Moxie Soft Drink - Maine's Official Soft Drink

Moxie is a brand of carbonated beverage that is among the first mass-produced soft drinks in the United States. It was created around 1876 by Augustin Thompson as a patent medicine called "Moxie Nerve Food" and was produced in Lowell, Massachusetts. The sweet soda is similar to root beer, with a bitter aftertaste. It is flavored with gentian root extract, an extremely bitter substance commonly used in herbal medicine.

Moxie was designated the official soft drink of Maine on May 10, 2005. It continues to be regionally popular today, particularly in New England states. It was previously produced by the Moxie Beverage Company of Bedford, New Hampshire until Moxie was purchased by The Coca-Cola Company in 2018. You either love it or hate it - there's no in-between.

The name has become the word "moxie" in American English, a noun meaning energy, determination, and spunk.

@BACKin15 Somewhere in my archive of puzzles is the moxie sheet music cover. There are lots to scroll through, somewhere around 8000 of them dating back to 2008.

My pleasure @jerrys

My Dad loved Moxie, as well. We kids? Not a one. Unlike Coke, Pepsi, ginger ale, orange or grape soda, he could always count on findng a cold Moxie in the fridge.

Thanks for sharing. How fortunate were you to acquire the record and the sheet music? I'd love to see you upload puzzles of your finds sometime.

@BACKin15 Thanks!! I remember its taste very well! I was one how liked it.

Over the years in my myriad collections I acquired the Edison Diamond Disk record of the Moxie song with an instrumental one-step on the A side and a singer crooning it on the B side. I later found and acquired the sheet music for it. The cover featured the rare promotional delivery truck built on a Rolls Royce chassis in the form of a large white horse with the delivery guy mounted on the saddle with controls in saddle stirrups and a steering wheel on the saddle cantle. I saw this once in Greenfield, MA when I was a youngster. Really cool memories and memorabilia.
