    Documenting the 10oz diet 7up from Canada

    I have Included the 'Like' because it was the predecessor to diet 7up and was introduced in 1963,...by 1969 is was discontinued because of a ban on cyclamate and came back in 1970 as Diet 7up. In 1973 it was renamed Sugar free and then back to Diet in 1979.....I'm not certain that last bit of information is true as it is from Wik... from what I know about other brands they ran diet= (sugar free) and calorie reduced= (contains sugar) at the same time.The thing is both products are ultimately referred to as Diet 7up
    I think I have a good representation of the known bottles but you never know what might show up. I have included the years from the bottles date codes in the list and indicate the type of label.

    Like- 1966- ACL
    7up- 1971- ACL
    7up- 1973- ACL
    7up- 1973- ACL
    7up- 1975- ACL- sugar free
    7up- 1974- paper
    7up- 1978- paper- Improved taste
    7up- 1986- paper
    7up- 1988- paper
    7up- 1986- ACL

    one diet 7 up item I do have is an old can , its been sitting in my junk pile for a while and I can't remember where I found it , its very bad shape but clearly for diet 7 up , I had been meaning to throw it out actually but hadn't seen one before so didn't know what to do with it

    Hey no problem iggy!...love to share
    The Like cans are very scarce!...maybe your a closet can collector and don't have the Heart to throw it out!... Lol.
    I'm probably one of the very few that collect both bottles and cans, I have here in my collection pretty much all the corresponding cans!... I will post some photos.

    You have the bottle but do you have the can!?...

    I don't really collect cans , just come across them a lot when I'm looking for bottles and some I find interesting enough to take home and keep if there interesting to me or pop brands I'm interested in .

    is there a " diet like " green no deposit no return bottle ? found a shard today in a dump and that appears to be what its from but not sure as only parts of it could be found

    I'm pretty sure that's what it was , haven't seen any other green no deposits with words Like on them , too bad it was broken and I couldn't even find all the pieces

    Time will tell, but I am a believer and think it will show up somewhere!...speaking of showing up there is a bottle that comes after the Like, I don't have yet, with a white 'Like' on top of a colored 'Like'....the Canadian equivalent in a can dose exist because my friend found one and it is now documented, it is the white/pink combo, and I'm surprised that a can has shown up before the bottle!. My 'Like' bottle is dated 1966 which is the time the new style ACL shows up. Pictured are USA 8oz bottles but they also came in 10oz, there was 4 colors/Years.

    I have been searching high and low for these bottles but no luck yet...I am confident the Canadian ones exist!

    Blue= 1966
    Yellow=1967
    Pink= 1968
    White= 1969...not pictured

    An NDNR Like bottle definitely exists, in fact at least two do - both embossed and ACL: http://www.angelfire.com/nc3/throwaway/LIKE.html Mind you, those bottles are American, so I can't say for certain whether or not a Canadian version exists.

    I'm not so convinced on the white and pink/blue/yellow one existing in Canada though, it seems odd that no examples could be found of such a major brand. I've never heard of the bottle until now. I don't know why they would use the cans and not the bottles though, so anything's possible. It's a really difficult brand to research with a name like that.
