I presented “The Faygo Book” program at the library in Lapeer, Michgan, recently and encountered an ingenious taste test. Patrons were challenged to taste three Faygo-infused cupcakes and to guess the flavors. Three possibilities were offered for each kind of cupcake:
Guess the Faygo Flavor
There are more than 50 Faygo flavored pops. Taste one of each cupcake to guess the flavor. To help you narrow it down, we have given you 3 choices for each cupcake.
Rock & Rye
I gave the contest winners an “F:” the best letter grade under the Faygo grading system. I gave the librarians a gold star for creativity.
Faygo and cupcakes go way back. As “The Faygo Book” recounts, Faygo got its start when Perry Feigenson, who had owned a bakery in Detroit and his brother, Ben, turned cake frosting recipes into grape, strawberry and fruit punch pop.
