*About the product*
Irn Bru is a soft, fizzy drink produced by A G Barr who has been making drinks since 1875 with Irn Bru being the most popular product in the range. In 1980, they created a sugar free version of the famous Scottish drink and da da daaaa Diet Irn Bru!
*The packaging & look*
Packaging varies depending on which form (bottle/can etc) you purchase. Irn Bru can be distinguised by its blue, oranger and white label. The label has an athletic man logo, the company and product name, nutritional information, ingredients and company details. Irn Bru is easy to spot in the cabinet due to being orange in colour.
Diet Irn Bru is available in many forms including :
Small plastic bottle referred to as *wee bru* which is 250ml
can with ring pull top which is 330ml

*Availability and Price*
Diet Irn Bru is widely available all over Scotland. I believe it is in limited supply to England, Wales, Ireland and abroad. Prices vary, some cans or bottles are pricemarked and prices range from approx 39p up to around £2 depending on store purchased in.
Each 250ml serving contains
2kcal 0g sugar 0g fat 0g that saturates <1% salt

I love Irn Bru! Being Scottish and living not far from Glasgow where the Irn Bru originated, its always available in my local shops. I used to prefer normal Irn Bru but switched to diet in the past year and find it is much nicer, doesnt go flat quite a quick and its sugar free! I think Irn Bru tastes best really chilled and straight from a glass bottle. Its refreshing and cool. I especially love the adverts for Irn Bru and my favourite is the Snowman advert they play at Christmas, along with that and the Coca Cola one, you really know its christmas when they put these on! I have tried Irn Bru in England and in Spain and i personally dont think it tastes the same as locally..dont know why to be honest. I would recommend you try this, its not for everyone but no calories..come on its worth a taste at least, even if you arent Scottish like me!
Tip - don't pay local shop or takeaway prices, Iceland and Farmfoods do the 2l plastic bottles for a £1.
Summary: NO CALORIES, NO FAT..REALLY?
