In 1911, Clayton J. Howel, president and founder of the Orange Crush Company, partnered with Neil C. Ward. Ward made the recipe for Orange Crush. Crush was first premiered as Ward’s Orange Crush. Originally, Orange Crush included orange pulp in the bottles, giving it a “fresh squeezed” illusion even though the pulp was added rather than remaining from squeezed oranges. Pulp has not been in the bottles for decades.
