Do you love Irn Bru? It is changing    A comment from AG Barr- producers of IRN BRU :

Dear Kenneth,
Thank you for your poem.
We love how passionate our drinkers are, we would like to reassure you that  IRN-BRU will remain a sugary drink, we are simply reducing the sugar level. There’s no change to the IRN-BRU essence, which is still made to our secret recipe, and we’ve achieved a really great tasting match with less sugar.  This decision was in response to the majority of our consumers wanting less sugar.
We do value all consumer feedback and I’ll be sure to pass your poem onto the Brand Team.
Kind RegardsGemma Morris
