Polly's Soda Pop - another American Classic

Polly's Soda Pop bottle (back)Polly's Soda Pop bottle (front)Back when the Baby Boom Boys were growing up with their Chucks, Midwestern America had an alternative to the usual Coke and Pepsi. After a hot, vigorous day of fun and games, nothing tasted better than a cold bottle of soda pop. For some, that meant Polly's Soda Pop. As one can tell from the bottle, even Polly had a sip.

The Independence Bottling Company of Independence, Jackson County, Missouri, USA bottled and marketed Polly's Soda Pop until July 1967. I have had those who ask, "Did it taste like birds?" Well, it came in a variety of soda pop flavors. The bottle cap indicated the flavor.

One of the downfalls of the company was that empty bottles cost 10 each, yet the bottle deposit was 2. A lot of people didn't return the bottles. Empty Polly's Soda Pop bottles are reportedly worth $15.00 each... much more now than when they were in production!
