Do you remember these? No one I talk to seems to remember. They were around in the early 80's...little cans of soda. They were the same diameter as a regular can of soda, just half as tall. I was just a little kid in the early 80's but I definitely remember. Maybe they were region- specific. (I'm in WA State) Do you remember them?

I remember these! No one I talked to ever remember them either. My mom used to buy them for us on 'movie night' of for slumber parties. I have seen them in WalMart recently.

They have become popular again due to 2 factors, 1. Can have a coke but not have all the calories and sugar. 2. Great for drink mixing LOL ive heard them called cokelets, pepsilets and they are widely available from Wal Mart, Target and some grocery stores.

These would never be enough to satisfy me. It would be gone in like 2 minutes if I ever drank out of these. When I buy cans I always buy the regular sized ones and sometimes those aren't even enough.

these small cans were designed with both kids and the health conscious in mind and are made by a third party company that is contracted by soda companies they come in coke, a and w rootbeer, crush orange, RC cola, seagrams gingerale with plans on expanding the line as well as availability.

Actually the small cans' origins were a little more decadent and had nothing to do with being health conscious--although that is the reason for their current popularity. For years 8-oz cans were mostly only available at liquor stores and places like Smart n Final. People with home bars liked them because they were the right size mixer for drinks in a 12 -oz DOF glass with ice. I remember being thrilled as a child when we'd go to my parents' friends Christmas parties circa 1979 and they'd pull out a little can of 7:Up just for me from the fridge of the wetbar (remember those???). Anywho, eventually somebody figured out small cans could be more widely marketed as a less-caloric smaller portion...but they really began life as no-waste mixers for the rum & Coke, Seven & Seven, & Long Island Iced Tea crowd. :-) I still prefer the small cans and often end up finding them at a mom & pops liquor store because my supermarket tends to run out.

Cans of soda this size were served to my husband when he was in the hospital.
