Long Description:
Faygo or Faygo Pop is a soft drink brand headquartered in Detroit, Michigan. It is distributed in the Midwest, Mid-Atlantic, and Central Southern regions of the United States. Faygo's products are notably less expensive than more widely distributed brands, such as Coca-Cola and Pepsi products. Faygo can be found throughout the United States and in over 50 flavors. See the list below!

Faygo started off as the Feigenson Brothers Bottling Works. Formed in November 1907 by Russian immigrants Ben and Perry Feigenson.

The original flavors of Faygo, fruit punch, strawberry, and grape were based on cake frosting recipes used by the Feigensons in Russia.

Throughout the 20th century, Faygo steadily increased its production line. Faygo is credited with the spreading of the word "pop" instead of "soda" to mean "soft drink" in the Midwest.
