Looking for Pineapple Orange Faygo in or near the Lansing, MI area.

I recently took a trip to Alabama to visit in laws and saw Pineapple Orange Faygo in a local grocery store. I thought I had died and gone to heaven. I haven't seen this flavor in years so I bought a bunch of 3 liters to take back to Michigan. Alas my supply has run out and I'm wondering if anybody has seen this flavor up here? I'm willing to drive an hr or so to get my fix lol.

  1. Have you tried calling Faygo themselves? They can usually be very helpful in searches for their products. I'd start there.

      Nope not yet. I just found it odd that I found that flavor down there and not in Lansing since Faygo is a Michigan company. All these years I thought the flavor was discontinued. Will call them though thanks for the help = D

        Just can't get enough?

        1. re: JanPrimus

          Yes definitely have a strangelove for that particular flavor = D

          This may help you out as well:

          http://www.faygo.com/Locator.aspx

          Fill out the form and submit it, and be sure to select Pineapple Orange from the drop down menu.

          Good luck!

            The link isn't working for me. Keeps saying runtime error. Even tried the Faygo site and it shows the same thing lol. Oh well guess I'll call them when I get a chance. Thanks for the help = D

              A few months ago, when the webpage was "working", I tried using it to find a source for their products ... Faygo never replied.

              I suggest calling them.

                Just tried calling them and the call center is based in CA (National Bev). Said the call center is open to 5pm pacific time during the week but nobody answered and I was told to leave a msg. I really hate this automated crap. Give me a dang person to speak with augh. Btw it's 6:34 eastern time and I believe Cali is what 2 hrs behind so they should stiill be open. Geez Faygo get your crap together.

                1. re: Msviolatordm

                  Hmm. Let me rephrase what I meant when I said that you should call them: 313-925-1600. Call before 5PM EST. That's the number of Faygo here in Detroit. You can talk to an actual human being there.

                  Seriously: you're in East Lansing and you didn't know enough to call the Detroit HQ of Faygo instead of an 800 number?

                  I've done this myself, and yes, they'll try to help you find your flavor. I'm *not* saying that they're the best-organized outfit in the entire world...not at all. That being said, you really should have just Googled "faygo detroit phone" and gotten their number, and gone from there.

                  1. re: boagman

                    Well I called whatever number was on their website. Seriously didn't think about it. I'm working 40 hrs a week and going to school full time. I'm just going to say eff it and see if I can get Meijer to order some for me = D

                    1. re: Msviolatordm

                      As a follow-up to this, I re-checked Faygo's flavor list, and apparently, Pineapple Orange is a flavor that's only available down in Gainsville (Florida). Thus, finding it in a southern state like Alabama wouldn't be a huge surprise, but that's why it's not possible to find it around here.

                      Pity, too...I really would like to try it.

      2. Also nice to see the Faygo Original recipe bottles are HFCS free.

        I have quit most pop unless I can get it with real sugar. Nice to have some more options.

        I have actually killed all HFCS from my diet that I know off. I know some restaurants may be sneaking in a few bits on me but I can live with that.
