Why doesn't Irn Bru taste like it did when I was a kid?

Irn Bru for those of you who don't know is a soft drink from Scotland made from girders. It was something I drunk as a kid but as I got older stopped. Then today I had my first drink in years. But it just didn't taste as I remember it. Perhaps my palettes changed, perhaps the chemicals it was originally made from are now banned, perhaps my memory is just shit, who knows.

So are there any foods/drinks you remember from childhood that just don't taste the same now?
