This family really DID win a year’s supply of Faygo

Mother and father sit on chairs as son, about 10 years old, stands facing them, showing the back of his Faygo branded shirt. A happy family.
Alan and Jennifer Yakubesan and their son Andrew won a year’s supply of Faygo in a contest that wrapped in the Detroit Tigers and WDIV-TV.
When I give my Faygo presentation, it usually includes a pop quiz. One question asks the audience to guess the prize in a particular promotion. The most popular guess, and it is wrong, is a year’s supply of Faygo. Maybe it is wishful thinking.

During the pop quiz at the Sterling Heights Public Library, this family got the giggles. They are Alan, Jennifer and Andrew Yakubesan of Sterling Heights.

Why all the mirth? This family really did win a year’s supply of Faygo and they were tickled to hear it as one of the wrong answers in the quiz. They won their pop in a Detroit Tigers contest put on by WDIV-TV. That could be a lot of pop!

Although it would have been cool to have a long Faygo truck pull up in front of their house, the prize was awarded in coupons. Did thy use up all those coupons? What do you think?

I wrote "The Faygo Book," published in October, 2018, after building up a tremendous thirst on my previous book with Wayne State University Press, "Coney Detroit." Since "The Faygo Book" came out, I have been traveling all over Michigan talking about Faygo, answering questions and hearing some wonderful stories about this great pop.
