A Bitter Taste

On one of our many trips to Maine over the past 8 years, I discovered *Moxie* soda. It's a bitter soda with a taste that some people might consider unpleasant. DH ordered one at our favorite roadside hot dog stand, Flo's. I loved it instantly.

Recently I have become aware of the fact that I love bitter foods.... and therefore reminded of the Angostura Bitters meets Root Beer romance that is Moxie.

In fact there are many foods which I revere that would be considered bitter.
Grapefruit, strong Coffee, Coffee Ice Cream, dark Chocolate, pretty much any vegetable in the Brassicaceae family...Arugula, Broccoli Rabe (Rapini), Cauliflower, Turnips...also Tonic Water, Endive, Dandelion, Radicchio and Artichokes....
