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.

Southern Plantation Georgia Cane Syrup Label
This Georgia Cane Syrup label went on a 1 pound 2 ounce can and measures 10.85” Wide x 3” High. It was grown, packed, and guaranteed by Cane Growers Co-Operative Association in Cairo, Georgia, who was really the W. B. Roddenbery Company.This was made from pure Georgia ribbon cane and “absolutely nothing else but the juice of Georgia ribbon cane.” The label is just gorgeous and the images don’t really do it justice. It features a Southern Mansion, workers harvesting the sugar cane, and a little log cabin in the woods with a black family making the syrup. I love their slogan, “When Better Syrup is Made. We Will Make It.”   We acquired these labels from a former employee who found them in the “Old Association Warehouse” in Cairo, Ga. 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 anyway. 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 and he formed the Cane Growers Co-Operative Association. W. H. Roddenbery was a brother-in-law and owned a wholesale grocery store in Cairo. He had Roddenbery package syrup for him and later the W. B. Roddenbery Company packaged syrup for companies like A & P, Blue Plate, and Kraft. He changed the labels to read “packed for” instead of “packed by”. WE GUARANTEE OUR LABELS TO BE AUTHENTIC AND AS DESCRIBED!
