The Faygo Book!

 

The Faygo Book is a beautifully designed and well-written history of Faygo, a brand of pop in Detroit.

Started in 1907 by two Russian brothers, Ben and Perry Feigenson, Faygo became an instant and enduring success. In 1921, the Feigenson Brothers Bottling Works shortened their name to Faygo.

 

Faygo Bottling Plant (3579 Gratiot Ave, Detroit)

 

The Faygo Bottling Plant still stands today at 3579 Gratiot Avenue, Detroit, a few miles down the street from Better Made Potato Chips.

Mr. Grimm’s book is filled with many delightful factoids and insights about the pop that quenched a thousand thirsts.
