The cans are also available in four of The PoP Shoppe’s classic flavours, with a twist – Lime Ricky, Radical Root Beer, Groovin’ Grape and Crazy Cream Soda. Shoppers can find PoP Shoppe cans at grocery and convenience stores across Canada, including Sobeys and Loblaws Banner stores.

The PoP Shoppe puts a smile on the faces of millions who remember PoP Shoppe stores and sodas from the 70’s and 80’s through its “stubby” glass bottles and vast flavor offerings. The PoP Shoppe story began in 1969, when two entrepreneurs began selling soda in a unique variety of flavors, at independent PoP Shoppe retail outlets. Customers would return their empty bottles each week in recognizable, red PoP Shoppe-branded crates for a refund, and then pick-up fresh bottles for their families. Over the next several years, The PoP Shoppe was operating over 1000 stores in North America. The PoP Shoppe prospered until competition from private label grocery brands forced the brand to close its doors in the 80’s. In 2002, businessman Brian Alger purchased the trademark for his favorite childhood soda. In 2004, he re-launched The PoP Shoppe brand and today, it is Canada’s top-selling premium soft drink.
