I assume that AG Barr's involvement will be worked into a QAnon conspiracy.

Used to be good before the formula was changed.  Now tastes like rancid cream sofa...

Yeah what chrisco said. They changed the formula, and now it's like someone let a case of Red's sit in the sun for a week. 

Also, if they change the price of Buckfast, that's when the riots will start.

I spent a month in Scotland in 1980.  I still remember the Barr's adverts on telly.

Live action.  A young boy, about 9 or 10 years old, walking along a shipyard.  Finds a can of Irn-Bru, drinks it, hefts up a girder, and finishes the ship in 20 seconds like Popeye on a truckload of spinach.

Growly voice-over:  "Barr's Irn-Bru.  Ye're *other* National Drrrink!"

Can't tell if that's a typo or intentional...

The 1901 version tastes like it always did to me.

I just happened to be in Manchester for an event just as they were changing it the last time & got someone coming from Edinburgh to bring me a few of the "old" formula to try. It wasn't bad at all. However, I could see where making to slightest change to it would ruin the taste, as it was right on the edge of "pretty decent vs that's horrible" beforehand.

I was all about the Ginger Beer.  The idea of orange soda was killed for me as a kid.  It was the only drink dispensed from a machine on the 12 days crossing the Atlantic during Winter storm season -- twice.  I was so seasick I associate anything orange and fizzy with throwing up.

And, having seen so many pictures of her, that face she's making is not registering delight or "wow, that's good."

As the Scots gave the world haggis, one has to wonder about the secret recipe ingredients of Irn-Bru.

"I was so shocked at having something in Glasgow that tasted like HOME," she wrote on the Instagram post. "Count me in, I love it!"

Tastes like bubble gum to me. Fit only for bairns.

Now that I see the whole thing, yeah she likes it.  I feel like an ass for suggesting she didn't.  I should eat a pound of haggis to atone.

Lived in Glasgow for a year back in the early aughts. Drank plenty of Irn Bru, and a lot more Tennents'. Also quite a lot of Volvic, because the tap water in Glasgow was manky.
