New drink tastes like a full English fry-up

It's the most important meal of the day, and in the hustle and bustle of modern day Britain, why not make another age old tradition obsolete and squeeze the Great British fry-up into a breakfast drink?

A British brand has done exactly that, creating an interesting breakfast bevvy, which, apparently, tastes exactly like a full English.

Flavours blended into the drink include two rashers of bacon, one Cumberland sausage, a poached egg, fried tomatoes and mushrooms and a slice of toast complete with brown sauce.

Scientists developing the drink experimented with 500 fry-up combinations, cooking up 100 packets of bacon, 459 fried eggs. 88 packets of sausages and 46 tins of baked beans.

It may not sound like the most refreshing kick-start, but calorie counters may be interested to hear that the drink weighs in at a tiny 6g of fat, as opposed to the 37g you'd find in the average fry-up.

Company co-founder, Barney Mauleverer, was quoted in the Daily Mail: "It will not be for everyone, but for people who like the great flavour notes of a fry-up, I think it's great."
