    Rare Vancouver BC Pepsi

    Just recently I was able to secure this 12oz green straight side Pepsi bottle! It was posted locally and I had my doubts it was authentic, or at least from around here, but it turned out all good! Initially I thought it was the same label as my Starlite from Saskatoon, but upon closer inspection...

    Have you seen a USA bottle like this?

    @RCO Yes that bottle is related to the one I posted, also these bottles were made by both Dominion glass and Consumers glass.

    Have you seen a USA bottle like this?

    I'm trying to confirm if this style bottle was used in the USA or if it was exclusively a Canadian design, or even used by any other Canadian firm. Thanks for any help.

    Like Diet no deposit no return bottle

    Wikipedia has most of the information as mentioned above, but they fail to mention the 'Calorie Reduced' which was for a time also called 'diet'... they kept it confusing!

    Hires to Canada!

    RCO yes that is the older style with the Hires inside the blue circle used for most of the 1930's, latter the Hires extended outside the blue...I'm not positive the exact year that took place....maybe 1940 or so.

    8 oz Orange Crush bottle from Canada

    These were made for USA market, States like Ohio, Mississippi, and so on. They are less common . Just like many Canadian bottles were made in the USA, some US bottlers contracted Canadian firms to manufacture bottles for them as well. This is why you see the USA patent date, and the USA...

    Canadian Champion Co Ltd art deco bottle

    Yeah I have at least six bottles in the Kelowna style...all western Canada, and I bet I only have a third of them out there.

    Canadian Champion Co Ltd art deco bottle

    So I checked what I had and they are not the same...only some similarities. I know my Kelowna is generic, the Lions does not match...I can't remember if it was a generic though.

    Hires to Canada!

    Thank you sir!.....Hires was my very first sign I ever got!, I picked this up way back around 1990...it's only a 80's item but I liked right when first I saw it! Forgot to post it! :)

    Canadian Champion Co Ltd art deco bottle

    I have a couple bottles similar from western Canada, but not identical. So hard to say if it was a generic design.

    Hires to Canada!

    Yes that ad is an eastern item. I have tried Hires hard root beer a couple of times, it's definitely different!..I think JD would be a better combo than vodka! :) I'm not sure how Hires would do in todays market with Barq's and Mug out front, and A&W is readily available, then we have Orca...

    Hires to Canada!

    Maybe it took Cadbury a while to phase out Hires? I was just reading P&G bought Crush International in 1980 as I mentioned, but never acquired the Canadian assets until 1984...hence the news paper article. So then the name did change to Crush Canada Inc. because they had controlling interest...

    Hires to Canada!

    Cool!.. I have not seen those for ages!... So Proctor & Gamble bought Crush International in 1980 is my understanding but this must have taken a while to complete because the newspaper reported the sale in 1984...I may have missed 1980 articles in my search a couple of years back. It seems the...

    Hires to Canada!

    Thank you!....I've always collected the brand but never really buckled down and got serious about it. You don't see many Hires coolers!

    Hires to Canada!

    Almost forgot, more Hires cans! The first six are the sugar free from the mid 70's through to the mid 80's. The regular cans are missing 3 early variations form the start of the 60's, so it picks up at the fourth generation from about 1965-66 and go to again the mid 1980's.
