How to Find the Date on a 7-Up Bottle

By D. Laverne O'Neal

7Up was created by C.L. Grigg of Missouri's Howdy Corporation in 1929. Howdy's orange soda drink was a great success, so Grigg elected to flavor a drink with lemons and limes. Originally named "Bib-Label Lithiated Lemon-Lime Soda," 7Up became "the third best-selling soft drink in the world" by 1940, according to its current manufacturer, Dr. Pepper/Seven Up Inc. Bottle and label designs have evolved through the years, but finding the date is simple.

Lemon-lime flavored 7Up is available in bottles and cans.

Step 1

Lift up the bottle of 7Up.

Step 2

Look at the base, or bottom, of the bottle to find the date.

Step 3

Look at the neck or label. If the plant has not printed the date on the base, it can be found on the neck or label of the bottle.
