Hi everyone,
Dug with a bunch of 1930s milks. “Fru Ju” registered contents 8 flu. ozs. Base says “PAT applied for”. Any info about the company/dating/ drink type would be appreciated. I can’t find anything.

I have found some of this type in waco tx, along with kob dr peppers. 1930s era seems correct. I was told it was a fruit drink used in schools by an old time digger. Was also told they were common there so I didn't save one. Wish I had now. They are a cool bottle it's a great score hold on to it.

Those fruit/orange juice bottles with the milk cap tops were big in the 30s-40s. I have several local ones in the collection. BTW is that 37 on the bottom? That may be the date.

Dug another from the same spot. A few interesting differences. Bottle is heavier. “J” is dotted and no embossing on the bottom of the bottle.
