Looking at one of the Pickers show series last night and they showed a ”Super Coola” soft drink can. Man, did that bring back memories.

I think it was the first large scale distribution of soda in a can in New York. I grew up drinking that brand, Grape flavor was my favorite.

Yea I know guys, this was back in the 50s. :tux:

Most of you guys are too young, or maybe not even around :D


Anyway I searched the internet and found information on the product:


C&C soda cone top cans P2

I saw it on the show, but had never seen it before. Very cool.

I remembered when both Coke and Pepsi started using cans, parents were in an uproar because they resembled Beer Cans.

Those were the days, Coke was a guy’s drink, and Pepsi was a gal’s drink. A guy would not want to be seen drinking a Pepsi.

In Southern California, in the 50s, it didn't matter whether you liked Coke or Pepsi. I was a Pepsi guy. All in all I'd rather have a Dr. Pepper though...

And outside the perimeter (well before the perimeter opened) it was RC Cola (which btw, according to wiki, was the first to sell a soft drink in an aluminum can). :D

Yes, in a Aluminum can.

But the "Cone Top" soda cans were produced at the New York bottling plant in the late 1940's for several soda flavors (I wonder what metal was used? :eek:).

It was in 1954, that Royal Crown became the first to sell a soft drink in a flat top aluminum can. :D
