Those old contests were sure a great thrill as a kid...
I went back to see if there was more posted to that paper and ended up finding 12 more , some are as early as the late 40's , others are 50's or 60's era , most are marked as being from Orillia Kist Beverages , I'd assume these same ads were placed in other newspapers as well in places that sold Kist

found another Kist add , this one from 1938 , was in the Timmins paper , seems to advertise the introduction of Kist into that area ,

mentions a 12 oz bottle ? would it of been the embossed one at that time ? and 6 different flavours

I don’t know that there was a 12 oz embossed. There was the 6 and 7 oz ones.
I haven’t heard of a 12 oz acl either. There is the 11oz.

not sure either its possible the local bottler was using something different , maybe not even an official kist bottle ?

I don't think there is a 12 oz embossed bottle , the larger one is 7 oz

Maybe a paper label on a generic label...

had also came across this Kist add for another contest , didn't come up in search results cause it has no bottler name on it .

its from 1951 and mentions prises such as a bicycle , radio , merchandise certificates and flying saucers
