I got this 6 0z. embossed "not amber "Chocolate Soldier the other day. Marked on the bottom LG-225 (Laurens Glass Works). I have only seen one before. That one and this one were pretty beat up with case wear. How rare are these and so on... I do not know. Thanks for any information you may have.

I am mostly into older BIMAL stuff; but I have to say that is one DANDY SODA BOTTLE!
I wonder what chocolate soda tastes like--is such a product still made and popular anywhere?
I like chocolate and coffee ales, and have always had a sweet tooth; so, I'd try a bottle of Chocolate Soldier or similar drink.

EDIT: I partially answered my own question. Apparently, Yoo-Hoo is a chocolate soda--I'll have to give it a try. Since most bottle collectors tend to wax nostalgic, others of you might also enjoy the sites that I visited: https://www.metv.com/lists/12-delicious-bygone-beverages-you-will-never-drink-again

SECOND EDIT: Picture of label, together with a comment I found online, indicates that I have incorrectly applied the term "soda" to the Chocolate Soldier drink. http://www.inthe70s.com/food/chocolatesoldiersoftdrink0.shtml

"Are you guys really talking about Chocolate Soldier? In grade school as a kid, my friend's dad owned the Coke bottling franchise. He had a contract to make CS every Sat morning. It was a four hour run, and would hire 6 students to package 6 bottles of CS in those use-to-be metal carriers by hand. The CS bottles were smaller size than coke bottles and jam at the end of the bottle run after being filled & capped. The jam was in the shaker/mixer unit. So, we grabbed the bottles from the capper unit. The contents were barely tan color. As I recall from 60 yrs ago, the mixture was a combo of powered milk & chocolate powder and non-carbonated water and always had sediment in the bottle. So, no one has mentioned the trick with Chocolate Soldier is to Cool, SHAKE WELL, Open, & Enjoy. YUMMY!
