     NuGrape was first bottled in 1921. Nu- Icy flavors appeared on the market shortly after. The National NuGrape Company of Atlanta, Georgia, was organized in April 1933 to continue the sale of these product's to the nation's soft drink bottlers. 

     The Sun Crest line was added in 1938. Nu Grape produced a few trays in the 1920s, interesting bottles, and a nice group of tin signs and thermometers, but the best NuGrape advertising took the form of calendars dating from the 1920s through the 1950s.
