Orange Refreshment Since 1916
Don't let the fresh taste fool you, Crush goes back. Way back.
In fact it was all the way back to 1916 when Clayton J. Howell partnered with Neil C. Ward to create the Orange Crush Company (you can look even farther back to find J.M. Thompson of Chicago as the original inventor of Orange Crush in 1906).
Ward was a beverage and extract chemist who perfected the process of blending ingredients to create an exclusive formula that yielded the zesty, all-natural orange flavor of Orange Crush.
Orange Crush was the first flavor but others followed. Crush was Lemon. Crush was Lime. By the late 60's Crush was Grape, Cherry and Pineapple too. In the 90's Crush was Tropical Punch and Crush was even Peach. Crush, however, was never Bacon, Butter or Crème Brulée, and thankfully, still isn't...
So why don't you grab a Crush and make some history?
