    check out the cap on this Bim-bo.

    anyone have any info on this 1950-60’s, ACL bottle and cap. An old post says Bimbo glass figurines date to 1920-30’s ,and was the sidekick of Betty Boop. I don't believe this bottle has that connection. If it was a USA brand, it moved to Mexico sometime later. Click image for larger version.

    Bimbo Beverages was based in the USA, and called the Bimbo Bottling Co. of Laredo, Texas.
    They bottled a 10 oz. bottled soda, which is dated 1950. Click image for larger version.

    Say 'Beembo'
    "The brand's name BIMBO (pronounce Beembo), which is also the name of the bear character. BIMBO is derived from the Italian word bambino, meaning little boy. Grupo Bimbo is Mexico's largest food corporation and a multinational baking giant that owns Stroehmann, Arnold, Freihofer's, and Brownberry bread; Boboli pizza; Thomas' English Muffins; and Entenmann's cakes. It opened its first Mexican plant in 1945 and started exporting and distributing its leading products into California and Texas in 1984. This was the brand which purchased Hostess Products a few years back.
