I quite liked the Moxie..... %-P
Had to look it up, never even heard of it. :red:
You are obviously a younger person if you don't know what Moxie is. Moxie tastes like root beer going in and then does an about face on you and turns bitter as hell. It's definitely not a kids drink and is an aquired taste for sure.
That's it . . . we're revoking your Mainiac card.
I hope I never get old.
I'm pretty sure its regional. Never seen it.
I think it's a northern New England drink . . . kind of like those bright red skinned natural casing hot dogs . . . I never see them anywhere else.
LOL! You're right on those red hot dogs! My in-laws lived in Springfield/Carrol, ME and when I visited, they'd always have them. They are strange looking.
Moxie is pretty prominent all over New England. I drink it occasionally and that is enough to remind me why I don't drink it regularly.
Moxie is great. Growing up we used to buy it in Maine while visiting relatives. Another soda that was hard to come by in southwestern CT, until recently, is mello yellow. For whatever reason they stopped selling it here for a long time.
