Finally got a 30oz!

I managed to track down a 30oz KIK!...I do believe the western Canadian ones were only 28oz but still can't confirm that for sure but from what I have seen this seems to be the case.
This one is dated 1959 and has English/French print on the back, I would still like to locate a 28oz with the 'cola' on it.

forgot to mention the estate \ auction sale I bought some bottles at a couple weeks ago , also had a smaller Kik bottle I didn't win .

but its odd the pictures showed the bottle had a cap on it and I wondered if it was an original ? but when I went to pick up the bottles I won , saw it on table and cap was plain gold colour with no writing so glad I didn't bid

Wow it's been over a year since I've had anything to add to my KIK collection!

Well I managed to add the earliest version of this 3rd generation quart to my line up just recently.
I believe this was introduced around 1948, and has the see through 'COLA' and 'Serve Cold' in red...next one I need is the quart with just 'COLA' in solid red. The hunt continues!
Also on a recent trip to Lone Butte B.C. I acquired a palm push...and it's my first ever!. And one last thing to show is this KIK cream soda crown, I don't believe I've ever seen one before...this is not mine. So I wonder how many more flavors were made using the KIK name?

Wow! Really enjoyed reading through this thread. Lots of great information you pulled together Canadacan!

Thought I would post a few of my KIK quart Acls. Although two of them have lost their red paint, I find them still appealing for display. They all have the slogan “There’s Life in Kik”.

Thanks so much for the comment!...and for your contribution :)
I wonder if those Kik bottles had the same problem as 7up's that also lost red paint? This seemed to happen around 1942 or so as it happens to be one of my 7ups with paint loss is dated 1942.

Nice bottles BTW!...which reminds me I may have something new to share that I forgot about!

Cheers!

So I pretty much forgot to post about these two Kik cans and I finally got my own Cream soda crown! (pic shows black but its dark blue)...still missing regular kik ones though.
The can on the left is a flat top from 1960-65 and the other is a mid 70's maybe a bit later, that shows oz/ml and has a UPC code.
