​Someone Is Selling A Bottle Of Old Recipe Irn-Bru With ‘Fanny’ Written On It On eBay For £1,700

​Someone Is Selling A Bottle Of Old Recipe Irn-Bru With ‘Fanny’ Written On It On eBay For £1,700

People are always looking for ways to make a quick couple of quid. eBay offers an easy-to-use hack of making your dream a reality, if you're really lucky.

The other week we told you about the LADs who are running a business on the marketplace site that turns over up to £70,000 ($95,000) every year from punting rare coins.

It's true that you could make a bit of cash selling your change for more than it's worth - though the prices people list things for are not what they eventually sell for, which is important to remember.

However, if - for example - you happened to be in a middle-of-the-road pop group at some point in the late nineties or early noughties, you could be in for a treat.

Paul Cattermole from S Club 7 is selling his BRIT Award from 2002 on eBay and at last check it is up at around £66,000 ($90,000).

Abz from 5ive sold his for about £1m ($1.37m) not so long ago, too - though it's not clear whether he got the full amount.

But one listing could top them all if it receives its true value.

Seller hazel1660 is currently taking bids on a limited edition bottle of Irn-Bru that has 'FANNY' written on it instead of the drink's logo.

The item is from a promotional campaign run by Barr, the Glasgow company that produces Britain's favourite orange soft drink, and perhaps the time to sell is just right, as they have just announced that it is taking the controversial step of changing the recipe to include less sugar.

This has led to terrified consumers/people anticipating hangovers stockpiling the old drink before the switch.

This is big news for hazel1660, who is keen to ensure bidders that she has the original and best.

The listing reads: "Irn-Bru made by the Barr's company of Glasgow, this 750ml glass bottle is a limited edition collector's item promoting the 'Fanny' campaign and TV advert.

"The bottle seal is intact and unopened. Labels are in excellent condition. This bottle contains the original recipe and not the changed recipe that is in the shops from now on.

"Buy the best! Scotland's finest Barr's Irn-Bru made by girders!"

As it stands, the auction has one bid of a massive £1,700 but if you're feeling less flush but still need that sweet sugary hit of original Irn-Bru, you can buy the old stuff on eBay, too - just expect to pay over the odds.

We haven't heard the last of this battle. Remember New Coke? It's not over yet.
