Chocolate Flavored Mello 6 oz

Here’s the story.
I’ve reached a dead end on this. Some have chimed in but no one has heard of it.
The way I figure is Mello Bottling Co of Niagara Falls commissioned this from Baker Bottling Works.
SEE THIS original thread.

I can take some more pics if the camera holds out but I've gone over it quite well. There's some dust and maybe a partial spider web. Otherwise, excellent!

I don't often ask a $ question but I have to. I’m probably losing my job seeing my hours cut from 45 to 35 and last week 25 in the last month.
Any thoughts? You want it or might it eBay well? I'll keep it if it's a $1-10 junker.

    Well, no response so I guess I'll bay it. I thought of a 50/50 for the forum but I can't afford to lose money right now.

    Going back to THIS

    Then seeing THIS I think the BBW may be Brooklyn Bottling Works. It shows ginger ale and strawberry soda.

    What do you think? Any listing in the later "blue books" I've heard about.

    I also found this but the pic is from a deleted ebay list on google images. It didn't come out to well with the resizing.

    I'm feeling better about it being the Wilbert Heyman, the "father of instant coffee" and probably Brooklyn Bottling Works.
    I just wish I could prove it.
    I still can't make a good enough connection to anything in Niagara, Poughkeepsie or elsewhere else.

    FIRST PATENT for instant coffee 1935 that I found


    1927 for CHOCOLATE MILK COMPOSITION


    Maybe the 28N 1 is a date.I'll have to check when the Nestles®Quicks came out.

    I don't know why I didn't see this before, maybe it's just came out. More likely I just was looking in the wrong places though.

    Cows ~

    I'm not sure if you saw this but thought I'd share it just in case you haven't ...

    http://www.bottlecapclub.org/index.php

    1. After opening link click on "Crown Cap Search"
    2. @ "Description / Brand / Contains" enter the word Chocolate (But don't use the word Mellow)
    3. Go to Page 2
    4. Click on "Chocolate Mellow" images on bottom row for detailed info.

    I hope this helps.

    SPB

    This is the shape I typically see in a Mello bottle.

    Cool site Dennis. I never seen that but it's a bookmark now. ID# 022829 shows the ebay cap and says Niagara Falls, 1926-39. I guess Niagara is back in the running too. If I could just nail down the B.B.W.

    zecritr, I don't remember if I ever listed it. It was still in the investigation stage last year when I started this thing. If I did I didn't get $5 for it 'cause it's still here.

    N. H. Heymann was listed in the 1925 Blue Book as a supply firm located at 438 E 59th St in Brooklyn. I found no other listings for Heyman, Mello, or the Niagara Falls reference for the 1923 and 1925 resources I have.

    I found the following label but this seems to be a near beer with a different owner name.

    Nestles®Quick
    They were post WWII .
    I think it was morb that hat the '30 book? I see nothing 1n the '25 either but that predates evrything we've come up with so far.
    I hope he's not mad at me for contemplating deleting the GUNS GUNS GUNS thread? I really just posed the question of should I.
    I'll shoot him a PM (no pun intended).

    I haven't researched it yet but I came across a reference for a ...

    Buffalo Bottling Works / B.B.W.

    Buffalo and Niagara Falls are about 20 miles apart. ???

    (Dead End) ...

    It took me a while but I finally tracked down the Buffalo Bottling Works / B.B.W. It turns out it was located in San Rafael, California and not New York. It's the only B.B.W. I came across that was worth looking into and related to a bottling company. I'm sure there are others but they are currently eluding me. ???

    Good luck.

    Bob

    The Buffalo Soda Works:

    Another company, the Buffalo Soda Works, also operated in San Rafael in the late 1800s. The town's soda works seemed to attract fires, for according to the San Francisco Chronicle, on September 22, 1896 a fire that broke out at the Buffalo Soda Works and “destroyed the main building and outhouses. The building was the property of A. Arbini and the soda works was conducted by J. Phelps.”

    This is interesting though maybe irrelevant. FROM JULY 5, 1931
