FRESH 12oz glass bottles Nesbitt’s Orange soda!!! The Nesbitt Fruit Products Company was founded in 1924 by Hugh S. Nesbitt. In 1927 the company began producing Nesbitt’s Orange for distribution to soda fountains where it was mixed with 5 parts of water. When they started bottling it in 1938-39 it was distinguished by the fact that it was made from 10% California orange juice. The brand was franchised to independent bottling companies all over the United States and around the world. Besides Orange, other flavors bottled included: Creme Soda, Grape, Strawberry, Root Beer, Lemon-Lime, to name a few. Nesbitt’s also made Sprig, a lemon-lime drink.
