Enerzaid – A New Glucose Drink

Enerzaid Logo

After a successful Kickstarter campaign, Enerzaid was born.

Enerzaid is creating a new range of classic sparkling glucose drinks, free of artificial sweeteners, in ‘Original‘, ‘Orange’ & ‘True Brew’ flavours. Full sugar and full taste!

Their website is: Enerzaid.co.uk

Their “Right to choose” mission statement put’s A.G. Barr to shame:

Why Are We Doing This?

If you’re like us, you’ve no problem with low sugar drinks; you support the idea of a healthier nation consuming less sugar.

However, you also feel like your freedom of choice is being taken away. You feel frustrated that you can no longer enjoy a product because some people use sugar in their diets irresponsibly.

You object to government legislation that dictates what’s ‘for our own good’. You’ve been left disappointed by companies that have ignored feedback from loyal consumers about recipe changes that prioritise profit over people.

These companies have made it clear that they have no intention of restoring their products back to full sugar versions. They’re gone and never coming back …

BUT WE CAN START AGAIN.

That’s why we started enerzaid.co.uk. We believe people have the right to choose.

We’re choosing to restore the classic tastes that have been taken away from the public.

1 Year on and still waiting for A.G. Barr to see sense

It’s now 1 year since Ryan’s petition was started. A lot has been done, a lot is still being done…A.G. Barr still aren’t listening to us.

https://www.change.org/p/barrs-soft-drinks-company-hands-off-our-irn-bru-please-dont-change-the-recipe-by-cutting-sugar-for-sweeteners

53k people sign a petition, A.G. Barr ignore it.

 

What’s next?

Coca-Cola becomes Scotland favourite Soft Drink, knocking Irn-Bru off the top spot?
A.G Barr directors retire to a nice little island somewhere?

Who knows what will happen in the next year….

About the group

This group is for people who support and proactively campaign for the reinstatement of original recipe IRN-BRU.

We encourage all our members to boycott all of AG Barr’s drinks range including; Rubicon, Rockstar, Tizer, Strathmore Water and many more. While we understand this is somewhat of a contradiction we have no problem with people buying up and showing off the last of the real bru.

Sales posts will be allowed only at the discretion of admin. Price must be stated. No blatant rip offs. Chancers will be blocked from posting.

This is not a group for discussing or debating the effects of Aspartame. Fake news, memes and claims with no credible sources will not be allowed. Neither will people posting aspartame is safe, debunks etc. We’ve been over it all on both sides take it elsewhere.

Tread lightly on the subject of the politics surrounding the issue. Don’t let it descend into people pledging allegiance or greivances towards political parties. Snp this, Tory that etc. Enough Division, unite behind real bru.

Keep posts positive. We have an ultimate aim here to have the reinstatement of the real deal. If you are feeling disheartened and tempted to write a “face it they are never going to bring it back” Just don’t bother. We are the biggest collective of people campaigning about anything relating to the sugar tax levy or reformulation. AG Barr takes this movement seriously

Boycott Barr Products

A.G. Barr has several products that we are boycotting, you might be surprised by some of themThere are very few Barr products without sweeteners which is bad news for people who don’t like the after taste of sweeteners or are unable to consume sweeteners for health reasons. If people’s tastes are changing then make, Diet, Xtra and by all means keep the reduced sugar version but, give me my choice back – I want full sugar Irn-Bru that I have been drinking for over 25 years.
