Vintage Monday: Welch's T-Rex jars

This fun jar with a T-Rex on it was a staple in BK's grandma's kitchen.  He claims that grandma served "schwan drink" in it.  He also could not explain what that was and said only his family would know.  Anyone want to help me out here?

I made a lychee and peach smoothie in mine--3oz lychee juice, 8-9 lychees, 4-5 slices of frozen peaches and 4-5 ice cubes.  Yum!


  1. Schwan is food delivered to your door, even in the country. Mom used it a lot. Schwan's drink is from a concentrate, kind of like Kool Aid but Mom always had it on hand.

    1. thanks! knew I could count on you to provide clarification. For a long time BK kept saying "swan drink" which made even less sense :)

  2. This is cracking me up. I think I called it "swan" too. Funny.
