Posted 6th Jul
This doesn't need much introduction. Iron Brew! Scotland's best selling soft drink! Great price for a pack of 12 500ml bottles. Works out to be about 46p a bottle. This is an add-on item.

Aspartame riddled crap. A mere shadow of its former self. Those who proclaim that they can't tell the difference have serious issues with their tastebuds.

Bring back real Irn-Bru. Boycott Barr.

I can't remember the difference. I had it years ago and then again …I can't remember the difference. I had it years ago and then again recently. I like it.


The old one cured hangovers. When paired with a roll and sausage it was analogous to a fine pinot noir and a fillet steak. It was basically the best soft drink man has ever witnessed.

The new one tastes like feet.

You're beyond help if you think that the new one compares in any way. It's horrific.

It’s the sugar tax. Either reformulate or charge more. Cola Cola was one the few brands that didn’t want to change the recipe - hence the stupid small cans for the “real thing”. Probably a good thing looking at how overweight we are as a nation but they have ruined many of our favourite tipples.

Obviously I know that they're blaming the sugar tax.

There is now very little choice for those of us who cannot stand the taste (or effects) of aspartame, not to mention those with PKU.
Yet another example on nanny state-ism, using a sledgehammer to crack a nut. Are our politicians really so incompetent that they can't think of a way beyond additional taxation in order to address an issue?

Regardless, I no longer buy any Barr's products, and probably never will again.
cold from me iron brew is 8 for £2.50 in asda so effectively 16 for £5 and no messing about adding it to other items to get it for this price

ok edit here this didn't originally refer to bottles :-/

So many classic drinks have been ruined by overprotective interference.

Sin taxes! Meanwhile the population is obese as ever.

Slippery slope we're on when it comes to reformulating the food and drink we love. To the point that it's actually harming the economy. relitive to what the tax brings in, to the loss in sales.

People just aren't active anymore, maybe target those areas with more taxes. Gaming and entertainment is whats keeping everyone house bound, including me too!

Sure, as long as all NI contributions and alcohol taxes hitherto paid are refunded at point of refusal.

Anyway, the people you describe tend to live shorter lives, therefore costing the taxpayer less in the long run.

In fact, if you're that determined to get the most for your taxpayer's penny, you should be actively encouraging people to live fast and die young.

Apparently, VAT (@10%) replaced the 25% Purchase Tax in 1973. The main difference was Purchase Tax was applied at the point of manufacture and distribution, not at the point of sale.

Don't forget that the highest level of Income Tax was in the region of 90% in the 1960s and 80% in the 1970s.

Plus the Personal Allowance has increased nearly threefold in the last decade.

As you say, it's slowly but surely creeping into all areas of our lives as it's the lazy option for an unimaginative government.

I agree about business taxes needing to be competitive.

Regarding personal Income Tax, you should only be paying 20% on the first £50,000 and then 40% on anything above that amount.
I thought 24 cans and a £4 Amazon Pantry Reward for £6 was a good deal.. Until I tasted it. Vile stuff now.
