I think this was the only time they did that flavor. There was a cherry flavor as well, at least in the USA...I don't remember if it was in Canada.
would imagine it was something they only tried once , it seems like there always trying to come up with new flavour combinations for those brands but nothing ever ends up lasting too long before it quickly disappears from store shelves


don't think we've ever had cherry 7 up in Canada , if there were variety stores selling it , they were selling US canned pop , which is common in a lot of the Asian owned independent variety stores here , some will have all kinds of flavours you've never seen before

came across a picture of an aluminum "orange chill " can when searching thru some cans online , you can see how bright the colour was originally on these cans , typical green/white 7up colour but orange really stands out

was right there is more out there , at a different antique mall in southern Ontario and saw an unusual 7 up bottle from Northwestern Ontario . believe it was previously mentioned that there might be a Kenora bottle although no one could find a picture of one . I didn't buy this bottle as its mostly faded on the front but clearly labeled as being from Kenora Ontario

checked my bottle book and is no listing for Seven Up Kenora or does it list any seven up bottler in Kenora but clearly there was one .

Beauty of a bottle . I have one from silver Lake beverage, Kenora Ontario. With the swim suit girl and one with out. Nice bottles for sure . The one I have is 1941 I believe, contains a note inside from the previous owner signed and dated . Figured I'd share

there is a listing in my book for silver lake beverage co , listed 1941-1965 , but might of lasted a bit longer as book stops at 65

Interesting. I wasn't aware of that. Here's a few pictures of the 7oz 7up bottles . Silver Lake beverage

the sip is slowly wording seems to be found on early 7 up swim bottles so it does seem like it could be from early 40's . only seen 1 seven up kenora before ( the one I posted , it was at an antique mall in southern Ontario )

I'm not from anywhere near Kenora and obviously never searched for bottles in that area , northern Ontario does seem to have a lot of marked 7 up bottles though for some reason , is a couple others from other places up north like Thunder Bay , Timmins , Sault ste Marie and North Bay /Sudbury

happened to come across another early 7 up bottle from Toronto Ontario . found it at a new antique store up north of where I live . I traded the owner a couple extra common bottles that I had and got this in return .

obviously missing a lot of the original paint but it is an 8 bubble bottle from the late 30's . not sure where he found it , but city where store was located saw a lot of traffic back in the 30's , had a lot of railways , summer camps/small lakeside resorts and a major tourist attraction of that era . so someone from down south could of brought it there or maybe seven up was being sold there that early ? I don't know

you can see the neck is embossed " 7 up " and so is bottom , can't really read the wording on back but matches the other 7 up 8 bubble bottles I have

Nice!...any ghosting on the back that can be seen for a city? Mine with the same neck embossing is marked Toronto.
its the same marking as other 2 that I have , 7 up Ontario - Toronto

never found any others this early marked as being from anywhere else although I think a couple others may exist like Montreal ?

There's definitely a neck-embossed one from Vancouver, I assume Montreal must have one but I don't remember ever seeing one before.
