RCO, here is a Jocko can I found while fishing about 25 yrs ago. It was in a bunch of litter under a tree off a logging road near Chapleau in Northern Ontario.
Different design but likely the same company.
My dad used to buy me Jocko when I was a kid. You had to give it a good shake but it was delicious.

likely the same company as the same name " jocko " , your can is likely older than the one I found as it was from a 70's dumping

no idea how common or big of a brand it was back then , I've never heard of it until now

hadn't found many pop cans recent but did recent find these , an area off a road where some dumping had occurred at some point but nothing really that old , mostly late 70's /early 80's era

Schweppes ginger ale , new coke , five alive , dr pepper , 7 up , minute maid , Canada dry cream soda , some sort of ginger beer too rusty to id , and some others which went in the reject pile , well I only cleaned up a couple I though were neat.

went back to one of the locations I had found earlier this year , turns out further back in the woods there was a lot more cans and bottles lying around , weather outside was miserable so I just threw everything in a bag and sorted it out when I got home , over 30 plus cans in total

everything from coca cola , pepsi cocla , 7 up , mountain dew , Schweppes tonic water , Canada dry , fresca , Fanta orange , hires , dominion ( store brand ), orange crush , allens apple juice , cavalier ginger ale ,

a couple of the 7 up's still had a lot of colour , one has a contest on it , where you could win an inglis brand dishwasher for life , sort of an odd contest for a can.

grand prix grape soda is the dominion store brand can , also a blue and yellow can for that brand , for tonic water and club soda

allen apple juice can , pictures shows the French side but that one still had a lot of colour left , never seen it before although stores here still have allen apple juice

somewhat different looking fresca can and the mountain dew has nearly full colour

also mentioned that I found a " cavalier ginger ale " can , unfortuenlty its not in very good condition , is some green showing and you can see outline of the white logo . it seems to be from the early 70's

it appears to be some sort of store brand or independent brand, says it was made by sun pac foods limited Weston ( Toronto ) Ontario

I found the orange can outdoors several years ago and its been in the garage since , it has nearly full colour , gives you a good idea what the ginger ale can would look like

Some nice cans there! Is the Cavelier a flat top? I like the design on those Grand Prix cans, very 1960s. Are those the Dominion brand ones? Never seen them before. Looks like most of these would clean up pretty well with oxalic acid.

The cone top cans I've only come across once or twice, probably 30 years ago at the time and didn't know what to make of them. I did find a Labbats 50, Coke, and Canada Dry in the last couple years that I held on to. Some oxidation/rust, but full of sand and roots and character.
