They came in a light blue bottle and were flavored water. Many different flavors with a couple of examples being peach and cherry. They're beginning to be sold in stores again now in a new bottle design.

The original ones from the late 80's/early 90's also had wacky flavors like huckleberry.

I THINK THIS WAS THE 80'S VERSION OF AQUAFINA! VERY GOOD WHEN REAL COLD. I HAD NO PROBLEM AS A CHILD DRINKING WATER LIKE THIS.

These were so good! I bought them all the time at the drug store (Arbor Drugs) I worked at in Michigan! Good times!

I loved all the different flavors, especially blackberry. Clearly Canadian also has a ginger lemonade now that's excellent.

My friend Sam used to drink these all the time, they were a real treat! We used to collect the beautiful blue bottles afterwards and just arrange them around the room. They were delicious, very light and fruity, with not too much sugar.

I clearly remember my older cousin and her friends drinking this in the late 80s early 90s. I thought that they were so cool so I had my mom buy them for me. I expecially liked the blackberry one!

The bottles were clear at first, with a little pic of the fruit flavor they were right on the front. They sold them in small individual sized bottles & Big bottles. I still have one of the big bottles, I use it as a vase for fake flowers, it's been a vase ever since 1991! :) I have seen it lately @ the stores, it tastes almost the same. Mix the blackberry flavor with pomegranate blueberry juice for a special spritzer.

We used to drink this in the early nineties with vodka. They had a sour apple one that was delicious!

I used to live on this stuff! Everyday after school my friends and I would go to the "Cantine" (which was really just the snack bar) and buy clearly canadian and some sort of sugary snack. Those were the days!

I really loved this stuff as a kid, and I still drink it. Albertson's, Safeway and Wal-Mart all have something very similar, which is also manufactured in Canada. The raspberry flavor is almost the same as Clearly Canadian, but the plastic bottle ruins the flavor.

I used to get them from 7-11 when I was a kid. I remember they were really good. I always got the green apple or cherry. I am sad to see that they have less calories. I really hope they haven't started using diet sugars.

This stuff is really great! just about any flavor was good. I really wish they would bottle it in those clear blue bottles again. I remember buying it in the 90's by the case because I was afraid they would not sell them again since I saw less and less stores carry them.

I remember my dad used to drink these all the time when I was a kid. I loved the color and shape of the bottles, I wish they were still around.

For 2 years starting in my freshman year in high school (1993) there used to be a rinky dink roach coach that most people would buy food from (as we lacked an actual cafeteria at the time). The only thing I felt safe having for lunch there was peach clearly canadian and a small bag of those spicy crunchy cheetos. For 2 years that's all I ate for lunch. And I LOVED it! I can drink CC every single day of my life. Ironically, I live in Canada now and hardly anyone I know has heard of it. LOL.

my siblings and I used to ride our bikes to Holiday Gas station in Calumet Michigan (early 90 s) to buy cheap candy and Clearly Canadian. I loved the taste and the cool bottles.

When I was working in L.A. in the early 90's, I would buy the green apple, cherry, and peach from 7-11. I actually preferred CC to soda even though I was a Pepsi fiend!

The blackberry was so good. I mentioned this on Monday to my bf and "I have no idea what you're talking about" came out of his mouth. Shame.

Supposedly Clearly Canadian is coming back this summer in its original form. Not sure where to find it.
Amanda - August 09, 2010 - Report this comment
There was a little convenience store by my dance studio, I'd always go grab a cherry or blackberry CC after class!

Mountain Blackberry was the best! I recently found it in the grocery store in Chicago, but they added artificial sugars to it and is just not good.

I used to drink the peach one at my dance classes on Thursday nites! :)

I love the blackberry. I remember buying them all the time. Hope they start selling them everywhere again!

I only remember blackberry for some reason. I find these rarely (once every 2 years, perhaps) at Big Lots for 79 cents, always a treat. I think the bottles have changed a bit. I remember larger glass bottles with a blackberry and Clearly Canadian in white lettering from the 80's. Glass bottles tinted vaguely blue.

I only drank cranberry flavour,and they didnt bring it back.

I'm Canadian and I drank this stuff all the time around 88 and 89. Funny thing is I don't remember it being in a blue bottle; only clear glass, kind of like an orangina bottle. Cherry and blackberry were best. Someone recently told me all those clearly canadian drinks had caffiene in them. I certainly don't recall this. Anyone heard anything along those lines?

The peach flavored one was amazing! Oh what I would pay to have another one!

@Michelle, what store in Chicago did you see Clearly Canadian? I must know now!
Shannon - November 10, 2012 - Report this comment
Blackberry is the best!!!! I've been craving it lately and was suprised to see it's still around at some places....I thought they had stopped making it. Yeah, So excited.

The bottle was clear but definitely had a bluish tint to it. There is a 1994 commercial on youtube
