We got tagged in a post by our homie Bozo about an article that Thrillist.com just published. In this new story, they ask three Juggalos to rank 33 different flavors from worst to best! That’s a pretty extensive study!
And since we’re Faygoluvers, we are basically required to post stories about Faygo. What do you think takes the Number 1 spot? Which flavor tastes like when you get soap in your mouth? Check out an excerpt below:
If you’re from the Detroit area, Faygo — the local pop known for flavors like Rock N’ Rye, Redpop, and Moon Mist — just might be your favorite soda. And no one loves Faygo more than Juggalos and Juggalettes, the crazed face-painted fans of the hardcore hip-hop duo Insane Clown Posse (known as ICP).
The two members of ICP, Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope, are Detroit natives and longtime Faygo fans. As legend has it, at a concert early in ICP’s career, Violent J hurled a 2-liter bottle at some hecklers, spraying soda across the crowd. And thereafter, Faygo became the unofficial official beverage of Juggalos and Juggalettes everywhere.
Now, an ICP concert ain’t an ICP concert without enough “Faygo Showers” to drench an entire audience. Every Juggalo knows the feeling of getting root beer in their hair or a 2-liter bottle to the face. Seriously. If you don’t love Faygo, you can’t be a Juggalo.
So we roped three Juggalos into ranking every Faygo flavor we could get our hands on. Michael Chelune, Michael Fratelli, and Jesse Bowman, who will hereafter be referred to by their Juggalo names: Mikey, G-Mike, and J Breezy, taste-tested 33 bottles of Faygo (21 sugary flavors, plus 12 diet versions). They rated each on a scale of one to 10 based on tastiness and mouthfeel. Whoop whoop!
