ISO: Natural(-ish) Cola in Toronto

I'm looking for a corn-syrup-free cola thats available in Toronto (preferably somewhere in the west end).

Criteria:

1. No HFCS. No artificial sweeteners. (The fewer artificial ingredients, the better.)
2. Available in cans (or some other single serving format).
3. Reasonably priced - lets say less than $1/serving. Bonus points for anything close to $0.50/serving.

I prefer a Coke-like flavour profile.

Thanks.

    Boylan's makes a cane-syrup cola that is very good. But it's not cheap. Not sure of per unit price, but definitely more than $.50 per single-serve bottle.

      Doubt you'll find Boylan's for under a dollar even. It's usually at least 1.50 or 2 bucks in a grocery store from what I recall

        Yeah, it's not cheap, but it's good. If you buy from Mr. Case, it's $31.99 for a case of 24.

      Your only option at that price point was kosher/passover coke, but that was only in 2L bottles. Unfortunately you just missed the boat on that one.

      You're going to have to pay more for what you're asking for.

        Actually we just had a talk about this on the RFD website. A mod there said theres a new product being sold at RCSS that is canned and is all natural, I'm trying to remember the name.. Sky Blue Soda Co. or something like that? No HFCS and sold in 12 packs like the canned coke.

        I will report back

            I drink Sky Blue Soda when I feel guilty about drinking too much coke. They have LOTS of flavours including vanilla cola, cola and cherry cola (from what I remember). It usually 99 cents a can or sometimes a 6 pack will go on sale at Whole Foods for $3.99. It's the closest to coke that I can find. I think Whole Foods has an aisle devoted to natural sodas, so it might be your best bet to finding other brands you can try.
