Blog: Will Barr take Rapidz action?

Michelle Russell | 29 July 2010

just-drinks' readers may have noticed a product launch story we published on the site recently.

It was from UK soft drinks firm Calypso drinks, which last week unveiled a line of carbonated soft drinks called Rapidz.

Nothing wrong with that you may think.

Rapidz is available in three flavours; Cola, Iron Brew and Lemonade.

Yes Iron Brew….

Upon asking AG Barr for comment today, I was swiftly told that it is not their policy to comment on competitor activity.

I could be wrong, but I have a feeling this won’t be the last we hear on the subject.
