In childhood they're the magical alternative to moribund orange squash. In adulthood, fizzy drinks are the assumed hangover cure that never quite works. Here's our favourites...

Fizzy drinks are ace. In childhood they are the exciting and magical alternative to moribund orange squash. In adulthood, fizzy drinks are the assumed hangover cure that never quite works…

So what are Britain’s finest fizzy drinks?


The mysterious 32 flavoured orange-coloured drink of Scottish Gods. IrnBru is made from a secret recipe that is only know by two people in the known world, that remains stored within a bank vault in Scotland. IrnBru follows in the tradition of many Great British fizzy drinks in that its name offers zero indication to what it will actually taste like. Regardless, it tastes amazing.

Fizzy Vimto

A Great British Drink, this fizzy fruity mix was originally named Vim Tonic, later shortened, as we all know and love, to Vimto. Few things say Great Britain more than fish and chips accompanied by a Fizzy Vimto. Like red wine and steak, this truly is a perfect pairing.


This pineapple and grapefruit drink is only sold in four countries worldwide, with the United Kingdom being one of those lucky nation states. Introduced back in 1975, Lilt and its “totally tropical taste” has wowed the inhabitants within the Axis of Lilt formed of Seychelles, Gibraltar, Republic of Ireland and the United Kingdom. A very select group I’m sure you would agree.

IrnBru and Fizzy Vimto, yes. Lilt over Dandelion and Burdock? Nononononono.

It pleases me that Coke and Pepsi must waste hours of time and money developing strategies to try and overcome the fact that Irn Bru still outsells them in Scotland.

Lilt is tings slightly spazzy relation. Like John Rooney or Tony Gerrard signing for your football club, it isnt threw real thing, just seems a bit like it if you squint a bit. Rio or cherryade?

No Panda pop ?

Tom 8:56 pm, 14-May-2012

I have to say, Rio beats all of these hands down.

I always loved Shandy Bass as a kid, drank gallons of the stuff In pubs when my dad managed a Sunday League side. Dandelion & Burdock should be on there as well.
