Fruit Products Company was founded in 1924 by Hugh S. Nesbitt, and was franchised from Nesbitt Fruit Products, Los Angeles, California, producing syrups to be used in soda fountains. The company produced a full line of fountain products through the years including various fruit flavors to be mixed with soda water, toppings for ice cream, including chocolate, hot fudge, crushed pineapple and strawberries, and, a hot chocolate base.
It appears that they began bottling Nesbitt's Orange Soda in 1938. Although Nesbitt's came in a variety of flavors, all were marketed in the same bottle and identified by different caps. The brand was franchised to independent bottling companies all over the United States and around the world. Nesbitt's Fruit Products Company was eventually sold to Clorox in 1972.
With the relaunch of this great nostalgic brand you can now experience what made Nesbitt's so popular in its day.
