Irn Bru 'wanted to report a crime' after 'bulls**t' question on American quiz show

By Bev Lyons

Irn Bru officials said they wanted to report a crime after two people appeared on a quiz show to answer a question about Scotland's other national drink.

The two contestants appeared on America's morning show Today with Hodda and Jenna

The question was: "Often called Scotland's other national drink, Irn Bru is what type of beverage?"

The multiple choice answers were A . Cinnamon Milk, B Whiskey Tea, C. Hard Cider, and D- Citrus Flavoured Soda.

One viewer reported the show to Irn Bru saying: @irnbru just now on @HodaAndJenna! (yes, they got it wrong) #scottish @howiemandel."

And Irn Bru immediately responded: "Hello 911, we'd like to report a crime."

Although no-one was told what the contestants responded, followers online were not impressed at the four answers on offer.

Many took offence at the much loved drink being described as citrus with one saying: "Citrus? AYE RIGHT."

And even Irn Bru said: "We call bullsh*t @howiemandel."

One person agreed saying: "Of coarse they got it wrong none of those options r correct."

Another said: "That's no how you spell whisky in Scotland either."

Asked 'Well, then what's the CORRECT answer' , Irn Bru replied: "Phenomenal."

Someone else informed: "It's orange in colour. It has a tanginess of citrus but in actual fact the main flavouring is banana extract."

Another added: "Never heard it being called citrus flavoured lol. Folk in Canada think it tastes like cream soda."

When someone suggested: "I think its best we pretend this didn't happen and move on with our lives." Irn Bru replied: "We'll join you."
