On the can, there is a picture of two mountains and lightning bolts surrounding it and the color scheme resembles that of Mountain Dew’s.

Oh, Faygo. Sweet, sweet Faygo. If you’re from Detroit (or thereabouts), you’re quite familiar with the sugary, flavor-filled, affordable, good-timey pop, especially if you were alive and sentient when your TV still had knobs, your Tigers still had Al Kaline, and your Ford still didn’t know how to talk to you. Yes, it’s been a long journey for the makers of Redpop, Rock & Rye, and Moon Mist — so here are a few things you probably didn’t know about Detroit’s original party pop.

2. The Feigensons started out as bakers, and the first three soda flavors they offered were grape, fruit punch, and strawberry — all modeled after their cake frosting.
1.Faygo was founded in 1907 by the Russian-born Feigenson brothers (pronounced Fay-gin-sin), Perry and Ben. They shortened the name to Faygo in 1921, since Feigenson didn’t fit on the labels very well.10. Of the 50+ flavors Faygo has to offer, what are the top five in the Michigan area? From one to five: Cola, Moon Mist, Orange, Redpop, and Root Beer.7. Faygo’s had some pretty memorable ads over its 107-year lifespan. The Faygo Kid is in the advertising hall of fame, and the success of the Boblo boat commercial in the 1970s prompted the company to put out a record featuring the song.

9.Nowadays, Faygo is owned by the Florida-based National Beverage Company, which also owns Shasta, Everfresh Juices, LaCroix sparking water, and Rip It energy drinks. Their NASDAQ symbol is also, quite refreshingly, FIZZ.3.

How much caffeine is in Faygo Moon Mist Blue?

Lemon oil is the essential oil derived from the lemon itself; often it has a more concentrated, clear- or pure-tasting flavor than its extract counterparts. Lemon extracts, meanwhile, are made by extracting the flavor of the ingredient into a liquid base, typically alcohol. For this recipe, you’ll want to use lemon oil; substituting extract may lead to off flavors.Popular throughout the Midwest, Blue Moon was reputedly invented in Milwaukee in the 1950s. Nostalgic fans on Chowhound lovingly described it as having a “nuclear turquoise color” and tasting “kinda fruity, but not really.” Blue Moon is not blueberry ice cream. It’s not really any sort of recognizable fruit. Blue Moon purveyors tend to keep their recipe a closely guarded secret so speculation abounds as to what gives it that unique flavor. Some swear it’s just almond extract while others say it’s nutmeg. Growing up in New England, I never experienced real Blue Moon ice cream, but it sounded an awful lot like a cherished childhood indulgence: Smurf ice cream. In a medium saucepan, whisk together cream, milk, and remaining sugar. Whisking occasionally, heat mixture over medium-low heat until bubbles begin to form along the edges of the pan, about 8 minutes. Remove from heat and add heated cream mixture to the eggs one tablespoon at a time while whisking constantly to temper the eggs. This ice cream has a very strong, distinct flavor profile and this recipe has them on display in full force. If you’d prefer a more subtle tasting ice cream, feel free to dial back on the flavorings to taste.There’s no consensus on what exactly the flavor is other than sweet and good, and I suspect different creameries throughout the Midwest have their own special formulas. On my hunt for a recipe to cook up a batch of Blue Moon ice cream at home, I discovered one on involving raspberry flavoring, lemon oil, and instant vanilla pudding that looked very promising and seemed to jive with what I remember Smurf ice cream, a marshmallow studded blue raspberryish concoction, tasted like. This is adapted from that recipe.If you asked seven-year-old me what my favorite ice cream flavor was, I would have said without hesitation: Smurf. Yes, Smurf ice cream, a magical blue, marshmallow-studded concoction that’s supposed to be some sort of cotton candy/bubble gum/blue raspberry flavor, but tastes like a sequin top hat-wearing unicorn tap dancing on a Ferris wheel—it’s that magical. As a kid in Southern Connecticut, this enchanting flavor could only be found at Sweet Claude’s in Cheshire. We didn’t often get out to Cheshire, but you can be sure that when we did, I ordered Smurf ice cream. Every. Single. Time.Set bowl over an ice bath. Let cool at room temperature for 1 hour, stirring occasionally, then cover and refrigerate for 2 more hours or up to overnight until completely chilled. Churn chilled custard according to your ice cream maker’s instructions. Transfer ice cream into a bowl or container that will hold 1 quart. Cover and freeze for at least 3 hours to fully set. Serve. Pour custard into a medium bowl and whisk in vanilla pudding mix until thoroughly incorporated. Whisk in raspberry flavoring, lemon oil, and vanilla extract until combined. Whisk in blue food coloring until desired color is reached. When you visit the site, Dotdash Meredith and its partners may store or retrieve information on your browser, mostly in the form of cookies.

