Yes, Fresca is already listed here, but it's the CAN that it came in that I distinctly remember! It had the typical ring-pull top, but underneath, instead of a big hole to drink out of, it had a bunch of tiny holes, much like the spout of one of those old plant-watering cans. What; was this so you couldn't drink it as fast? (And maybe it wasn't only Fresca, but that was the only one I saw back in those days!)

It's interesting that you reference a watering can because when I was a little kid somebody told my mom this stuff was good for houseplants. We had cases of it in our garage just for this purpose (none of us were allowed to actually DRINK it)!

Here in Canada too...the can was pale blue with green lettering. As for the tiny holes, this was something that can manufacturers were experimenting with, but it seems to me that such cans were "closed" with a peelable piece of chrome-coloured tape that was somewhat tear-drop shaped with a rectanguar part at the top end that wasn't sticky. You grabbed this part and peeled off the tape to drink out of the can.
