Moxie Nerve Food Soda, a sweet-then-bitter concoction, made the first singing commercial jingle and released it on record in 1921.
With the voice of a popular singer, Irving Kaufman, the recording made a huge splash.
Moxie can also claim to be the first mass marketed soft drink, dating back to 1884.
Moxie was claimed to be especially effective against “paralysis, softening of the brain, nervousness, and insomnia.”
Moxie is the main ingredient in the New Englander cocktail.
