Yup another 12oz er!

Well I now have the 12oz Canada Dry Grapefruit residing above my monitor as I type! :mrgreen:

I have had the good fortune to discover/document three previously unknown 12oz cans, in 2014 a Grape Shasta, in 2015 a Lemon-Lime Shasta and now (2016) the CD Grapefruit.
I believe this would be the 16th Canadian FT 12oz can known, when I say known I mean that if it ain't posted on the Rusty Bunch site it ain't!...well and of course we can't forget Dave T's invaluable soda can guide that has them listed :smt023

Only two other flavors are known at this time, Ginger Ale and Orange, so there are several other flavors in 12oz that have not come out of hiding yet.
I was not really too hopeful this can would ever show up, in fact I figured the second generation 10oz would be the first.

And the 1965 add in French print showing the second generation 10oz Grapefruit, with an approximant translation.
