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

Duke of Wellington has a new Cone

Duke of Wellington's New Bring back Real Irn-Bru Cone

The Duke of Wellington statue in Glasgow, famous for always having a  roadwork cone on his head has a new Cone.

The Duke’s new cone says “Bring Back Real Irn-Bru”

Is this something the Duke would believe in?

Unfortunately the Duke was unavailable for comment on this latest turn of events.

 

Various tweets on Twitter about the Duke’s new headgear.

Started with a Petition against a change to the Irn-Bru recipe

Petition

The boycott started when A.G Barr change their over 100 year old Irn-Bru recipe to include sweeteners. According to A.G. Barr’s customer services, this wasn’t due to the government sugar and was because people’s tastes are changing.

The petition started by Ryan had 53,728 supporters when it was closed. The petition has featured in newspapers, tv news items and has been ignored by A.G. Barr.

Your can view the petition details here:

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.
