Historical Notes about “WARD’S Orange Crush Soda” incorporated 1916 ;
Mr. Clayton J. Howel Originally Established himself in 1911, as president and founder of the “Orange Crush Company” selling what was know as "Howell's Orange Julep" to Soda Fountains & Drug Stores. He later partnered up with Neil C. Ward in 1916 and incorporated the new company.
“Ward’s Orange-Crush" Soda was formulated with Neil Ward's recipe for Mr. Clayton Howel. Soft drinks of the time often carried the surname of the inventor along with the product name. Howel sold the rights to use his name in conjunction with his first brand Orange Julep" ; therefore, Ward was given the new honors ; Crush was first premiered as “Ward's Orange Crush”. Originally Orange Crush included orange pulp in the bottles, giving it a "fresh squeezed" illusion even though the pulp was added rather than remaining from squeezed oranges. Pulp has not been in the bottles for decades.
Soda Fountain Notes :
Soda fountain syrup manufactures would often give the soda syrup dispensers away free to neighborhood pharmacies as a way to advertise their brand as long as the drug stores bought enough of the soda syrup. Syrup manufacturers such as Ward made the famous syrups for Orange Crush, Lemon Crush and Lime Crush. Ward’s dispensers were shaped like the fruit drink which was being dispensed – oranges, lemons and limes.
