All of the Coca-Cola collectors can "drool" over Bottom's Up cone top cans. They were filled by the Tri State Flavor Company which was a division of the Quaker State Coca-Cola Bottling Company of Butler, Pennsylvania.
To save money, the first generation of Bottom's Up was a generic type can with the flavor on the cap instead of on the face of the can. A second generation can followed with the flavor printed on the cans.
No other cans beyond the production of the cone tops are known to exist, but at least four generations of 8 ounce bottles dating from 1956 to 1974 have been cataloged.
