Happy Birthday Faygo
100 years ago (well, 100 years ago on Sunday), the Feigenson Brothers Bottling Works was founded. This company would become Faygo in the 1930s, but still be considered a Detroit and Michigan institution.
Newspaper article from Toledo Blade (November 2, 2007)
For better or worse, the Faygo company is credited with spreading the usage of the word "pop" in the Midwest instead of "soda", used on the east and west coasts.
