A: Dr. Kaufmann medicated soap is formulated with sulfur and zinc oxide to help relieve a variety of minor skin problems. You’ll find the bar soap not far from you at Tuxedo Pharmacy, 164 W. Wieuca Road, Atlanta, 404-255-3022. Each bar sells for $6.29. Call to make sure that the store has received the soap before you go.

Q: Can I find Moxie Original Elixir near me? I would like to buy 12 bottles for my book club as we are reading an Elizabeth Strout book, and she talks about the soda. Ordering it online makes it horribly expensive. Thanks in advance. Liz Mynatt, Alpharetta
A: Since 2005, Moxie, boasting a slightly bitter edge, has been recognized as the official soft drink of Maine. It’s not surprising when you consider that Moxie creator Augustin Thompson comes from Maine. Strout also was born there, and it’s the setting for her popular Olive Kitteridge collection. I realize that this isn’t exactly in your neighborhood, but David’s Produce and Country Store, 3561 Lavista Road, Decatur, 404-325-0709 is worth the drive, and it’s a reliable source for a wide variety of vintage sodas, including Moxie. You can get 12-ounce glass bottles of Moxie for $2.25 each. And don’t be surprised if you come home with a freshly baked cake for your book club. David’s offers a selection of Southern favorites that are hard to ignore.
