Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow, was I surprised! I'll start by being honest, I expected to hate this, as I can't stand the taste of regular Alka-Seltzer. Apparently I had an expression of disgust on my face as I first tasted it, but it soon faded away to complete shock. It was pleasant tasting and very refreshing! I actually enjoyed drinking it! I loved the Orange Flavor! It is also effective, relieved my head and body aches, I was also able to breathe through my nose! I almost felt human again! I will definitely choose this in the future, over Regular Alka-Seltzer and competitors nasty tasting cold syrups. Being sick is bad enough, I don't want medicine that makes me gag too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing cold medication Believe it or not, I was suffering a cold and using some cold pill to try to muster through my day, the Alka seltzer came in on one of my worse days of my cold. After one dose of two tablets in water, a minute later it’s done fizzing and was ready to go. It was not what I imagined, it had great orange taste not overpowering at all..and within 30 minutes I actually felt a bit better,so it definitely works. My nose was clear and my throat felt better. It’s definitely a great cold medicine I truly recommend it!! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Yummy!! Yummy isn't something you would think of when it comes to cold medicine, but this actually taste really good. I have always trusted the Alka Seltzer brand but some of them don't taste so great. This however I wouldn't make taking when I'm sick. I love the cold water bubbly feeling going down my sore throat. It actually soothes the pain and the hint of orange zest just makes it that much better. I took it as instructed and it did start to make me feel better. It works very well and would buy again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes me feel so much better Recently everyone in the house got sick. Well except for my husband. I felt awful and had two sick toddlers to also take care of I use regular alka seltzer all the time and it works wonders. Well the cold version is no different! It helped to make me feel better, so I could take care of everyone else. The orange taste helped me to drink it quickly and because it's dissolved, it goes to work quickly vs cold pills that take awhile to start working. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Cold Relief I was a little congested and feeling a cold coming on so I tried the Alka-seltzer cold medicine.
