NuGrape is a brand of grape-flavored soda pop. The NuGrape brand was first bottled in 1921 and by April 1933, The National NuGrape Company was founded in Atlanta, Georgia. NuGrape was followed up by the popular Sun Crest brand of soft drinks in 1938. In 1965, the National NuGrape Company introduced Kickapoo Joy Juice, a product based on Al Capp‘s Li’l Abner comic strip. All three brands were acquired in 1968 by The Moxie Company (renamed Moxie-Monarch-NuGrape Company and later Monarch Beverage Company). In 1970, Moxie-Monarch-NuGrape discontinued domestic U.S. sales of Kickapoo Joy Juice.
In 1999, NuGrape and the Nesbitt’s line of carbonated drinks were acquired from Monarch Beverage Company in Atlanta by Big Red, Ltd. of Waco, Texas under its North American Beverages Productsdivision, which also included Nesbitt’s. The National NuGrape building still exists in Atlanta at 794 Ralph McGill Blvd., but is not open to the public.
