It may be good for the Scots as far as marketing resistance, Bagpuss, but otherwise, Irn Bru is the most disgusting soft drink I've ever encoutered. It's flourescent orange, smells like liquid bubble gum (and tastes like it too, I'm given to believe, I won't let it near me), contains chemicals that the FDA (who let us eat hot dogs and twinkies) wont allow in food in the US, and will stain the skin a bright orange that doesn't wipe off. *shudder*
Myself, I drink very few things. Water, milk, hot chocolate, and, sad to say, Dr Pepper. I blame it on my parents, it's the only soda they drink. But I only drink it when I'm in America, since British Dr Pepper is twice as sweet, so that's only three or four months of the year. And root beer, but they don't have that in Britain. I drink sparkling elderflower or apple sometimes on special occasions, but not usually... that leaves me, most of the time, with water and milk. Somehow, poor little me, I survive.
I think it's very strange that people don't like water, though. Nothing's quite as refreshing. I've heard people say it tastes bad, or boring, seen ads that say "make water more interesting!" or "make water taste good!" and I don't understand... I know people who hate it, but it's what we live on! There's no accounting for taste.
