This question already has an answer here:

What is the name for the tiny clear takeaway/to-go cups with snap-on lids they give you at a restaurant for your entree's sauces? The waitress told me like 10 times but I can't remember the next day. I believe it would be a French derivation. They are also used for samples at the grocery store. One word.

empty container container with mustard

    Ew, salsa does not go in the same containers as half and half. Half & half containers have a foil lid and are not resealable. Thecontainers OP is asking about are unsuitable for liquids since the lid is not watertight (and the lid can be taken off and put back on again). – Laurel Mar 25 '18 at 15:42
  • The word you're looking for may be ramekin (it's the only word I can think of for anything similar that's French). – Peter Shor Mar 25 '18 at 16:29
