It was a very fizzy soda water in several fruit flavors, which was very popular about 1987, but disappeared soon after.

I had forgot all about this until today I was thinking about water and something unclogged my memory and I remembered this wonderful drink as a kid. I would walk a half a mile to the store for this awesome drink. The blueberry and rasberry were off the hook!!! I wish they would bring this drink back.

I just found one of my old Raspberry Zeltzer Seltzer bottle caps while I was metal detecting in the alleyway behind my parents house.

We used to go to the little store in town on the weekend between junior & senior church camp and load up on zeltzer seltzer, Doritos, and bean dip and stay up late. It was the only time boys and girls weren't split. Good times...

I was just trying to explain to my 6-year-old what a Zeltzer Seltzer was. There really was nothing that compared. Blueberry and raspberry were the best! I worked for a convenience store after school and swear I spent most of my income on those darn bottles!

I wish they would bring back zelters seltzer. To this day I look in the stores hopeing that one day I will see it again. The rasberry and strawberry was awsome.

I often wondered what happeded to the good old zeltzer seltzer. Tried the New York Seltzer but no comparison. The peach was to die for. I wish they would bring it back. It was better than anything they have to drink today.

I have an old "Rockin' America Top 30 Countdown with Scott Shannon" radio show from 1987 with a Zeltzer Seltzer ad spot! Lorenzo Music (better known as the voice of the animated Garfield) did the voiceover, most of it in Pig Latin! Good stuff.

Man I think about it alot! I too wish so bad they would bring it back. Why is it they always stop making the good stuff!? I used to walk to a local store late at night and spend every penny I could scrounge up on those scrumptious little bottles! God I miss the good ol days

I so miss Zeltzer and New York Selzter. Brings a tear to my eye when I think of them.

I would so buy this if they still had it. I bet if they brought it back, this generation of high schoolers would buy it like crazy. Then they could reminice on it in another 20 years.

I used to love this stuff while playing video games at 7-11. Who can we write to to bring it back.

I bought a bottle of peach Zeltzer Seltzer 7/3/1987 in Lodi, CA, on a trip to Disneyland with my buddy, at age 22. Being a packrat, I saved the bottle as a souvenier. I still have it, 22 years later!

Oops. I see that I misspelled souvenir. Don't bother commenting on that. I already noticed it.

Well, it was more like everyday at band practice... I would drive up to the convenience store before practice and get a Peach Zeltzer Seltzer. Oh, if I could get just one more... mmmmm.

I loved these as I see many of you did as well. This brings back memories of my childhood. I say we need to petition Anhueser Busch to bring back this favorite. I don’t know if it would do any good but it’s worth it to me. I you guys want to sign ill do the leg work! LOL!

Thought this was the best soda ever...till I found out who made it.

My cousin used to spike it with rum before we went to church.

The blueberry was the best. I'd love to join a group to petition the return of zelzer selzer.

Great stuff. I was addicted to peach. It would be a great for someone (AB?)to do a temporary production and ad campaign. It would probably fade again, but would sell like crazy for a while. I'd almost be afraid, though, that it wouldn't be a good as I remember. Maybe it's just better as a great memory.

I usse to work for Anhueser Busch in Detroit, we were moving many cases and lots of Eagle Snacks, many of these products AB Inc never took seriously and were coroparte write offs. AB Inc was even a major pioneer in bottle waters. I remember selling 250 cases of water to this little gas station in New Haven Mi. This was during a time nobody in Michigan sold water! How much have times changed!

A hot summer day, walk down to the little store below my house. Mom and Pops gave me a couple bucks. Buy a Black Cherry Zeltzer Selzer and sit in front of the CONGO arcade machine. That was life.

I remember Busch Gardens having this available when I was a kid in high school in the late 80's. It was made by Anhueser Busch. Blueberry was the best.
