Found this bottle recently. I never knew Coca-Cola had this product-Chime. It was only made for 2 years or so in the Texas area and possibly in New England area. It was like a Dr Pepper flavor drink. This was an early version of Mr Pibb tasting drink.

Here is a close up of label. The bottle was a 10 ounce size. If you know anything about Chime let me know.

The Coca-Cola bottlers were aproached in 1964 and asked to bottle it. The bottle has a date code of 1965 on it. And by 1966, they stopped bottling it. I thought since it was such a short time and limited area it was available, it must have been some sort of test market too.

The Coca-Cola Company used the trade-mark Chime for several products including coffee and a soft drink.
This particular bottle was a Dr Pepper style soft drink.

This was The Coca-Cola Company's first attempt at a Dr Pepper style drink. Chime was not advertised a great deal, plus they tried to introduce it in Texas, Dr Pepper's home. So Chime wasn't around long, a few years, maybe ended around 1966. I asked a Texas bottler if Chime and Mr. Pibb tasted exactly alike. He said they were very similar in taste. Mr Pibb came out in 1972, so there was a gap between the products being introduced.

Here is an item I saw at the Springtime in Atlanta' Coca-Cola CLub Convention. It is a sample kit showing all the items a bottler could order with the Chime soft drink logo on it. It includes a money clip, tie tacks, cuff links, lighter, key chain and a pocket knife.
This is the only thing I have seen with the Chime logo other than the bottle.
