Lots of shops sell it in Dubai so it's available in the ME. Sweet so very attractive to the arab taste but possibly not used in KSA for a hangover cure

The Saudi made Vimto cordial is at least twice as thick as U.K. Vimto. Quite apt, really....

It's absolutely yuck!

I used to work for a scittish company, HQ in glasgay. When we had to go there (from London), lunch was always served for say 20 people with 8 cans each of irn bru and diet irn bru (WTF), and 4 cans of coke.

There was 8 of us from dahn sarf, it was a mad rush to get the Coke!

I will agree with you that diet Irn Bru is yuck. It is an insult to all right thinking Scots. Regular Irn Bru is an aquired taste, but there again, so is Tizer...
