"With a 107-year record of pop innovation, Faygo fans have come to expect new flavors that are bold and unique," said Al Chittaro, executive vice president of Faygo Beverages, Inc. "Cotton Candy was driven by consumers as it was the most requested flavor in Faygo history, and fans are already voicing rave reviews for Faygo Cotton Candy. Our partnership with another celebrated Detroit brand, Detroit Bikes, is a great way to celebrate the launch of Cotton Candy with our loyal fans."
Faygo said its Cotton Candy pop joins more than 60 flavors in its beverage line. Cotton Candy is currently available in 24-ounce and 2-liter bottles throughout the Midwest and in Faygo's online Pop Shop, and will be rolled out in other markets throughout the nation.
