Whereas cola is flavored largely with an extract of the kola nut, Moxie's principal flavorant is an extract of gentian root. In the real world, gentian root is the kind of thing that 18th-century backwoodsmen resorted to in a futile attempt to treat ailments that modern medical science doesn't even recognize, things with names like like "scrumbles" and "the falling damps".
