These two soft drinks were produced by The Meredith Bottling Company of Towanda, PA. I think that the Dr. Swett's Root Beer was an Eastern Company that contracted local bottlers to prepare its product.

I'm not sure about the Pop-Pop brand..if it was a local or a regional product, as Dr. Swett's was.

Both drinks recall the days when local bottlers freshly prepared such soft drinks, appealing to the local palate. And though Dr. Swett's used dextrose (corn sugar) as a sweetener, it still beats the contemporary dominant sweetener, High Fructose Corn Syrup. Well, the Pop-Pop, in this issue, anyway, used cane and corn sugars as sweeteners.

Both of these products as pictured, came in 10 ounce bottles.
