Original New York Seltzer is a carbonated soft drink.[1][3] It was produced from about 1981 until the early 1990s by father and son Alan and Randy Miller[4][5][6] as a non-caffeinated line of sodas that were claimed to be made from natural flavors and colors. The brand was revived in mid 2015, featuring six flavors: Root Beer, Vanilla Cream, Raspberry, Peach, Lemon & Lime, and Black Cherry.[7]

Original New York Seltzer was made in flavors including Black Cherry, Raspberry, Peach, Root Beer, Vanilla Cream, Strawberry, Lemon & Lime, Orange, Blueberry, and Cola & Berry.[citation needed]
