Get your taste buds in shape for the 3rd annual MOXIE tasting.
Thursday afternoon, October 11th, 4:00PM at Space # C2I-44 in the Chocolate Field.
New this year will be a chance to identify the taste. Possibly a prize for the most creative answer.:oIMG_6020.JPG

I have seen this thread the last couple of years; and I have heard about Moxie; guess it's a love it or hate it type of thing.

Don't want to crash any parties, but is this something that is "open to the public", so to speak? ;)

Also, I understand about not being allowed to sell stuff, but are "donations" allowed, to re-plenish the supply, after all...?

Might hit the spot after slaving all day over a hot swap meet!!

Hi, Yes, all are welcome. See you there. No donations asked. Don't want to offend the HERCO folks.

Besides being bottled and sold as Moxie, they also sell it by the drum. It's a red drum with yellow labels and they say SAFETY-KLEEN on them.. The only difference is while Moxie tastes like SAFETY-KLEEN it will not remove geese or crud off your parts. Ed.

You know what red drum spells backwards, don't you?

No man treats a motorcar as foolishly as he treats another human being. When the car will not go, he does not attribute its annoying behavior to sin, he does not say, "You are a wicked motorcar and I shall not give you any more petrol until you go." He attempts to find out what is wrong and set it right. – Bertrand Russel

That stuff still tastes like used motor oil to me, and I've tried it about 20 times! I even have a 6-pack in the house. Dunno why. But I do.

I know we have had the deer sausage and cheese in the past but I was thinking maybe some Corn Nuts would go with Moxie.
No body likes them but if they are there you can't help but eat them.

I like them. But my 61 year old teeth are not that fond of them anymore much. I have three crowns now. :rolleyes:

Sorry, but to the best of my knowledge, none of the Moxiemobiles made it this year.

Bill: Do you supply this stuff to Dietrich's in Kutztown, PA (www.dietrichsmeats.com</SPAN>)? We always stop there as part of our annual Hershey pilgrimage, and I'm sure I usually see it there.

Growing up (1960s Middletown, CT), I lived across the street from a farmer who had a small side business supplying social clubs with soft drinks, and as I recall, one of his specialties was Moxie.

I am not sure I've ever tried any--I'll try to watch for you next year.

I really wanted to come but I had so much trouble with my feet this year, I just didn't have the will to walk after about 3:00PM. Maybe next year!

Hershey Moxie Tasting Update
Thursday, October 11th, 4:00PM, Space C2I-44
From a rough tally, we had over 40 brave souls show up for the 2nd annual Moxie tasting on Thursday afternoon.
We observed only one lady who declined to finish her sample. At the other extreme, two young folk asked for refills.
Save the date for the 3rd annual: Thursday, October 10, 2013. Same time and place.
Folks on the first photo: Jay Wolf, Vincennes, IN, Getta Chang, Birmingham, AL, Dave Krieg, Dubuque, IA, Bill Boudway, Canandaigua, NY, Gerald Greenfield, Seattle, WA, Tom Harris, Salem, OR, Eric Miller, Los Angeles, CA, and Adrian Taylor, Seattle, WA

I'm really sorry I missed it, but I had a terrible time with my feet this year and just did not have the energy or will to make my way over.

I thought I had it timed about right to stop by this year but passed by about 45 minutres early. Was back at my space with my feet up at the proper time and couldn't convince myself to get my feet back under me.

I had Moxie about 40 years ago and liked it, tried again about 20 years ago and didn't, was looking forward to a tie breaker.
