What this country needs is plenty of Moxie
"Moxie outsells Coke"
The West coast was not a huge Moxie fan back in the day. Easterners had the advantage of a drink that has been described as a combination Dr. Pepper and cough syrup. It preceded and out sold Coke and Pepsi in the beginning, but lost market position.
How could it fail with a spiel like this:
"Contains not a drop of Medicine, Poison, Stimulant or Alcohol. But is a simple sugarcane-like plant grown near the Equator and farther south, was lately accidentally discovered by Lieut. Moxie and has proved itself to be the only harmless nerve food known that can recover brain and nervous exhaustion, loss of manhood, imbecility and helplessness. It has recovered paralysis, softening of the brain, locomotor ataxia, and insanity when caused by nervous exhaustion. It gives a durable solid strength, makes you eat voraciously, takes away the tired, sleepy, listless feeling like magic, removes fatigue from mental and physical over work at once, will not interfere with action of vegetable medicines.
You can still buy Moxie and a bunch of other odd soft drinks. Here is some information on micro bottlers around the country.
Information about Moxie, Moxie History, Moxie pictures, Moxie books, editorials about Moxie, Moxie Events, Moxie Horsemobile, Moxie Days, links to Moxie related sites, where to find Moxie Soda or bottlers and manufacturers, where Moxie is served with your food, Moxie collectibles, and more.
Here is a list of manufacturers.

PLANTATION STYLE MINT JULEP
Bubbles of fresh tasting mint in a soft drink. This one is so great! It's delicious alone, use it as a mixer or make ice cubes.
Many people who once escaped from the Soviet Union, upon tasting Leninade, have overwhelmingly remarked that it is "BETTER THAN EXPECTED"; and those who prefer vodka in their potables have been known mix it with Leninade and ice to make a COMMIE KAZE. The Marx Brothers would be so proud. But even if you're a teetotaler you can get tired of Russky Chai and Drink As Lenin Drank!
