Canada Dry Jamaica Cola...

It had more caffeine than a cola had a right to have. Made by Canada Dry, we were able to get it until the Coca-Cola Bottlers of San Bernardino started selling Canada Dry flavors (it would be many years before we got Fanta.)

A few years after this, I did see Jamaica Cola in other parts of the country but I think it's gone now.
This was one of the last cans. I remember it having a much prettier one than this.
Canada Dry ended up resorting to selling only mixers like club soda, ginger ale, and tonic water. They had wonderful fruit flavors and root beer.
Too bad it's all gone.

  1. When I was a child, whenever I visited my Grandparents in Tampa, FL, she'd buy Jamaica Cola for us as a treat. We could never find it anywhere else. I miss it! Wish they'd bring it back!!!!

  2. Wow. I grew up in St. Petersburg, FL and a neighbor always had this stuff in bottles. I was just talking about it with my brother over Thanksgiving, decided to 'google it' and saw your post. Nice! That stuff was awesome.
