Nothing more Detroit then Faygo Pop (“Which way did he go?”) along with it’s relation to Bob-lo Island. Anybody growing up in the Wayne County area knew the mainstay products. Faygo, Vernors, Stroh’s, Wonder Bread, Coneys. Always looking forward to my next visit to Michigan to fill my cravings.


This may sound blasphemous, but a friend taught me that mixing Rock N Rye and orange juice (50/50 blend) is a rather nice drink! I call the drink EmmyJuice in their honor.

It is interesting that, as far as I know, only the Detroit area and Pittsburgh area call soft drinks “pop”. What is the connection?