Blue Moon ice cream and its Smurf counterpart are sweet, sweet, sweet and bright blue. If either of these things is a turnoff, you might leave this flavor to the kiddos and the young at heart. Anyone left standing grab a spoon and dig in!

While researching Grape-Nuts ice cream, I came across a host of other regional ice cream flavors I’d never heard of. The most intriguing among them was a magical blue ice cream called Blue Moon.
Once cream mixture and eggs have been combined, return to saucepan and heat on medium-low until the custard coats the back of a spoon or spatula and a line drawn with a finger leaves a distinct trail, 1 to 2 minutes. Mixture should register 170 to 175°F (77 to 79°C) on an instant-read thermometer; do not allow mixture to overheat.I’ll admit as a child I never really stopped to think about what might be in Smurf ice cream other than blueness, marshmallows, and love. It’s been years since I’ve had Smurf ice cream and I’ve never enjoyed a proper Blue Moon ice cream, but one bite of this homemade batch brought back a flood of memories of Smurfier days.I used Boyajian’s natural raspberry flavoring and lemon oil which you can find online or at a baking supply store. To get a vivid blue color, I recommend using gel food coloring which provides a more intense color.Ingredients : Water, high fructose corn syrup, citric acid, potassium benzoate (preservative) , modified corn starch, medium chain triglycerides, glycol a bit tight, sucrose acetate isobutyrate, natural and artificial flavors, Sucralose.

Faygo became popular outside of Michigan in the late 1960s when the company began advertising during televised Detroit Tigers games. Ads featuring the “Faygo Kid” and heartwarming jingles became instantly recognizable and very popular.

The brothers formed the Feigenson Brothers Bottling Works, and in 1920 changed the name to Feigenson Brothers Company. In a clever marketing move, “Faygo” was adopted as the brand name in 1921. They moved their growing bottle works to Gratiot Avenue in 1935, where Faygo pop is still created today.
In 1985, the Feigenson family sold the Faygo Beverage Inc. to National Beverage Company, based in Florida. National Beverage, which also owns the Shasta soda pop brand, still operates the Detroit bottling works. Many of the employees have worked for Faygo for over 30 years. Today, Faygo comes in over 30 flavors and is sold in many states east of the Mississippi River. The most popular Faygo flavor remains one of the Feigenson brothers’ earliest creations: Redpop.In 1907, Ben and Perry Feigenson started bottling lager beer, mineral water and soda water. Recent Russian immigrants to Detroit, the brothers were trained as bakers. While packaging their soda water, they began playing around with the idea of creating soft drinks based on their frosting flavors.

The brothers ran the company until the mid-1940s, when they ceded control to their sons. In the 1950s Faygo was sold only in Detroit and Michigan because it had a limited shelf life. At that time, chemists determined that impurities in the water prevented the pop from staying carbonated. A new water filtration system was installed, improving shelf life to more than a year.Their carbonated soda “pop” – nicknamed because of the sound it made when the lid popped off – was bottled in a small plant on Benton Street. The initial flavors were fruit punch, strawberry and grape, which they sold fresh from a horse-drawn wagon the day after it was made.
