    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).
