    Green Nugrape

    I found a green Nugrape bottle. It has Nugrape Bottle Company Knoxville Tenn on the bottom. Embossed on the side is a monogram style NGBCo. It is a 6 1/2 ounce bottle. I can not find anything about it. Is anyone familiar?

    Nugrape is a soda that was franchised out of Atlanta, Georgia by the The Nu-Grape Company of America. I have a similar 6 oz. NuGrape that was bottled locally here in St. Louis, Mo.
    One side of the bottle says "Not Grape Juice" and the states "Imitation Grape" I am guessing there are different variations of Nugrape.Click image for larger version.

    they sold Nugrape in Canada too , I found one a few years back when they dug out the ditches down the road , one was uncovered in near mint condition

    but I doubt yours is actually " green " more likely " aqua " in colour like the ones in the pictures , I've never seen a dark green nu grape bottle

    Very cool find! My brother lives in a condo in the original Nugrape headquarter offices in Atlanta. A developer converted the old brick headquarters building into about 20 very unique units some years ago.

    Any of you NuGrape collectors interested in this mirrored go-with? The white background is actually a mirror. Very nice condition. PM me.

    Nice bottle. Would love to have one like that. Been following your posts and hope to get back into adding to my St. Louis collection. I forget how many different varieties there are. Thanks for sharing this one.
