misleading!
We use "boîte" for cans of food and "canettes" for cans of drinks.
