|Extra info|| Excerpt from Tazewell-Orange.com|
The corporation who owned the Donald Duck Beverages line was General Beverages Incorporated of Chattanooga Tennessee. The Lime Cola Company Incorporated of Montgomery, Alabama went bankrupt in 1948, and in June of that year, pursuant to an order of the court, transferred their assets to the Lime Cola Company of Chattanooga Tennessee. In July 1952 the Lime Cola Company of Chattanooga, changed its name to General Beverages Incorporated and in November of the same year, introduced the Donald Duck Beverages line. The Donald Duck flavors were black cherry, grape, lemon lime, orange, root beer, strawberry, ginger ale, lime, cherry, cream soda, and of course the cola. The corporation had their charter revoked for non-payment of taxes in 1957. This does track with the last mention that I can find for the brand in Google Books which is in a 1959 bulletin from the North Dakota State Laboratories Department who were testing the line from one of their local bottlers. I seriously doubt that, aside from the Pascual version of the brand, they made it too far out of the 1950’s.
