What on earth is Moxie? What does it taste like?
 
2012-04-29 04:02:28 PM  
I hope that's not a picture of said teenager.

It's soda with a sort of bitter/peppery aftertaste.

It tastes kind of like bitter sarsaparilla or some sort of sweet and bitter patent medicine (which it, at one point, was).

An article about a logo contest winner and they do not have a picture of the logo, or the contest winner.

It's just a soda.

Getting passionate enough about a soda to say "love" or "hate," much less hold a festival in its honor, is ... well, pathetic.

Friend is a huge Moxie addict. She let me sample some poolside whille at a motel.

I could take it a mouthful at a time, and the smell of chlorine helped keep it down.

Is this about Penn Jillette's daughter?

If that's their logo in TFA then they definitely needed a redesign.
 
2012-04-29 06:06:11 PM  
So they got a new logo for the cost of $100 and a t-shirt? Well-played, Moxie.

It's like someone took a crap in your mouth.

That teenager has Moxie.

Sugar water.

...only with bubbles.

For those of us who just found out about Moxie, do we fall in the love it or hate it category? I'm confused

2012-04-29 06:09:09 PM  
You love it or you hate it.

Sounds like the more likely third category: we've never heard of it.
 
2012-04-29 06:13:51 PM  
The logo contest was for the festival, not for the brand logo itself.

There's a party in my mouth and everyone's throwing up.

Came for the 'Bored of the Rings' reference. Very surprised to find one.
 
2012-04-29 06:15:36 PM  
I don't hate Moxie per se, but I did try a bottle, and it just wasn't to my liking. Like a combination of liquid black licorice flavoring and Valvoline.
 
2012-04-29 06:15:44 PM  
I was hoping it would be this Moxy Link

Moxies tastes like drinking root beer that has been sitting in your grandfather's old leather shoes for a couple of days.

Where could a curious Chicagoan obtain some Moxie?
 
2012-04-29 06:19:53 PM  
I was stationed in Bath Maine for a year in 1980 and fell in love with the stuff.

It's a weird kind of soda. Bitter, and in my memory it reminds me of a carbonated jagermeister, but with a sweet aftertaste.

It went really well with a crab sammich.

Moxie is rarely found in California. I've tried it twice. I did not like it. I understand people enjoy various flavors; I don't like Heath candy bars either. My tongue reacted similarly from the non-sweet tang each has. I'm glad I can find things I like, and I have nice thoughts for people finding stuff they enjoy (even if I find it unpalatable).
 
2012-04-29 06:20:22 PM  
I don't love it.

Assertiveness training.
 
2012-04-29 06:22:05 PM  
But more importantly, is it better or worse than that Jones soda?
 
2012-04-29 06:22:17 PM  
I actually like Moxie. It's like a strong birch/root beer. Not for everyone.

(I live in Vermont, one of the few states where you can buy it in supermarkets.)

You can try ordering a hot dog with ketchup, for starters
 
2012-04-29 06:23:00 PM  
Moxie is awful, Diet Moxie tastes the way I'd imagine death tastes like.

Says you. I would go to a soda festival if it was for Boylan's or Mountain Dew. Their stuff is delicious.

After all, there are wine festivals and no one bats an eye. So, why not one for soda? Not everyone on the planet drinks alcoholic drinks.

/have one of those supertaster tongues
//makes alcoholic drinks taste way too bitter to take

I lived in Maine and Vermont for years. Moxie is big. There is only one thing worse tasting than Moxie - Diet Moxie. It is really indescribable but I am enjoying the descriptions. My wife loves the stuff.

i love the stuff--used to find it at bev-mo in california--there is a pop shop in suburbs of los angeles that carries it, and another pop shop in one of the phoenix suburbs. you can order it on line as well--i think the shipping kills you though.

chookbillion: What on earth is Moxie? What does it taste like?


I haven't had it in a while, but I believe that it taste's like Dr Peppers retarded cousin that should have died in its crib years ago.

Maine has an official state soft drink?

Imagine the cheapest, nastiest store-brand cola you can buy.

Add the flavor of that nasty powdery rubbery bubble gum you get at Halloween that no one over the age of ten willingly puts in their mouth, and a heaping helping of spit.

Voila, you have Moxie.

Sadness with the slight aftertaste of unemployment.

//Matches well with Lisbon

Moxie is good if you like the taste of roofing tar.

Actually, I never meant to imply that it tastes as good as roofing tar. Roofing tar tastes much better.
