" The Bru must get through "
£2 was a crazy price to begin with imo! Maybe I'm just showing my age though lol
I bought one for £2. Tasted it and felt robbed. It's nothing special at all.
Ship it South! I must get my fix of decent bru
Reduced because it's out of date, it's 119 years old!

It never was. Their sales have been crap so someone probably thought let's bringing the original recipe back but tweak it a bit and claim it's from 1901. I don't know how they justify the price because the sugar tax on 750ml is only 18p.

My mate brought me one back and it tasted like the good old days pre sweetener

Have you tried b&m? Seem to be in some of their stores outside of Scotland. I got some this weekend from b&m and I'm based in Durham.
How does this compare to the full sugar original one before they ruined it with aspartame ? Also has anyone seen these in there local supermarket across England ? I haven’t I really want to try it

Only seen it at a recent visit to Beamish Museum and B&M. I believe this version is caffeine free unlike the original full sugar version also has 0.7g more sugar than the original one.

Wow really , I’ve been into homebargains last week and there wasn’t any will try a b&m , how does it taste like? I stopped drinking t new stuff for about 3 months and tried a can last week and I could taste Chemicals you know like when having a medicine tablet on your tongue for about 20 seconds , don’t think I’m going to touch it again . Lidl own brand bru use to be a very good alternative and they too have changed the recipe but it’s not as bad as iru bru brand

It's full sugar and similar to pre sugar tax . Wouldn't say the same but could be nostalgia playing tricks
I've not bought any bru since they destroyed it.

If you are in North of England, around Manchester, Liverpool, Sheffield, Middlesbrough or Halifax and have a GoLocal or GoLocal Extra store near you they might have some in, as stock has just been released in to their supply chain.

It was meant to go in pre Christmas, but sales in Scotland were apparently so good there was no stock available.
Sugar Tax doesn't add that much onto the cost so why are they charging so much, excuse to increase the price
If The Government made something costs 10p-20p more the company will increase the price by 50%

It's like with Coca Cola that should have only increased by say 20p but now it's like 50% more
God f Jamie Oliver and The Politicians who brought this in

20p per 100ml!! Even alcohol is cheaper per 100ml depending on what you get and how many you buy, even Coca Cola despite the increases work out cheaper than 20p per 100ml
Btw always look at the price per or each since a lot of times you could be paying double for something without realising

Its not the same as the pre-sugar tax recipe that's for sure, it doesn't have caffeine or quinine in it for starters. To me it just tasted like cheap off-brand iron brew, it was disappointing, it's definitely missing some of the complexity of flavour that the newer recipe has

I know before sugar tax i think the full sugar 750ml glass bottles used to cost £1 which would be 80p before VAT. So 80p + sugar tax of 18p would be 98p and then add 20% vat would make total cost £1.18.

Yep 32p added because they can, it may not seem much but it's a massive difference
The tax makes things expensive than companies makes things even more expensive

It's basically a 50% increase in price, not just Irn Bru

Technically 82p added as Barr's RRP for this is £2 and is what it has mainly sold at with a few shops selling a bit cheaper to clear stock for new lines.

Yeah forgot it's ridiculous, what's more ridiculous how people accept this crap. Or is it more ridiculous a government thinks of this crap and thinks it's a good idea, same goes for bedroom tax, TV licence, Minimum Alcohol pricing in Scotland on top of all the high tax already

Corbyn wants a bloody garden tax, because apparently only the elite have those apparently, maybe in London but where I live even people in a council house have a garden, I live in a flat and technically have a garden since you've got to enter tiny garden before you get to the door

I can confirm that B&M have it in the South, got a bottle yesterday from their Romford branch (opposite the hospital) for two quid. Bit pricey but I'm curious to try it.
