    Default Moxie question

    I just added a drop of maple syrup to some cola.

    Is that what Moxie tastes like?

    I thought it tasted like orange soda pop.

    I've no idea, what's Moxie?

    One of my neighbors makes maple syrup from his own trees, he produces
    only a couple gallons a year... takes 40 gllons of sap for 1 gallon of
    syrup. He makes a enough for his own use and to give some small
    bottles as gifts... just gave me some of last years crop... delicious:

    I thought Moxie was when three guys surrounded you and were going to
    lay a beating on your ass, and you rolled up your sleeves and said get

    From what I recall, not even close. It was a bit bitter more root
    beer than cola flavor I only ever had it once a long time ago. It
    has followers, but I have no idea why.

    I looked it up. I think you are waaaaay off base. Said it is bitter, not
    sweet.

    If your neighbor made his own maple syrup and gave only a few small
    bottles as gifts to friends, then why/how did your neighbor get that
    'tamper proof' cap on the bottle you show in your photo?? Just curious.

    I have a bottle purchased at a local gourmet shop very similar to the
    one you show in the photo you shared (link listed above in quoted text).
    My photo is here ---> http://oi39.tinypic.com/2h573sw.jpg <-- -
    however, the two different bottles may not hold the same volume.

    The 'other side' of the detached label from my similar bottle of maple
    syrup says, "Butternut Mountain Farm, Morrisville, Vermont, 05661" along
    with their phone numbers. It's a wee bottle of only 1.7 fl. oz. (50
    ML). The price tag was $3.99, and that's from a couple years ago or more.

    He has used old bottles for refilling. Remember, it's not a factory
    production and a couple of gallons isn't a lot. He probably had some
    bottles given to him or just what's been collected over time.

    I was wondering why Sheldon would post a pic of home made maple syrup as
    there appears no benefit to anyone or anything (except his ego). It's a
    "refilled" maple syrup bottle with no label. For all we know Sheldon
    could have removed the label himself from a "new" bottle, "invented" the
    story and posted the pic to lend it some credence. Certainly we aren't
    able to do a taste test. The pic is a waste of effort.

    Because you have no choice if you want that style bottle. That is the
    way they come, take it or leave it.

    Krypsis (FAKE name) is a total waste of protoplasm... to date you've
    not even once posted something on topic... you SICK PARANOID IGNORANT
    BASTARD!

    And that bottle does indeed have a label, it's a small clear label on
    the other side... I'm not going to publicly display the name, adress,
    and phone number of the person.

    For Kryps sake:

    New maple leaf glass bottles are readily available. Where do you think
    maple syrup producers (large or small) get the ones they use? -- by
    collecting OLD USED ones???

    Yes, Krypsis is a pseudonym and it is fake in that it bears no
    resemblance to my real name just as much as "Brooklyn" bears no
    resemblance to yours! So what's your point?

    At least I'm not paranoid enough to believe that I need to back up every
    post I make with a "proof". Your comments here prove also that you are
    the ignorant bastard here, a fact borne out by the views expressed by
    many other RFC posters.

    Frankly, who in hell wants to see a picture of a "relabeled" bottle
    with indeterminate contents? My point about the label, or more
    pointedly, its absence in the FIRST PIC you posted, is that it tells us
    nothing that we couldn't determine from your text. The pic is
    superfluous and your second pic, with half a label, is no better. Why
    post it? Does your insecurity create in you a pressing need to PROVE
    that your little tale is true? You pic doesn't manage even that much.
    For all we know, you could have printed up a dummy label and stuck it on
    the bottle yourself.

    If ever the good folks at RFC needed any proof that you are paranoid,
    these recent posts of yours are it!

    New bottles are available and with tamper proof caps (notice the ring
    attached to caps). The cap and ring go on together but when removed the
    ring stays. They come in a number of sizes. What was your point? If
    one was actually refilling an old bottle they would most likely nip off
    the old ring in the sanitation process.

    I think yours is the same size bottle. The cap is tamper proof
    because that's how most everything is packaged nowadays. The local
    folks who produce maple syrup all know each other (same as local honey
    producers) and they all use the same styles of bottles... I do know
    that this particular style bottle was used because these people
    usually use a small barrel type bottle but they said that they
    couldn't get that one at the time. The tamper proof caps are put on
    as a unit, the seal breaks when opened. These people don't sell
    their syrup, they produce only enough for their own use and some small
    amount for gifts... lots of locals around here do the same because
    they are very proud of their small operations... these folks have 150
    acres with 50 sugar maples scattered about... they got no sap this
    year due to the warm winter... they are retired and this is one of
    their hobbies. There's another neighbor right down the road from me
    that sells some of their eggs on the honor system, each egg is stamped
    with their name. The syrup bottle has their name on the other side
    but I'm not going to post their name, address, and phone number on
    usenet.

    My original point was that Sheldon could have simply written;

    "Go to your cupboard and take out a glass maple syrup container with
    maple syrup in it, gaze at it and imagine the flavour of this maple
    syrup I was given."

    That bit of text would have added just as much to the post as the
    picture of a standard maple syrup bottle containing something which we
    are assured is indeed maple syrup!

    They say a picture is worth a thousand words but, in this case,
    Sheldon's picture is just superfluous noise.
