Faygo is bringing back a favorite

Nothing says Michigan like Faygo Pop, founded in 1907 by Russian immigrants Ben and Perry Feigenson.

The first flavors of Faygo were Grape, Strawberry, and Fruit Punch. More than 50 flavors are available in 2022. New unique flavors continue to surprise us every year. The fad took off a couple of years ago with the release of Faygo Fireworks. It tasted like a Bomb Pop popsicle. The Firework Flavor caused people to sell on eBay for outrageous amounts of money. I saw some bids for over 50 dollars. Other than Faygo being from Michigan, we enjoy favorites like Vernors, Town Club, Jones Soda, Northwoods soda, Frankenmuth Root beer, Frostie’s, and a few independent companies. My favorite was always Faygo Rock and Rye. Try an ice cream float with Rock and Rye.

A BBQ place in Southfield, Arkins Sweet BBQ Pit, is making mouth-watering ribs coated with Faygo Rock and Rye. So take a moment to salute a Michigan favorite celebrating smiles for all ages. I’m sure you have a personal favorite flavor. Remember, it’s also POP, not soda.

Happy 115th Birthday, Faygo!

The Detroit beverage company pioneered unique flavors in the pop market throughout their many years. DETROIT - The only soda company brave enough to call themselves "pop" is celebrating their 115th birthday today. Faygo, the Detroit-based pop company, was originally founded by Ben and Perry Feigenson as "The Feigenson Brothers Bottling Works" in November of 1907.
