Review of "Barr Irn Bru"
The liquid itself is extremely gassy and a distinct lurid orange colour (almost as bright as a highlighter pen)According to the bottle has been \"Bru\'d in Scotland to a secret recipe for over 100 years\" and apparently only 2 board members know it and a written copy is locked away in a bank vault in Switzerland - exciting stuff eh!?!. The bottle recommends that the drink should be served cool and I heartily agree with that. The 500ml bottle is 23cm tall and 6cm wide down the majority of the bottle. The sleeve around the bottle is in the distinctive bright orange and royal blue colours, with the screw top also being the same shade of blue, but the spinning man logo printed on the top. The spinning man logo also features on the sleeve of the bottle sections and is supposed to symbolise the energy and vitality drinking a bottle of this can give you.
I am so sorry but I cannot describe the flavour or the aroma. they are truly unique and seeing as we have established that the recipe is top secret, I cannot put my finger on what the flavours are. Suffice to say, you\'ll either like it or you won\'t - if you\'ve never tried it, give it a go. If you have tried it, you\'ll hopefully understand why I can\'t quite put into words what it tastes like - it is quite sweet, but that\'s what you\'d expect from a sugary bottle of pop.The nitty gritty details regarding the drink are listed below and the most worrying item on there for me is the amount of sugar contained within the drink. If you were to drink a full 500ml bottle (like I just have), then you will have consumed 42.6g of sugar, which is 58% of your recommended daily amount....frightening I\'m sure you\'ll agree.
