Visitor Tips and News About Giant Can of 7-UP
I wanted to update the prior information on the giant 7up can. The local bottler (SEABEV) built the can in 1978 and it sits adjacent to I-95 between University Blvd, and Bowden Rd. The can is easily visible to all I-95 traffic. It stands 62 feet tall and is shaped to the dimensions of a real soda can...only GIANT!
The can is actually a water tower that hold 65,000 gallons of water in treatment for the high speed bottling lines located in the production facility on the same site. More than 325,000 gallons of water pass through the can everyday to produce soft drink brands like 7up, Canada Dry, Sunkist, A&W, Hawaiian Punch, and Diet Rite for our consumers in Florida and Georgia.
The can was repainted in 2003 from Canada Dry to 7up to celebrate the addition of 7up to our beverage portfolio.[cpaul, 03/20/2004]
Standing at what must be at least 30 feet tall, this was previously a giant can of Canada Dry Ginger Ale. In late 2002 the Pepsi distributer across the highway updated it to the new 7-Up can.[MierGen, 08/09/2003]
There is a giant can of Canada Dry ginger ale visible on interstate 95 between University Blvd and Bowden Rd. It is next to a small pond with ducks and has no trespassing signs all around it.[S. Winston, 05/29/1999]
