Budd Beverage Soda Labels

SKU: VLC1005 $4.20 USD



Historic Overview

These antique beverage labels from Budd Beverages measure 4.25” Wide x 3.8” High and date back to the 1930s. The labels feature a Champaign glass in the center with the slogan “The Taste Tells”. The labels offered include Creamy Root Beer, Golden Ginger Ale, Imitation Grape Soda, Orange Soda, and a Beverages label that went on different soda flavor bottles and the flavor was designated on the top or “Crown”. The drinks were produced by Newport Bottling Works of Newport, New Hampshire.

 

Budd’s Beverages, Inc. was founded by Alexander Budnitz in 1916, originally planned to serve as a grocery store for the Polish immigrants of Newport, New Hampshire.  In 1922 Budd’s Beverages started using the Newport Bottling Works and began manufacturing carbonated beverages. By the 1930s, Budd’s Beverages was well known for their production of many popular sodas of the day. Some of their special brands included Dartmouth Dry, Fruit Bowl, and Old Sol. They were also distributors for Moxie, Coke, and Ted’s Root Beer (named after Ted Williams). The company served an area that included most of New Hampshire and part of Vermont.

 

Since winters were cold and much slower, Budd’s had a bowling alley on the top floor to take care of those really slow days. The company ceased operations in 1972.

Southern Plantation Georgia Cane Syrup Label
$4.75
This Georgia Cane Syrup label went on a 1 pound 2 ounce can and measures 10.85” Wide x 3” High. It was grown, packed, and guaranteed by Cane Growers Co-Operative Association in Cairo, Georgia, who was really the W. B. Roddenbery Company.This was made from pure Georgia ribbon cane and “absolutely nothing else but the juice of Georgia ribbon cane.” The label is just gorgeous and the images don’t really do it justice. It features a Southern Mansion, workers harvesting the sugar cane, and a little log cabin in the woods with a black family making the syrup. I love their slogan, “When Better Syrup is Made. We Will Make It.”   We acquired these labels from a former employee who found them in the “Old Association Warehouse” in Cairo, Ga.   Dr. Seaborn Anderson Roddenbery started his medicine practice in 1862 in a horse-drawn buggy. In the same year he purchased a farm and sold open kettle sugar cane syrup from his medical buggy as he made his rounds. By 1867 he had an office and a general store that sold syrup from large cypress barrels, and people would bring their own jars and fill them with his cane syrup. Within five more years he had acquired 1000 acres and started to reduce his medicine practice, since he claimed 90% of his patients didn’t pay him anyway. In 1889 Roddenbery marketed the first pure Georgia cane syrup as "Roddenbery's Old Plantation Molasses." Around 1920 the business became known as the W. B. Roddenbery Company and he formed the Cane Growers Co-Operative Association. W. H. Roddenbery was a brother-in-law and owned a wholesale grocery store in Cairo. He had Roddenbery package syrup for him and later the W. B. Roddenbery Company packaged syrup for companies like A & P, Blue Plate, and Kraft. He changed the labels to read “packed for” instead of “packed by”.   WE GUARANTEE OUR LABELS TO BE AUTHENTIC AND AS DESCRIBED!
