Most sodas would say "lemon-lime." Has to be Upper 10!

Thanks for ALL the help! Learned a lot about old brands!

Great! I was thinking it may have once been painted label that has worn off.
Still, I can't say I've seen an Upper 10 (at least in my experience) that was textured like that. See pic of my "Upper 10" bottle below.

Absolutely true, Taht. Nowdays Royal Crown is on its' last legs, a shadow of what it once was. I only have one or two places that I can find it.

Speaking of RC

When I was young there was nothing quite like an ice-cold RC with some red salted-peanuts dumped in the bottle. I don't know why that combination was so good, but it was amazing.

Hey Iggys, is there a date code on the bottom? Definately newer than the one I posted, which was 1952.
