    I miss all of you! It has been too long. :)

    I thought I would pass by and say hi as well as share one of my recent finds. For all of you that were concerned since I seemed to be missing. I am doing okay. ;) Hopefully all of you have had an amazing Spring so far. Or Fall. Depending where you are at in the world. :)

    I believe this advertising sign is from the 1920's. Maybe earlier? It is about 15 1/2 inches across and 5 1/2 inches wide. A magnet does stick to it so it appears to be steel. I am not able to find another sign like this in all the research I have done so it seems to be a rare/scarce item.

    Sweet Sixteen was bottled and made in Detroit, Michigan. I am not able to find much of any other information or history related to the company. Maybe some of you can shed some light on this.

    Thank you for looking and passing by. May all of you have an awesome remainder of the Spring and upcoming Summer. We will surely meet again. :)

      Sweet Sixteen had ACL bottles, which came out around '34 and didn't take off till the '40s?
      All I can say.

      Sweet Sixteen was a pop company created by my great grandfather (Bernard Komer) for his daughter, my grandmother (Barbara Komer Rosenbloom) for her 16th Birthday. Similar to Faygo the pop had 16 flavors.

      I don't think you are correct about the person that founded the Sweet Sixteen pop company. My wife's great father Don Simon actually started the company with his brother in-law (Steve). The name was taken from the 16 oz size of the pop. The pop company was best know for their cream soda flavor.

      I work for Barbara Rosenbloom for many years. Yes the pop was name after her by her father.

      It does not matter to me about who created this delicious pop, all I can say is, I think Sweet Sixteen Pop taste better than anything on the market today, I truly wish it was still available, whether it was Don Simmons and Steve or Bernard Komer it would be more than great if the two families got together and started this company up again and show the other guys how to make a great tasting soda pop, this was not Faygo it was better, the colder Sweet Sixteen was the better it tasted where I lived only 15 miles from Detroit it was normal to see many people walking and drinking Sweet Sixteen, those were the good old days I wish were back
