I found this bottle the other day and the most I can tell is that it was machine made and us a foster-forbes product. I'm looking for what this was possibly used for and age if anyone can help that would be delightful.

That is an original Gatorade bottle from the late 1960's-70's era. Here's how it would have looked labeled (stock image aside):

Wow! Thanks for bringing back the memories of the BG time period. --Also, I remember that it tasted even better in glass.;) ..Should be a collectible in the near future if it isn't already. In any case, a belated welcome to our glassy but classy club. ..Nice pic choice Skoda!

You beat me to it Skoda! I'm ancient enough to have drunk from such a glass bottle. I'm not a jock, but I gave the product a try when it was fairly new on the market. I wanted to see if it actually quenched thirst better than plain water, and also to compare its taste to Tang, which I added to water to make a sweeter drink (calories and vitamin C) for around camp.

Hey Will, et al,

.. We also remember when H2O was free! ..To further the question, do you still have your large, orange capped Tang bottle? :) --In any case, its nothing short of true AMERICAN HISTORY.:cool:

You'll probably have to file a FOIA request before we find out either way. --Unless there's an astronaut amongst us with 1st hand knowledge. :)
