It's chilli-flavoured.

The first time they have ever meddled with the recipe, allegedly. It'll be a limited edition thing, unless it sells well, in which case it may become a permanent addition.

just got and drank a can of fiery irn bru 49p for a 330ml tin
it is fiery leaves a taste in your mouth the same as you get when at the dentist at least thats what it tasted like to me also you can still feel the fieryness five minutes after drinking it but its not something you can down in one though
just take it in gentle sips
its also available in glass bottles and 500ml plastic bottles which are 89p

I think they missed a trick there, why didn't they call it Firen Bru? :)
