    Felix Beverages-Double AA

    Felix finds on Friday!😍🙀
    This is a first generation Double A from Felix Bottlers Ltd. Vancouver B.C. It's dated 1939....and the name 'Double A' 'AA' was trademarked on 1940-02-16. This product was produced until at least the mid to late 50's. This is the first one I have seen other than a paper label, and there are also the later Double A lemon-lime with a modified version of the cat on the front.

    Wow, I had no idea that one existed! Always surprised when I see a new BC ACL I hadn't previously known about.

    I'll post up the other later Double AA if you have not seen it before? Yes even our local resident collectors have never seen it before!...all these years it's been hiding on the North shore Vancouver in some basic small collection!

    This label belongs to a friend of mine, to date it's the only one we have seen and believe it was only used on the quart and 12oz.
    Felix ran up till 1958 when it was absorbed into Cross & Co. and by 1963 Felix and Lucky Strike had gone into voluntary liquidation...anyways one day I'll spill the whole Felix story from beginning to end.
    So I believe Double A was primarily a lemon soda (as advertised) or lemon-Lime, because they did have their flavor line Part-T-Time, those bottles are cool too!

    This is a Double A from 1954, it also belongs to a friend. Note it is a Lemon-Lime and the cat is modified from the earlier years style.
