Original New York Seltzer is a carbonated soft drink.[1][5] It was produced from about 1981 until the early 1990s by father and son Alan and Randy Miller[6][7][8] as a non-caffeinated line of sodas featuring natural flavors with no preservatives or artificial colors. The brand was revived in mid 2015, featuring eight flavors: Root Beer, Vanilla Cream, Raspberry, Peach, Lemon & Lime, BlueBerry, Black Cherry, and Concord Grape.[9] Cola & Berry was added in 2016.[10] The original Original New York Seltzer flavors also included Orange and Strawberry, in addition to all of the above (with the exception of Concord Grape).[citation needed]

In 2017, Original New York Seltzer expanded into creating a new line of eight flavors of sparkling water, which include Grapefruit, Lime, Original, Orange, Watermelon, Lemon, Coconut and 6 Berry.[4]
