This brought such a smile to my face.. Yet another reminder that to simply walk along the well-trodden paths in life is to miss out on all the fun.

That video made me think of a soda I drank as a kid called Moxie.  Its a regional soda found in the New England area of the US (around Maine / New Hampshire).  Anyone here ever try it?  If you did, you'd remember as its a very strange soda.

edited: just got to the end where he mentioned Moxie

That video was amazing.. I've been really enjoying Boyland Black Cherry, which you can get at many grocery stores around here now in the specialty food sections. Also really enjoy Maine Root Ginger Brew... I'd spend hours in that store..

Thanks for the video mouser, that was great..

Thanks - great blog/video.
But no chocolate cream soda!  I used to live on it as a kid.
I'd also like to see the old seltzer bottles come back and be affordable.

Am I the only one who is at once fascinated, intrigued, and yet slightly appalled by the existence of this? Might as well call it the Obesity and Diabetes Hut.  :P

OK, watching more of the vid, this guy is actually a real connoisseur and I appreciate that. He's against high fructose corn syrup, and for smaller sizes. So he's contributing to the problem as little as he can, despite owning a big sugar water store. ;)

Thanx mouser.
I would love to visit the store and try so many of those, I would pass on any coffee varieties though. He makes so many good points; glass vs plastic, diet sodas, and even competition :up:

That was a very nice film!

I liked best when he was sending customers down the street to get their pepsi cheaper. I'd love to go on a shopping spree in that shop!
