I was watching the Treehouse of Horror ep of Simpsons tonight, and the last segment they did was a flashback to the 1930’s and there was a scene where Police Chief Wiggum was drinking a Moxie (I assume, it had an orange label on it and some sort of handwriting) along with the other police officiers.

My friend Brian sent me two cans of this back in June along with some Diet Moxie. Now I know this Diet Hires has to be expired by now but I had some with pizza tonight for dinner and it was still pretty darn good! Better than diet A&W (which used to be my favorite).

{this is back from June. Whoops}

This apple soda that I used to love buying at Walgreens all the time (but in 20 oz) years ago taste better at room temperature now.

I got a box from my friend Brian today, a box of Diet Moxie (since I’m on a … diet right now).

I haven’t tried it yet. Brian has to cut the fridgepacks in half together due to fridgepacks being awkwardkly shaped.

It’s a few days out of date, so it tastes like I dunno, an anise flavored root beer. I kinda like it more than regular Moxie.

he first time I had this stuff in the summer of 2003 I hated it. It tasted like you know those push popcicles in the narrow plastic bags? Yeah, that’s what it tasted like. I was curious to see if it had changed or I have changed since then so I got one out of the machine at Wal Mart.

It’s better than I remember, but not something I’d drink all the time. In some areas, its a permanent fixture for Pepsi, but just in 20 oz. Some places, it only comes back during the Summer.

And there was absolutely no way I was going to put that orange on the counter. No.

This was one of the drinks my friend Gary gave me when he drove through town two weeks ago.

As much as I love Gary as a friend, I didn’t like this. I thought it was way too sweet. Sorry.

Man, I’ve been meaning to upload this picture since January 31st.

I did some website work for my friend Brian, and I got some Squirt in exchange for it. Squirt isn’t available in my parts. A bottler just doesn’t want to deal with it I guess.

I haven’t had Squit since a trip to Alaska to see family when I was 13. I had forgotten what it tasted like. It’s really good. It’s like fresca but not diet.

Whenever I get a special soda in, I just put it in the freezer for a few minutes. If I put it in the fridge in the fridgepack I reuse it may run the risk of somebody drinking it.

Check out the creepy roll o’ ground beef behind it. Wal Mart sells those and they look SO creepy and nasty!

The Cherry RC taste like what it is — Cherry Cola.

This was one of the sodas >Gary brought for me when he came to visit me earlier this week.

Gary sent me this soda, and I guess its a New England soda. I wanted a cold drink quick so I put it in the freezer, but I left it in there for too long, so it was like a slushy.

It was good though. Especially since there is a lack of blue sodas now. (You can’t get blue nehi out in my parts anymore, and Pepsi Blue went by the wayside in 2003,early 2004)
