Moxie is a Maine-made soft drink that is tasty and unique. The official website claims it is the first carbonated soft drink ever made in America. It was initially conceived as an elixir, or health nostrum. It’s available in northern New England supermarkets and stores. It’s most popular, as you might think, in Maine.
My good friend Sandy, originally from New Hampshire, would have me bring her back six-packs of Moxie whenever I went up to Maine. My mother lived there in her later years, and I drove up many times a year.
Sandy told me she had to hide the cans in her Brooklyn house where her kids wouldn’t find them. She would savor each can, sipping it slowly and fully enjoying the happy memories that its unique flavor evoked.
Visiting the Moxie website reveals you can now order this elixer of Maine-ness online. No need to hoard and hide, but probably not as much fun.
