Irn-Bru is one of Scotland’s most beloved drinks, and this summer will see two limited edition flavours hit the shelves.

These aren’t just any random flavours though – these are the flavours as chosen by Irn-Bru fans themselves, after battling it out in a public vote.

The new flavours

Last week, Irn-Bru fans were presented with four new potential flavours that they could see added to the Irn-Bru XTRA line up this summer. Of these four flavours, only the top two most popular flavours would be getting made.

The four flavours were:

  • Tropical
  • Ice Cream
  • Marshmallow
  • Candy Floss

Fans were asked to use a love heart emoji to vote for tropical, a thumbs up to vote for ice cream, a shocked face for marshmallow and a laughing face for candy floss.

Almost 13,000 votes were cast in the public poll, and the crowned winners were:

  • Tropical, with 5,300 votes
  • Ice cream, with 4,000 votes

Third place was candy floss, with 2,400 votes and in last place came marshmallow, with 1,000 votes.

Adrian Troy, AG Barr Marketing Director, said, “The battle was fierce, but our fans have spoken with Tropical and Ice Cream chosen as our limited edition summer flavours.

“We’re always looking to give our fans something XTRA and we can’t wait to see these two new phenomenal flavours hit shop shelves.”

When will the flavours be available?

There is no specific date released for the debut of these two new flavours, but they will be available across Scotland from mid-May.

The limited edition flavours will be sold in either 500ml bottles, for 99p, or 1.5l bottles, for £1.29.

They will be made in the AG Barr factory in Cumbernauld.
