Hey, is Canada Dry really Canadian? The simple answer is yes. It was created in Toronto in 1890, by Canadian pharmacist and chemist John J. McLaughlin of Enniskillen, Ontario. He shipped his drink to New York where demand was very high for carbonated soda. He decided to build a plant in Manhattan. Canada Dry’s popularity as a mixer evolved during Prohibition when its flavor helped mask the taste of homemade liquor. In the 1930s, Canada Dry expanded worldwide. From the 1950s onward, the company introduced a larger number of products.
Canada Dry was the first major soft drink company to put soft drinks in cans (1953) and introduce sugar-free drinks (1964).
Recently the famous Canada Dry logo was updated to a new streamlined logo with just a shield with the latitude and longitude lines without the Canadian silhouette of the country. I guess Canada dried out of the logo.
“This new look encapsulates everything Canada Dry stands for, as a brand grounded in nostalgia, but always facing the future for growth,” said Keurig Dr Pepper Canada Vice President of Marketing, Tebbie Chuchla. “As we focus on strategically growing this brand with the next generation of Canada Dry fans, evolving the brand’s identity so that it better resonates with both current and future users will be critical to Canada Dry’s success. We know that Canada Dry will remain a central part of our consumers’ lives and the beverage they return to for a comforting taste of home.”
