Fresca & TaB

#1

Post by Canadacan »

Ok this is The Fresca & TaB generations and variations, If you see something not posted here that you have, feel free to post pictures so it can be added to the list.

Something to note for Fresca is the the 'Calorie Reduced-Contains Sugar' line appears to have been introduced in 1976 as per evidence of a advertising salesman promotion literature. In the ad there is no 'Sugar Free' shown and I can only assume that they discontinued it?, the latter cans do show the 'Sugar Free' once again, however I still need to confirm if both products were produced simultaneously. I may have added an extra generation by mistake out of confusion.
34cans

First Generation
FrCal1-01-10oz- Coca-Cola Ltd., Head Office, Toronto, Ontario M4H 1B8 -CC483 -(10fl. oz. 284ml) ST-Calorie Reduced-Contains Sugar-no UPC- CS

FrCal1-03 -10oz- Coca-Cola Ltd., Head Office, Toronto, Ontario M4H 1B8 -CC483 -(280ml) ST-No 'Contains Sugar' statement-Trade Mark Reg. in block letters- SS



For the TaB line up of products the 'Contains Sugar' was introduced in around 1968 as 'New TaB' with 'Sugar Added-No Cyclamates' and it continued to run simultaneously with the 'Sugar Free' to the end of the 70's at least. The TaB with sugar was known in 1976 as 'TaB Plus'...maybe even earlier?...and was reintroduced in around 78-79? as 'New Diet TaB'.
