Faygo - Sunday 9/14/2008
What? Doesn't everyone take her groceries out to the yard for a photo shoot?
OneL has never heard of Faygo. Never heard of Faygo!??
I guess it was a regional thing. It was and is bottled in Detroit. Maybe that's why I haven't seen it in years. It's being sold at BevMo stores in California as a novelty.
Faygo Redpop, the orignial Redpop. Once my beverage of choice. I remember sitting on the basement stairs with Anabahabek talking about the elections. We both decided on Hubert Humphrey, so I guess you could say I've been a Democrat since I was seven years old.
Faygo Cream Soda. A little rarer than some flavors. I remember it being a special thing to walk to a little neighborhood store from my Grandma B's house in Huntington, Indiana to buy a pop. I vividly recall tilting my head back and swigging as I barefooted it back to her house on the hot sidewalk.
Faygo Rock & Rye. It says "Cream Cola" on the bottle. I don't remember having this, but then I've never been a huge cola fan. Cream cola? I'll let you know.
Faygo Orange. Was it Faygo Orange or Nehi Orange I fed to a pony in Kentucky when we were on vacation? You got to ride the pony and you could buy it a drink after. Quaint.
Anabahabek and I bucked the cola-as-a-mature-drink trend and sipped orange soda all through high school. Rebel, rebel... Sing it girls!
Faygo Grape. I remember reaching down into the icy water of the old fashioned cooler at the back of Goss's Grocery at Big Lake to fetch a cold one. Everything tasted better after a swim in the lake.
