Tonic water in a can

Has anyone seen this in the US? I have been looking all over - in stores, online, calling, etc... and can't find it here.

      Hansens sells it in small 8 oz cans and 365 / Whole Foods sells it in 12 oz cans.

      I bought both at Whole Foods recently

    2. FWIW, I was just cleaning out one of my, uh, less organized cabinets this weekend and came across an old but not ancient (no more than 2 years old) 12 oz can of Canada Dry tonic water. I think more recently I've bought either liters or the small bottles, so I can't say whether I've seen cans on the shelf lately.

        Thanks... I found it at Whole Foods. What is Hansens? I think that both Canada Dry and Schweppes (which are owned by the same company) made or make it in cans, but I have only seen it outside of the US.

      2. Safeway and Vons Markets have it in 12 oz. cans under Safeway's private label brand of sodas. I've often seen it on sale for $1 per six pack when you buy 4 six packs of any flavor variety.

        1. If you live near a safeway, the store brand tonic comes in a can for $1.25 a six-pack.
