Betti-Cola is the 1993 debut album from Canadian twee pop group Cub. Originally released in fall of 1993, the album was remastered and re-released with bonus tracks in 2007 by Mint Records.

The album features tracks taken from various 7" EP's as well as a handful of covers. A 12-song double EP 7" called Betti Cola, with similar cover art, was released at roughly the same time as the CD.

Cover art is courtesy of legendary Archie Comics cartoonist Dan DeCarlo.
