Faygo: Detroit's one true pop

Lots of cities have favorite sons, but Detroit has a favorite pop—the origins of which go back 111 years. Now, Joe Grimm, MSU journalism professor, brings its vibrant tale to life in The Faygo Book.

“I was drawn by the many colors of Faygo and the commercials with cartoons, celebrities and songs from my youth,” Grimm said. One such tune, Remember When You Were a Kid? jumped on music charts back in the day. Its popularity led the Spartan Marching Band to add the catchy melody to its repertoire.
