Looking to find out who won Jeopardy! tonight? Today’s Jeopardy! results will go up on this page late afternoon, with full stats early to late evening. They will be seen in the comments section at the bottom of this page.
Introduced by Seagram in 1939 to commemorate that year’s royal visit to Canada, Crown Royal whisky today is produced solely in Gimli, Manitoba, while the original Seagram site in Waterloo currently plays host to the Waterloo offices of e-commerce giant Shopify (in addition to other development). Another fun fact about Crown Royal: many kitchen-table Scrabble enthusiasts use Crown Royal’s famous purple holding bags to hold their tiles (as the bags shipped with the game are woefully inadequate for the task).
Meanwhile, Royal Crown is a famous soda brand which at one point rivaled Coke and Pepsi for supremacy. Their fortunes hinged upon Diet Rite no-calorie cola, but the company suffered a huge setback due to its sweetener cyclamate being banned by the FDA in the late 60s. The brand now belongs to Dr Pepper Snapple in the United States / Cott Beverages outside of it.
Remember, you can also now get the following products (and others!) from our new store! Here are our top sellers; all prices are in US dollars!
