    It'll be interesting to see what effect people "stocking up" on the old stuff and simply wanting to try the new stuff. There's a loud following of people who bang on about never buying the new stuff on social media - personally I don't notice the difference.

    Drinking my first can since the change over. Actually forgot all about it until I saw this thread. No change in taste noted from me

    Theyve changed Lucozade too. I thought the bottle I was drinking at the weekend was off until it clicked that it might be due to the sugar tax. I looked at the ingredients and it was full of artificial sweeteners.

    Im not a huge fan of the new Irn Bru but at least it is drinkable. The new Lucozade is vile. I chucked it away.

    Inka Cola in Peru also outsells the major Cola brands.

    Heavy streak of nationalism in the promotion of that brand as well.
    I've been lucky enough to have Inca Cola when I was in Peru and it's brilliant out a glass bottle, same sort of appeal to Irn Bru with its bright colour.

    Anyone else had it?

    I'm hosting two teenage boys from St Petersburg this week. Irn Bru mental. Reduced sugar doesn't seem to be bothering them.

    Its not due to a reduced sugar content but, Twiglets are very bland now compared to when I were a lad! :-)

    This will definitely be down to folk buying the original when they could see it. It's still available in heaps of newsagents just now with the "39p phenomenal value" across the top while the supermarkets have had the larger packs of cans on sale. I thought it'd be hard to get early Feb so wouid buy a couple when I saw them.

    My main issue wasn't with taste but the use of aspartame which, as some others have said themselves, I avoid. I did try one out of curiosity and I could tell the difference, it's got that chemical taste to it.

    I noticed Red Kola is down in sugar but doesn't have aspartame in it so not sure what they've done there.

    Probably you tastebuds are to blame. They become less effective over the years.
