NORTHVILLE, MI - You can now indulge in seven different Faygo pop ice cream flavors thanks to an exclusive partnership between the long-time Detroit soda pop maker and Browndog Barlor and Restaurant. The newest flavor, Firework, just came out this week.
What may surprise you about these creations is that they don’t contain any Faygo pop in them. Faygo gives Browndog its ingredients and the ice cream maker creates the flavors to taste exactly like the corresponding pop. Browndog then puts its own spin on the flavors and makes something a little different out of them.
“Faygo gives us its flavorings and then its flavor person comes here to make sure the ice cream we created with its ingredients tastes just like the pop,” Brian Scherle, Co-Founder of Browndog told MLive. “We build it that way. It’s the flavorings, not the soda, otherwise, the ice cream would be crystally and icy instead of sweet and creamy.”
The seven flavors are:
- “Firework” (New flavor) - Vegan sorbet with fresh strawberries
- “Choc & Rye” - Rock & Rye with ribbons of chocolate fudge and chunks of brownies
- “Motown Jam” - Red Pop swirled with ribbons of chunky peanut butter
- “Citrus Mist” - Moon Mist and Faygo Orange sodas with bits of Maraschino cherries
- “Peaches & Creme” - Faygo Peach and Creme sodas with shortbread cookies
- “Groovy Grape” - Grape pop mixed with vanilla sandwich cookies
- “Unicorn Swirl” - Cotton Candy pop with pink marshmallows
The Faygo pints and scoops are available at Browndog’s two locations: downtown Northville (120 E. Main St.) and downtown Farmington (33314 Grand River Ave.). They are also available at various area grocery stores.
Each Faygo pint from Browndog is $9 or buy three, get one free through the month of August. Four flavors are available in scoops: Firework, Groovy Grape, Choc & Rye and Unicorn Swirl. The other three flavors, Motown Jam, Citrus Mist and Peaches & Creme are only available in pints.
Live out of town? You can shop online here and Browndog will ship the ice cream pints overnight in containers with dry ice.
