They'd look better if they were full..... ;)
I've probalby got a 10 pack carrier with the mid 90's logo on it, picked it up if I remember correctly, in Utah on the way to Vegas years ago. All I have is the carrier though, don't think I saved any of the bottles.

I remember the 7oz Pepsi cans - made by Pepsi in Newport News VA in the 70's. Didn't look anything like the squat 8oz cans made today.

I remember those little 7 ounce bottles. Many vending machines used them in the 70's.

That's it - they made Suburban and Tru Ade too, maybe some others that I never found. Was that can produced in VA or were there other canners making that size?
I've wondered who figured out that exactly 8 oz. was the right size for a small can, not 7 oz. Sheer genius.

Didn't Canada have 7oz cans in the mid to late 70's. I recall??? getting soda pops from an soda pop machine in Ontario and thinking WOW this can is small. Is this a figment of my old age memory?

PBG-Baltimore was still producing Suburban as of a few years ago, though I think they've since stopped (it was a 2 liter only package at that point).

In the NYC area between 1988 and 1991 there was a mom and pop shoppe in Queens Village that was selling 7oz crown cap glass bottles embossed pepsi logo.that was the last time I saw anything like that.

Suburban. TruAde. It took about 3 seconds to drink that tiny can of soda.
