One Response to “Viking Beverages glass soda bottle”

  1. JK Doyle Says:

    Viking Beverages made about 20 flavors of soda, all of which used the same bottles. The sodas were sold through distribution warehouses. I remember going as a kid and getting great flavors like grape, strawberry, black cherry, lime, and grapefruit along with classics like cola, root beer, and ginger ale. I picked up this same bottle today at an antique store. A piece of my childhood reclaimed!
