    I actually think it’s better. Tastes sweeter than the full sugar one and the fact there’s no caffeine in it makes a difference imo.

    Got my mate that has a shop to keep a few bottles back for me, my Mum went round and picked them up today. Haven't seen them down here yet, but at least I know I'll get to try it. :)

    Got a couple bottles yesterday, it’s much better than the * they’re passing off as normal Irn Bru just now anyway.

    Could picture myself downing an ice cold glass bottle with a hangover.

    Maybe I'm just remembering it better in my head, it's got much better fizz to it as well right enough and it has more sugar than the actual original good stuff, but yeah still miles better than the new stuff.

    Havent touched the new recipe * since they changed it for the sugar tax. Had a bottle of the old 1901 recipe stuff earlier, much better. Hope they keep this and its not only temporary.

    Honestly cant see them not keeping it. Maybe at first as a christmas till March thing, creame egg style. Selling just way to much not to. Would be utterly idiotic. My works sold 16 cases of the stuff within 1 hour. Its * furby mania out there!!!

    Well your a fool for even using his shop again. Ripping the * and he doesnt deserve customers. A shop near me during the snow the other year bumped his milk to £2 a 1ltr that's normally 79p. Never been back and never will.
