I remember when Hi-C came in cans that Mom had to use the can opener to pop triangular holes in to be able to pour. They had orange, grape, and I think lime..

ahhhh, I can hear the can opening now.....don't forget to put the extra little hole on the opposite side to ease the pour!!!

I still remember the graphics on the label. There was a giraffe with a bunch of kids. There is nothing like juice from a can!

Later, they took off the giraff and just had the kids!

Yes, but it was'nt lime. It was Citrus Cooler, and light green. Yeah I remember the cans and the can opener, again, the good old days and fond memories.

The newer version of the Citrus Cooler flavor re-incarnated, no pun intended, as Ghostbusters Ecto-cooler. Because it was green.

On the back of the labels that were on the cans were pictures of "The Partridge Family". I had all the albums and this was my way of getting mini posters to put on my wall. I had the whole family but "Laurie" never made it to my wall. She was tucked under my pillow so I could be near her in my dreams. It was also the only drink my mom would let us drink besides Shasta sugar free sodas.

They also had peach and it was my absolute favorite drink as a kid. My mom would buy it because she hated to buy soda but I actually think there was more sugar in Hi-C.

I'm from the Phila. area, and I could have sworn there was a Halloween seasonal juice in a can -- green like the citrus cooler -- called witches brew. Anyone remember this?

I enjoyed drinking canned punch flavored Hi-C. It was so delicious and addictive.

I guess I'm drifting into 80's territory here, but I gotta say I LOVED Candy Apple Cooler.This flavor was released in a sealed can like in the 70's,so I guess it's kind of relevant.

Wild Berry, Cherry, Grape, Peach? YUM!! Hi-C was a staple in our house throughout the 70s. We had the larger cans and the smaller ones for my school lunches. I remember the commercial based on the song "High Hopes". ..."Oops there goes another orange ice, oops, there goes another cherry ice..." I miss canned drinks you had to puncture on both sides w/ that can opener.

Hi-C has, since 1948, been a product of Minute Maid, Division of Coca Cola, only sold in the 46-ounce cans until the early 1990s, when other means of selling it were created. TV commercial with family enjoying Cherry drink. This aired on "Lost In Space" over CBS (1/26/66).
