Why Did I Create This Website?

Inspired by an Initial petition to Bring Back Real Irn-Bru and the very active Facebook group for likeminded people, I decided to create this website as a protest against Barr and their decision to change an over 100 year old recipe to include artificial sweeteners and, in my view, ruin the taste.

Apparently the change was not a result of the UK Sugar Tax (although the timing is suspiciously similar) and not an effort to reduce costs by Barr to lower sugar and include cheaper Aspartame. It is mearly “people’s tastes are changing” as A.G. Barr so frequently mention. I don’t belive Barr’s statement and as a life long drinker of Irn-Bru I have boycotted all Barr’s products and now drink Coca Cola as a replacement.
