    Irn Bru 1901

    Anyone tried this? Tried it earlier, just tastes like diet Irn Bru, disappointing. Had hoped it was just marketing, talking about a new and undiscovered recipe etc and it would actually be similar to the old recipe. Doubt Iíll even finish my bottle far less but anymore.

    A million miles from Diet Irn Bru, which is potentially the nastiest diet drink available, anywhere.

    Iíve still got it sitting in the fridge, will need to give it a second try before fully writing it off. Did think it just tasted of that overwhelming chemical flavouring in the likes of Irn Bru Zero rather than closer to the sweet nectar of the original.

    Where do you get it?

    Is it an every supermarket and corner shop sort of thing or is it a bit more niche?

    I've not seen it in many supermarkets yet. Most corner shops seem to have it. Avoid the robbing ******* in the Day Today at Niddrie though, RRP £2, he's charging £2.99 a bottle.

    Chippy near me trying to cash in as well, £2.80 a bottle...

    Co-ops sell them, £2 a pop.

    Tesco Express at the top of Princess Street next to the RBS branch / McDonaldís had plenty in stock when I went to pick up a further two bottles on my lunch break yesterday.

    Only £2 per glass bottle.

    Scotmid on Raeburn Place has it. As does Tesco Express on Fountainbridge.

    I actually thought it was pretty crap and tasted a bit watery.

    I got some last night from Asda Newhaven.

    Delighted to say it was everything I hoped it would be, and more.

    It's superior to it's predecessor in the hangover cure stakes.

    I had a heavy night last night and tanned a bottle this morning. Feel brand new.

    It's heresy in Scotland, but I'm not keen on Irn Bru.

    Had a bottle in my hand in Asda yesterday then decided nah Iím not falling for their clever marketing at £2 a bottle and put it back. Iíll just imagine how good it is.

    I'm addicted.

    Mrs Smartie was less than impressed at having to fork out £2.99 for a bottle from Pierinos when she was in getting the chips last night.

    It has more sugar than the original original version.

    What's the chances Coca Cola could sell their original recipe with the cocaine in it? I'd definitely be interested in that.

    All these drinks taste the same to me, especially if they are ice cold which they should be.

    Can anyone confirm when people from Edinburgh started referring to Irn Bru and other fizzy juice as 'ginger'? Heard loads of folk using it recently.

    We're not ****ing weedgies. In Edinburgh, it's juice.

    Interesting though. At what point on the M8 corridor do they start saying ginger? Harthill? Gartcosh?

    I'd agree with anywhere west of Livi. Once you're at Blackburn/Bathgate there's no remnants of Edinburgh.
