    Ma-Cherie Sales Corp. / St. Louis, Missouri

    Finally, the last name change or is it another company name that sold beverages alongside Sun Drop. Ma Cherie Sales Corp. had a few variations that are as common as Sun Drop, but a couple of them are harder to find. First there is a, what I call a transition bottle from Sun Drop to Ma Cherie. Its Cherry Cola bottled by Sun Drop, itís a 9-ounce, mid 1960ís and is so similar to the common Ma Cherie bottles.

    The other Ma Cherie in my collection that has the Sun Drop name is 9-ounce dated 1967. Next to her is a 1965, 9-ounce Fruit Cola. Paired with the Ma Cherie Cola is the dual side picture bottle La Orange/La Grape. Both 9-ounce 1968 for the Cola and 1960 for La Orange/La Grape.

    Finally, from Ma Cherie, is a somewhat rare Hill Bill Cola and the quite common Hill Billy Brew. Hmm both dated 1965, the cola is a 9-ounce and the brew is a 10-ounce. Some sort of lawsuit required for the name change, even the name on the bucket is changed from cola mix to brew mix.

    Wow... great stuff as always... bet it took some time to find these in the condition you have... bottles in this condition are getting harder ad harder to find... looks like an awesome collection.
    Thanks for all the informative post... Being from Missouri myself I really enjoy these.
