I finally nailed down a Canadian Mission Charge ER...absolute beauty in a 6.5 oz size, dated 1940 from Dominion glass co. This product was designed to compete with 7up.
The bottle hails from Crows Nest Bottling Works, Blairmore, Alberta

I don't know how long the product was on the market. I suspect it was up to individual bottlers to decide if they wanted to offer it, but being a national product I would think these bottles must be around back east.

Do they have the Charge Up in Canada? This one's from Kiel, WI.

Nice find! I've never seen one of these in person either, I know I've seen them on here but I suspect it was from you posting them earlier.

Missed the original post in the summer. Nice bottle!. This bottler opened in Aug 1938 and, based on their ads, looks like they took on the Mission line in either 1940 or 41. A 1940 date on the bottle helps clarify that a bit. Here's a July 4, 1941 ad for Charger
