Spotted 8oz limited edition Faygo 6 packs at Big Lots. $1.99. Grape, Orange, and some sort of Diet Chocolate.

glass. They look similar to 8oz angle bottle Dr Pepper bottles, but slightly narrower.

Will Faygo ever bring back its regular "full sugar" version of its Raspberry Cream Soda? Only the diet version has been available for the past several years. What do we have to do to get a raspberry cream soda in the non-diet form?

i know that i read an article in the free press a couple years ago and they said that faygo was really focusing their attention on their diet sodas. diet raspberry creme is great.

they did bring back their cherry cola, which had been gone for several years. i suppose calling faygo couldn't help?!

I called, e-mailed, and wrote Faygo only to get the same response: "Our flavorists appreciate your comments; however the full sugar version of raspberry cream soda is unavaialble due to lack of sales."

In other words, they're never bringing back my favorite beverage.

I can't drink diet. It's just not enjoyable for my taste buds LOL

Not sure if you are aware of it but Faygo is owned by National Beverage who also owns
Shasta. Shasta does make a regular Raspberry Creme soda which I can purchase at my local grocery store in Minnesota.

Back on the original topic...

Just picked up 6-packs of Faygo in 8oz glass at the Big Lots in Bolingbrook IL. They had Kiwi Strawberry, Pineapple Orange, Diet Chocolate Creme and Diet Redpop. I wiped out their Diet Chocolate Creme (three 6-packs) but they have more of the others.

These are really good for what I always thought was a cheap generic soda.

The collector 8oz bottle six-packs of Faygo sodas are still floating around Big Lots. I've been hitting stores all over south Texas and and I've found Red Pop, Kiwi Strawberry, Pineapple Orange, Grape and Orange Creme. The Faygo website doesn't even mention that they have anything in this size.

Hey RedCreme,

Since you're clearly a red creme fan, I'm curious as to what you think of Redpop? I know it's hardly like any traditional red creme soda, but it definitely borders on a red creme/strawberry combination. Just wondering.

SEV...

I am a big fan of Redpop and Rock 'N' Rye. Both are unique flavors that I don't think have any exact rivals (Cream Cola anyone?). I used to vacation up near Cadillac MI when I was growing up and only got Faygo for 2 weeks of the year. Now I can get it all the time in Chicago, even in 8oz and 16oz glass thanks to Big Lots. I've got a huge stash of Faygo glass right now.

Hey, I just thought of this...I wonder what would happen if I mixed them together? Hmmmm....Strawberry Cream Cola.

I think I like Vanilla Coke better than Faygo Rock & Rye. I like Kroger Big K Red Cream better as a cream soda. But, I've also had worse.
