Moxie (#33)

Overall Rating: 5.87 out of 10

Bottled thru Orca Beverages


150 Calories (12oz) , Sugar 37g

  • Label and Bottle Appearance: Great retro label that matches the original = 7.5

  • Color: Flat dark cola color = 7.0

  • Taste: If you have tasted Moxie in the past, you know the taste   = 5.0

  • Experience:  Not a big fan of Moxie taste, but if you grew up with it?  = 4.0

  • Sweetener: Pure Cane Sugar

Well, I think the label saids it all for Moxie “Distinctively Different” If you have had Moxie in the past, you know the taste I’m talking about. If I were to try to explain the taste, I think it would sound like a somewhat flat cola with a aftertaste of a flat Barq’s root beer. It kinda gives me the feeling of taking some type of medication bought in a 1800s drug store. I guest that it explains it being a 100+ year old brand. If you grew up drinking Moxie back in the day, I’m sure this remake would be appealing.

Afri-Cola (#32)

Overall Rating: 5.75 out of 10

MineralBurnnen AG,Classic Beverages Imports


140 Calories (12oz) , Sugar 36g

  • Label and Bottle Appearance: Know for its fashionable and unique bottle. Have to give them this one. Great shape and clean label = 8.0

  • Color: Deep cola look = 7.0

  • Taste: Flat and dull. Not sure what is so great here   = 4.0

  • Experience:  Again, really tasted like it was open for few days  = 4.0

  • Sweetener: Cane Sugar

With more than 80 years of history in Germany, Afri cola was re-introduced in the United States nationwide. Afri cola is a premium cola made with real sugar and natural flavors, featuring a bold taste that is enhanced by an extra caffeinated kick by containing twice as much caffeine as other colas, the company says. Not sure why this tasted flat to me, but could be because of the high caffeine? It’s a great know product from Germany, and maybe if you grew up drinking Afri-Cola, then you might be hooked on it. But really not a fan favorite for me.

Boylan Cane Cola (#28)

Boylan Bottling, Paterson, New Jersey

  • Label and Bottle Appearance: Smooth clear bottle. I have always liked the style and thickness of Boylans bottles. It also has embossed name and year = 8.0

  • Color: Deep cola look = 8.0

  • Taste: Decent and different cola taste   = 7.7

  • Experience: Bought the 4 pack of this one. Great treat in the middle of the day  = 7.8

Another great soda from Boylan. I have had this one many times thru the years and finally got time for the write up. I always enjoyed Boylan sodas and this is another great example of a simple and satisfying soda. The Boylan’s Cane Cola has a unique cola bite and a delightful taste as it goes down. Enjoy a bottle for that midday treat
