Proud Moxie lovers will tell you that Moxie is the oldest carbonated beverage continuously on the market today 124 years as a soda.  Originally sold as a tonic Moxie is said to cure just about anything that ails you. Moxie's rich history as a medicinal cure-all spans to its current-day infamous reputation, with the tag line "distinctively different".
