    Faygo was and still is produced in Detroit. I believe this bottle is around 1960, although I believe this particular logo was first used in the 40's. It does not list a flavor on the bottle, it must have been on the cap. It is difficult to tell from the photo, but the logo is white and teal. It is also smaller than a typical soda bottle. It is 7 ounces instead of the typical 12. I would like to find out what flavor it was and perhaps date it better.

      Faygo bottles of this era were generic. The Faygo Shield logo was first used in 1940. Their bottles were clear and customers looked for color and cap labels to determine the flavor. Faygo is short for Feigenson Brothers Bottling. Two brothers who were bakers used cake frosting recipes for the original soda flavors (Strawberry, Grape, Fruit Punch). Later the most popular flavors were Red Pop, Root Beer, and Rock & Rye. Up until the early 60's, 7oz bottles were the standard.
