Expo 67 Chocolate Drink

A reader sent me this photo of a sparkling chocolate drink from Expo 67.

The label reads: "Bottled by or under authority of Pure Spring (Canada) Limited. Ottawa, Canada by appointment of EXPO 67".

The bottle was never opened. I wonder how it tastes...

How cool is that! Almost strange that it was never opened... I wouldn't really offer myself to taste it now, maybe back then, but not now...

Oh I remember tasting it back then and it was not very good at all. Would love a bottle for my collection now though.

I was 11 years old when I went to EXPO67 in Montreal...I tasted this beverage for the first time and enjoyed it along with all the other PURE SPRING drinks from Ottawa. Being that I moved away from OTTAWA/GATINEAU, I have never seen the drink again but have tried other chocolate beverages such as chocolate flavoured beer, wine with chocolate essence, chocolate tequila and chocolate chai tea and the like. I wish they would bring back all good things that are Canadian such as the Sparkling chocolate soda...
On another note I am still trying to find a rhubarb juice I found around twenty years ago in Safeway stores in Calgary...it was so refreshing and delicious, I could only wish to be able to acquire this product over all the other juice 'cocktails' available today! I realize it was probably an American product. :(
