The Irn-Bru recipe is changing, and life will never be the same again

Gaelic, bag pipes and now Irn Bru

The government has forced Irn-Bru to go out to a field, dig its own grave and say goodbye to the sweet old land of Caledonia.

Irn-Bru's recipe will now be changed so it has less sugar. This is mainly due to the government's impending soft drinks levy, which will be actioned this coming April.

The Scottish liquid bible will now have four teaspoons of sugar instead of the glorious 8.5, and calories will drop to 65 from 140.

Even Jezza loves some Irn gold
