Let us know what you think and join the conversation at the bottom of this article.

Haggis nuggets with Irn-Bru chutney and macaroni and cheese pie with a crumb of Irn-Bru glazed bacon on the menu at the new pop-up shop, Burns By BRU, which will deliver to homes across the capital from Friday until January 25.

The launch comes after a ScotPulse survey found that 55% of Scots associate Burns Night with being Scottish, and 49% of young Scots do not celebrate the occasion at all.

The Burns By Bru menu will be available from January 21 to 25

Generations are also split on what the supper itself entails, with 50% of Scots giving Burns Night importance to haggis, neeps and tatties.

Almost a fifth of people under the age of 34 said they didn’t know how to make a Burns Supper, while 15% said they would be excited about Burns Night if there was a more modern version of the meal.

But Irn-Bru hopes this new pop-up restaurant will help keep the celebrations alive and encourage more young people to raise a glass (or a can) to the life and work of Rabbie Burns.

Adrian Troy, Chief Marketing Officer at AG Barr, said: “As a brand so proud of our Scottish roots, it was obvious to unite with UberEats to ensure that future generations continue to celebrate a day that has become synonymous to celebrate being Scottish. .

“We hope BRU fans across the country will join us in toasting Rabbie while enjoying their reimagined Burns supper. And we’re happy to say that for every Burns by BRU meal ordered, the full cost will be donated directly to Scottish Food Banks – as the Bard himself put it, ‘a man is a man for a ‘it’.”

Each meal costs £5 and all proceeds will be donated to food banks in Edinburgh and Glasgow. But those wishing to sample the reinvented classic will need to be quick, as there are only a limited number of meals available. You can order from 5:30 p.m. on the UberEats app.

You can also share photos of your meal on Instagram and Twitter, using the hashtag #BurnsByBru.
