Think you’d never see your favorite childhood soda again? Not so. Companies like Coca-Cola have their fingers crossed that adult-you is just like childhood-you, but with more disposable income to fight off slumping soft drink sales.
This year, we’ve seen a slew of soda brands return from the grave—some with long legacies and some who were just a flash in the pan. Here are six of 2015’s beverage comebacks we found particularly noteworthy...
1. Original New York Seltzer
The return of sodas from the ’80s and ’90s has been a surprisingly hot topic in 2015, and kicking off the trend was Original New York Seltzer. The flavored seltzer brand that was first founded in 1981, ironically in California, was extremely popular throughout the ’80s, hitting hard times about a decade later. But, this past May, the brand rebooted and now has six flavors available in stores nationwide.
