Anyone know how much caffiene is in Irn Bru?

I mean I know it can't be good for you, nothing that colour exists in nature! But I have heard it is more caffienated than coke and was wondering just how bad it is?

I have no idea but diet stuff used to really work as a hangover cure!!

Err - lots I think. And watch out for the colourings. Used to send me and my sister nuts (even as young adults)

Here you go

Looks like cola (doesn't specify coke in particular) is between 30-110mg/l
Irn Bru is 114 mg/l

Was checking as am wondering if my occasional obsession with the diet stuff is linked to my occasional inability to get to sleep until 2am!

I do know someone who puts it in her vodka (this is Glasgow, after all!) which I suppose would cancel it out a bit ......

I can give it up any time I want, you know.
