All of the other Boston America drinks have a different code on the bottom of the can. An example: C1824BA-R: “C” stands for March (3rd letter of the alphabet and 3rd month), “18” stands for 2018, “24” stands for the 24th day of the month, “BA” is Boston America and “R” is the color of the drink (R - cherry, B - blue raspberry, or P - bubblegum). In this example, the drink flavor is cherry flavored, and it was produced on March 24, 2018.
