If you're from Maine, you've heard about Moxie. Moxie was among the first mass-produced soft drinks in the United States, and it continues to be quite popular among New Englanders. It's Maine's official state soft drink, and there is an entire festival dedicated to it in Lisbon.
I made my way to Lisbon on Saturday, and participated in the annual Moxie Festival Parade alongside Lisbon Community Federal Credit Union and their award winning float. The weather didn't cooperate, but that didn't stop people from coming out. Lisbon is truly a wonderful community, and not even pouring rain was preventing them from showing their Moxie pride.
Go out and get yourself some Moxie. And remember, don't spit it out after your first sip! It takes three sips to truly appreciate what Moxie has to offer.
Where did you have your first sip of Moxie, and are you still a Moxie drinker today? Let me know!
