Looking for Small Cans of Canada Dry Ginger Ale

I shop regularly for an elderly senior who prefers the 6-pack Canada Dry ginger ale in small cans (8 oz), not the regular size cans.

I usually find them at Loblaws, but they've been sold out for a couple of weeks. I can't find them at other grocery stores in my neighbourhood (No Frills, Metro, RCSS, or Sobeys).

Has anyone seen them elsewhere?

  1. Mr. Case sells them in packs of 24 for $19.99. I don't know if you can see this link:

    They are online order and delivery only, so I don't know if that helps you or not.

      Thanks, TorontoJo, I had a look at the link, but unfortunately it's not the size I'm looking for. The cans I want are smaller, like the small Coke cans that B.Craftie was looking for in an earlier thread.

      1. re: Chatty Cathy

        No problem, but just in case you missed it, I wanted point out the size of the cans. They are 222 ml, which is actually a smidge smaller than the short mini cans you're looking for. For example, here are the 7-up mini cans, which are 237 ml:

        I think the Canada Dry mini cans are just taller and skinnier, but they are mini nonetheless! :)

        1. re: TorontoJo

          Oh, I see! I assumed the taller cans contained more. In any event, the person for whom I'm shopping prefers the shorter cans. Thanks for the second link which is just what I'm looking for. If I can't find them at Sobey's then I can try Mr. Case. I wasn't familiar with this website but it looks very handy!

    2. Both Rabba and Sobey's near my place (downtown east) have these in stock.

        I saw small cans at Canadian Tire yesterday, but cant guarantee it was Ginger Ale. Definitely saw Coke and Sprite. (LAkeshore and Leslie)

          Gary, thanks for the information. My nearest Sobey's in Leaside carries lots of small cans, but just Schwepp's ginger ale. If your Sobey's does carry Canada Dry then I'll have a look at the next closest Sobey's first on Mt Pleasant, then check out the downtown one if necessary.

          1. re: Chatty Cathy

            I also prefer Canada Dry and like the small sizes for mixing drinks, since I tend to only put a splash in and hate to see the rest go flat. I know for sure that the Sobey's and Rabba stores on Front St East on either side of Sherbourne carry these small cans in 6-packs because I've purchased them from both stores in the past few weeks.

            1. re: Gary

              Thanks for the detailed location info on the downtown Sobey's and Rabba. I never thought of using them for mixing drinks, but I imagine you probably aren't the only one who does so; hmm, wouldn't it be handy if LCBO were able to sell them too?
