Ho-Made Pickle Label

SKU: ULB1130 $0.85 USD

Historic Overview

This 3.6” Wide x 2” High vintage label for Ho-Made Sweet Pickles went on a 1 pint, 6 ounce jar and dates to the 1950s. The pickles were packed by Chicago Pickle Company of Redgranite, Wisconsin. The “Ho” was for Home Made not the popular phrase of today.

The Chicago Pickle Company, also known as “Chipico” began making kosher pickles in 1925 and was started by Irving Olevsky. The company’s pickles were cured in barrels in garlic brine under refrigeration, never cooked, which produces the crisp pickle found in many delis.

In 1984 the company was purchased by Vienna Beef LTD Corporation. This privately held corporation began in 1893 when they introduced the Vienna Chicago-style hot dog at the Chicago Worlds Fair. This is the official hotdog used in the famous Chicago dog and the bright green relish that goes on it is made by The Chicago Pickle Company. The pickle company has manufacturing plants in Florida, California, and Michigan.

Happy Kids Georgia Peanut Butter Shield Label
This Happy Kids Peanut Butter shield label is from the W.B. Roddenbery Co. in Cairo, Georgia. By the way, if you're from South Georgia that's pronounced “Kay_Row”. The label dates back to 1935 and has an image of a typical “Family of Four.”  This was the newer label and it stressed that it was made from “Carefully Selected Radiant Ray Roasted Peanuts”. The label went on an 8 oz. jar and measures 1.75" Wide x 2.37” High in near mint condition. Dr. Seaborn Anderson Roddenbery started his medicine practice in 1862 in a horse-drawn buggy. In the same year he purchased a farm and sold open kettle sugar cane syrup from his medical buggy as he made his rounds. By 1867 he had an office and a general store that sold syrup from large cypress barrels, and people would bring their own jars and fill them with his cane syrup. Within five more years he had acquired 1000 acres and started to reduce his medicine practice, since he claimed 90% of his patients didn’t pay him. In 1889 Roddenbery marketed the first pure Georgia cane syrup as "Roddenbery's Old Plantation Molasses." Around 1920 the business became known as the W. B. Roddenbery Company. It was 1934 when the company expanded their product line to include peanut butter in 1936 they added pickles. They continued expanding their products adding boiled peanuts, watermelons, and even cigars under a variety of labels. By 1986, the company was producing 45 kinds of pickles, 12 types of syrups, 4 varieties of peanut butter, and millions of boiled peanuts. In 1993 Dallas-based Dean Foods purchased the W. R. Roddenbery Company and about ten years later they closed the Cairo facilities.   WE GUARANTEE OUR LABELS TO BE AUTHENTIC AND AS DESCRIBED!
