Jarvis was clearly shocked to find his Irn-Bru had no familiar orange colouring
A BOY was left fizzing when a “one in a million” can of Irn-Bru contained clear juice and not the distinctive orange pop.
Jarvis Morrison Sweeney, from Dunfermline, sat down to enjoy the famous soft drink on Sunday and was shocked at what was inside.
The 11- year- old said: “I thought to myself, ‘ What the hell is going on here?’
“I was surprised and confused.
“It looked like sparkling water. I still had a drink of it though because I wanted to see what it tasted like.”
Jarvis and his mum Alana Maxwell said the drink smelled like Irn- Bru, it tasted like Irn-Bru, but it certainly did not look like the popular drink.
Alana, who runs the Auld Mi l l House Hot el in Dunfermline, said: “I had just bought the case of Sugar Free
Irn-Bru from Bookers Cash and Carry a few days before so I knew it was definitely still in date.
“We couldn’t believe it when we saw it.
“Jarvis was loving it. It gave us some much needed entertainment.
“All these years I’ve thought Irn- Bru got it’s famous colouring from girders and now this has happened.
“Is it really just colouring they add? The mind boggles.”
Irn-Bru bosses said young Jarvis’s rare find was a one-ina-million can and have offered to send him some freebies to make up for his confusion.
A spokesperson from Irn-Bru said: “It’s very rare to get a clear can of Irn-Bru.
“We’ll be sending Jarvis’s family a few cases of Irn-Bru Sugar Free to thank them for telling us.”
