Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Barr Irn Bru 32 Confirmed sighting: Barr Irn Bru 32
Posted: 16:46 Thu 04-May-2006. Price: 1.35/ 250ml . Location: Motherwell Concert Hall. Nutritional unusualness: 11.5g "carbohydrate", 32mg caffeine per 100ml - ie 80mg per can.
"Douglas Neilson" reports: This has been out for ages, and I really thought someone else would submit the sighting. It is a big disappointment. The grapefruit comment mentioned earlier is evident in tasting, but for me the best way to describe it would be flat, dull Irn Bru with loads and loads of sugar.

...Further first-time spotting from "Douglas Neilson" here, though "Sally" claims to have paid 1.29 for hers at "Jet Filling Station, Walsall (opposite pikeys place)", contending: Nice, didn't taste like Irn Bru which helped to be honest as I don't like the stuff. Would have it again, but it isn't as nice as Relentless. And, just to add my own observations, Sainsbury's seem to be selling it for a slightly more reasonable 95p/ can, and it didn't taste as tropical as the "outrageous orange pineapple" EAS Piranha Energy Drink I got for 89p in Holland and Barrett recently. In other soft-drink sojourns: "Here's proof of the football bottle" writes "paul" (apropos of this discussion); Glaxo Smithkline have launched a Really Light Blueberry Ribena; and Britvic have added Orange, or Clear Raspberry and White Cranberry flavours to their bafflingly advertised range of Tango Clears.

Comment: Tourette's in a can - bought one this morning and after the first sip said "f*** what does this taste like". Then the caffeine hit, and I was hyper for an hour or so, swearing lots. Odd stuff, had another can a bit later - same effect.

Far better than redbull, not as good as relentless.

Comment: This stuff is OK, doesn't really taste of Irn Bru but I'd choose it over Red Bull.

Comment: Finally tried this and i love it! tastes alot nicer than Red Bull and Relentless, tis my favourite energy drink, but of course it's too expensive at £1.09 for a tiny can, a fair price would be 50-60p as it's only a few mouthfuls at best
