The reactions are priceless!

Nothing is more fun than watching people sample the most controversial soft drink of all time, Maine’s own Moxie. Folks all over the globe have dared to sample this polarizing treat with mixed reviews across the board, but when it happens in the state of Tennessee, it is really hysterical.

When Lauren and Ethan Preble were in "The Volenteer State", they were surpirsed to actually find Moxie soda there, so they figured why not conduct a taste test with the locals.

Much like our political divide, the results seem to be split right down the middle. You either love it or hate it. That’s why it is always entertaining to watch someone take a gulp for the first time, especially when they are from Tennessee.

Lauren's friends on TikTok had some thoughts on the video:

oh my goodness!! i’m so surprised you found it outside of maine! y’all need to come visit next year and go to the moxie festival!

Since 1982, The Moxie Festival is held on the second weekend of July in Lisbon, Maine, with three days of wicked cool events bub!
