LOOKING for: 7-Up quantity

A recipe I haven't made in many years calls for a small bottle of 7-Up. Does anyone remember how many oz. that was? It wouldn't work if I don't get the right amount.

Thanks. :)

If the recipe was from the 1960s and 1970s, it was probably a 10 oz. bottle. If earlier, maybe an 8 oz. bottle? I don't see any collectible bottles that are smaller than 10 oz.

Hope this helps.


RE: LOOKING for: 7-Up quantity

I tought thee arly bottles were 6 oz?
What's the recipe? maybe that will give a clue...if it's for something like a marinade,2 oz one way or the other won't matter a bit but in a cake it sure will!

Duh! Now I remember!...That's why it was called 7-up!

RE: LOOKING for: 7-Up quantity

I thought I remembered a smaller bottle! Like the little bottles of Coke that my mom used to love.

RE: LOOKING for: 7-Up quantity

They most definitely were seven ounces.

Thanks everyone. I thought it might be 6 oz. too. The recipe is one my Mom made in the 60's. I need to bring cool desserts on a camping trip. I hope you enjoy it. It's so easy. It's easy to see why I go by Gram. :)

There are several on E-bay for sale and they are 7oz. I also found a picture of one from c 1930 that is 7.
