Well I've known for some time there are green USA SunCrest bottles out there...and those you rarley ever see! So when the oppotunity came my way to aquire this Canadian green I jumped on it!

Also pictured is my current line up of Canadian SunCrest bottles, the earliest ones 11 and 7oz have no checkered pattern on them...most are realativley easy to obtain with the exception of the 16oz that I acquired a couple of years ago, and the 26oz.. which I still have not had the chance to get one.
Oh I almost forgot, there is a green 30oz Canadian with one of the late label styles, I have no photo of it right now though.

Great bottle. The red label on a green bottle would make it standout in any lineup.

Wow, I had no idea those existed! Any idea what their purpose was? Did they have a different flavour?

By the way, do any of your Sun Crests have local bottlers' names on the back? I've got a 7oz from Bell Bottling in Winnipeg, never seen any others.

I'm not sure if I've ever seen a green suncrest with a red label before , definitely unusual


found a suncrest bottle a couple years ago on a woodlot not far from where I live , its label is a little faded from being outdoors since the 60's I'd assume but it says " NUGRAPE Toronto Limited , Toronto Canada " on the back not sure if it was common to mark them or not

I don't know why they went to a green with red label, possibly intended for lemon-lime or ginger ale flavor? BTW...
I've only seen one other 10oz and that's from the fellow I got mine from, no city on this one.

Other ones with city mark are the last two 10oz pictured and are marked Toronto, and of course the Bell bottling co of Winnipeg. I also have two 7oz... one marked Maple Leaf Beverages, and the other York Beverages.
