    Moxie is terrible. There is a reason why you can’t find it anywhere else.  A little rum might help the taste. But why even bother. I have seen a Moxie energy drink. I bet those are yummy. Taste like DR pepper with cough medicene mix. And do other states have an offical soft drink? Weird. With a festival? Weirder.

    • Somehow I always thought that Dr Pepper was a much more appealing thirst quencher if your taste buds favored that genre( LOL…the next best thing to robitussin on the rocks) of soft drink.

    I have to chuckle every time hearing how many hate it. Out of everyone i know their is only one other that likes it like myself. Still faithfully purchase a case every other week or so :) Hated it when i tried it as a kid but later on gave it another go and loved it. If you placed 20 drinks in front of me and moxie was among them, i would choose it over the others each and every time.

    Is it just me or have they watered the taste down over the years. I have always liked Moxie and want it to have that stronger taste I remember as a kid.

  • I love Moxie.  I tried it one day when I didn’t feel good.  It helped me feel better.  Been a fan ever since.

    Leave it to Maine to name something that nasty as our official drink.  I would rather sip mud flat water.
