These crates date back to the very begining of CHEERWINE and were used for several decades. They are a true part of CHEERWINE history and can still be found today in antique shops & flea markets throughout North Caolina.
WOW!! Now this is a true oldie. This is the very first paper carton used by Cheerwine. It is not in perfect condition, however I would buy 10 of these tomorrow in this same shape. They are just a neat item to have. If you remember seeing this classic, I would love to hear from you.
Here is another great oldie! This carton is dated around the same time and I was lucky to find it in mint condition. It is neat to see CHEERWINE grow!
These are some neat CHEERWINE syrup jugs that I bought from my friend Tommy in Salisbury. Each one reflects a different era and I have them in different styles.
I think we should form a CHEERWINE fan club and have our weekly meetings at Hap's!!
It sure is neat to see the cartons change over the years. CHEERWINE has done a fantastic job of keeping them colorful for collecting.
WELCOME TO HAP'S GRILL, IN THE HEART OF DOWNTOWN SALISBURY, NC. HAP'S IS LOCATED ON MAIN STREET AND IS A MUST WHEN YOU VISIT HISTORIC SALISBURY. ICE COLD CHEERWINE IS SERVED HERE DAILY, AND YOU NEVER KNOW WHO YOU MAY RUN INTO. LET'S GO BACK TO THOSE TWISTING YEARS AND REMEMBER SOME OF THESE GREAT CHEERWINE OLDIES.
What a great day this was. As CHEERWINE'S #1 Fan, this was a true honor. Meeting Mr. Ritchie and receiving one of the very first retro cartons signed and presented to me for my collection. This family has done so many great things for Rowan County and have given North Carolina a southern treasure to forever be proud of. Click the icon below to see more neat cartons & crates.
This guy has it made!! A Hap's hotdog in one hand and a CHEERWINE in the other. The jug on the right is another great addition to my collection.
LET'S TWIST AGAIN....
The jug on the left is older than the one on the right. As you can see the "Health And Pleasure" slogan was printed on it and it does not have the wings on the oval. The one on the right dates back to the 60's and I recently purchased an orginal case of these that are in excellent condtiion. I also just added an amber jug with a red label that I hope to add to my page soon.
