Check out what the Scottish Tartan Museum down in Franklin, NC had in stock:
That, my friends, is Irn-Bru. And not just plain Irn-Bru, but the Diet version, which is exceedingly hard to come by outside of Scotland. They had a case of the Diet stuff left, and I bought it to haul back north with us.
Irn-Bru is my favorite soda. I got hooked on it when I visited Scotland in 1996. It’s hard to describe the flavor to someone who has never tried it. It’s not a cola, and it doesn’t taste fruity. There’s a hint of that Red Bull-esque “liquid gummy bears” flavor, but it’s not nearly as cloying or sweet as Red Bull. For those of you not local to Franklin, NC, there are a few sellers on Amazon.com who offer both the regular and diet versions, although shipping might cost a bit.
Irn-Bru: two thumbs up from the Munchkin Wrangler Test Kitchen.
