The energy drink for when Irn-Bru is just too Scottish

Iron Brew

What’s this, a South African version of Scotland’s second-favourite drink? It turns out to have nothing to do with iron or brewing… instead, it appears to be an over-sweet but pleasant-tasting variation of Vanilla Coke, packaged by that same august multinational for nostalgic SA consumers.

It must be tricky being nostalgic in South Africa. It worked for Rodriguez, but I certainly wouldn’t want to push it, not even for 8% of your daily energy needs and 41% of your sugars.
