The original supersized cola, came in a 12 oz returnable bottle when coke and pepsi were still only 10 oz. Available only in Newfoundland. Great with a krinkle and an export A.

At one time, Spur Cola was only available in Newfoundland. Canada Dry brought it to the US in 1962. Spur did not get as much promotion as Wink, but managed to survive until 1970. It was never as popular (or as tasty) as the Big Three (Coke, Pepsi, RC).

I remember as a child of around 10 or 11, in the early 1960s, my mother used to buy me 2 or 3 bottles of Spur Cola a week from our local newsagent in Sevenoaks, UK. These would have been around 10 or 12 fl oz bottles. I never saw it in any other shop, but now wonder, having read this page, if the shop sold other Canada Dry drinks, or it was made under licence by a UK soft drinks manufacturer. Over the years I've wondered about Spur Cola and what happened to it. I'm renowned for having a memory for trivia from my young days and Googled Spur Cola with no expectation of finding anything. Glad to know others remember it. Be amused to know if anyone else from the UK has memories.

The brand Spur is actually sold in the Netherlands in 4 flavors and as I have heard that they will produce the Spur Cola. As I also remember this product from South America when I was a child. Great to have it back.

When I was 15, 1960 in Bay de Verde, Newfoundland. Growing up I bought Spur Cola, almost like the classic Coca-Cola bottle. For 25 cents you got a bottle of Spur, a bag of chips and a slice of bologna for lunch.
