    Detroiters live and breathe their city and aren’t afraid to let people know. We are one of the most misunderstood wonders and cultural experiences that would have outsiders dumbfounded at how wrong they were. Our products, our people, what we have to offer, it’s almost always glossed over because media outlets ignore or only report on negative things coming out of Detroit.

    Faygo has a new flavor!

    The iconic Detroit pop company recently unveiled its new “Cotton Candy” on WDIV Detroit Channel 4.

    Apparently, the latest addition has been an idea on the table for years, yet executives were waiting on the right time to release it. During an interview with Local 4, reporters took a swig of the new drink and immediately expressed their delight at “Cotton Candy”. Anchor Rhonda Walker said the new flavor isn’t too sweet but subtly tastes like the carnival treat.

    A local brand, Faygo has been cherished by most Detroiters for its distinctly tasty drinks like “Red Pop” and “Rock & Rye”, to name a few. Whether a new spin on classics like “Cola” or “Orange” or something entirely unique, the pop company has become a local household name since it started in 1907.

    Alas, residents have one new way to quench their thirst and cool down just in time for summer.
