    Are these cans circa 1974/5ish?

    I can see that there is not metric measurements on it, and I assume lift top means pop top, plus the cans are straight up to the top (where as early 80's they became tapered)

    I've also wondered why they printed "Caramel Color" What was the reasoning for this.

    I'm my opinion Wonkapete's collection will be known as the Smithsonian Institution of soda pop container and miscellaneous items archives. In time well after we are all 6ft under his collection will attract visitors from all over the world. (Said with much respect and awe.)

    Who was it that first came up with fridge packs? Coke? Pepsi? Some smaller brand and the big guys copied? (not counting those plastic ones you would always see in Harriet Carter gift catalogs)

    Alcoa (aluminum people) invented the fridgepack. Coke Consolidated tested them, with the Mello Yello brand. The rest is history.

    Yep, my wife brought me back coke and mello yello fridgepacks about 5-6 yrs ago when visiting her grandmother in N.C. I'll have to find them and see what the copyright date is. About 6 months later, they were everywhere.
