I have Canada Dry bottles (one liters of bitter lemon, collins mix) from Pepsi, College Point New York and then Dr Brown's says on the side of the can, "Canada Dry Bottlers, College Point New York."

can anyone shed light on who or what is up there and what they make? the collins mix has been discontinued by our local canada dry dist.

College Point, along with practically every other C-D bottler in this area, is a Honickman company. They all deal in the main DSPU stuff, minus Dr Pepper (which is mostly Coke in their areas, but Pepsi in some others).

There are local variations, with the Delaware Valley franchises putting out a lot more of the C-D flavors, and they also have Snapple.

College Point produces all the Dr. Brown's I've ever seen.

Like southern NJ, I believe that Honickman also owns the Pepsi franchise in College Point.

I recall a mention of Dr Browns during an episode of The Simpsons 2 weeks ago.
