Blog: Will Barr take Rapidz action?

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

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

Yes Iron Brew….

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