Place of Origin

Maker Squirt Co.

Maker Details Squirt was created by Herb Bishop in 1938, after experimenting with a similar citrus drink, Citrus Club. He created a new, carbonated drink which required less fruit juice and less sugar. Bishop declared that it was the "freshest, most exciting taste in the marketplace". The product received its name because the drink was claimed to "squirt" into one's mouth like a freshly squeezed grapefruit.
