But out of these four flavours, only two will actually be getting made for you to try. Irn-Bru fans are being asked to vote on their favourites, and the two flavours with the highest votes will be produced as part of the XTRA range for summer.

The two winning flavours will be sold across Scotland in either 500ml bottles for 99p or 1.5 litre bottles for £1.29 from the middle of May until the end of summer.

Adrian Troy, AG Barr Head of Marketing, said, “We know that IRN-RBU XTRA is a total knockout but we wanted to give BRU fans an XTRA treat this summer with two new phenomenal flavours.

“We’re bringing a whole new flavour sensation to the market and these new IRN-BRU summer limited edition flavours really do need to be tried to be believed. Whether you’re Clan Tropical, Ice Cream, Marshmallow or Candy Floss, the two winning flavours will be something totally new for BRU fans to enjoy.”

How to vote

The Irn-Bru Facebook page initially made the announcement today (4 March), saying, “4 flavours. Only 2 will be made. Vote for the one you most want here tomorrow. #Battleofthe Bottles”

Fans are being urged to get behind their favourite flavour and will be able to vote by using emojis to vote for different flavours.

The vote will start on Thursday (5 March) and will close on Friday at midnight.
