College Inn - Soda Bottle?

Dug this one recently...Embossed twice around shoulders "College Inn"...Have dug another type that used a crown closure...but can't locate it presently to post a pic.
Was this a soda ?

    A couple other people asked about that bottle here, but no useful information was given:
    http://www.google.com/search?source=ig&hl=en&q=college+inn+site%3Ahttp%3A%2F%2Fwww.bottlebooks.com&btnG=Google+Search

    Is it possible that it is from here?

    Sorry I can't be of more help. Very cool bottle though!

    I've dug one or two of these before. I'm pretty sure they contained beef or chicken broth or something of the like. They're still in business today.

    i have seen these bottles in clear and green. they were always refered to as a soda. the ones i've seen had the regular soda cap top. that opening reminds me of a molk or fruit juice opening.

    Thanks for the responses. Finally located the other example. ..they are smaller, about the size of a Welch's grape juice and used a crown  cap closure.

    Glass Monkey...that's interesting about a possible Chicago connection. I  have dug these off and on here over the years...mostly in a local town dump...Makes it appear they were distributed locally, perhaps ??

    I think the large one is a key top. I don't know if they could hold the soda preasures.If not the broth sounds more likely. I'll go hunt for the key top thread.

    edit
    It was called PRIOF and I'm still not sure about preasure but it's looking like it would.
