I love the MacDonald Beverage bottles. I never came across a quart bottle yet.
Here are mine. The one with the maple leaves is a 10oz.

I forgot there was a maple leaf on back on red / white 10 oz bottle .

the bottle I saw online was 300 ml and money back , very similar to the common 10 oz but a newer variation

they operated in North Bay for some time so there seems to be a lot more bottles out there they we realise

The two in the middle! VERY hard to find. They are among the group I feel very lucky to have.

The Hamilton Beverage single serve are tougher bottles to get your hands on. I live an hour from Hamilton and see tons of the quart bottles. Fewer single serve but not the Hamilton Beverages. Same issue with Canadian Beverages out of Hamilton. Hard to find

Well, if you ever do find some, I’d love to hear back.

just dug another Macdonalds North Bay bottle , I live over an hour south of North Bay so I sometimes find the odd one here but not that often . assume they were tossed away cause there wasn't anywhere local to return them for deposit

11 oz clear blue/yellow steinie bottle , found this bottle once before in the exact same dump so now I have 2 . this one a bit nicer although some of the blue paint faded off when I gave it a light cleaning , back is very clean

" made with pure cane sugar and northern Ontario's finest carbonated water , contents 11 fl oz "

the clear steinies aren't rare , I only have the 2 I dug from that dump but have seen others

but there is an amber version which is similar and seems to be a lot more harder to find

every now and then I seem to find a macdonalds north bay bottle but never found an embossed one here always an acl bottle . based out of north bay but seem to have had customers in places much further away .

also the highway to north bay ( 11 ) runs near where I live so might explain why some north bay bottles traveled south thru my area back then
