Blue raspberry is a common flavoring for candy, snack foods, sweet syrups and soft drinks. It is more commonly used in the United States, as a sweet flavoring. The flavor originates from Rubus leucodermis, more commonly known as the "Whitebark Raspberry" or "Blue Raspberry" for the blue-black color of its fruit.
Food products labeled as Blue Raspberry flavor often contain a bright blue food coloring, the most common being Brilliant Blue FCF (although this coloring is not accurate to the real-life color of the fruit).
Famous quotes containing the words flavor and/or blue:
“No man ever quite believes in any other man. One may believe in an idea absolutely, but not in a man. In the highest confidence there is always a flavor of doubta feeling, half instinctive and half logical, that, after all, the scoundrel may have something up his sleeve.”
—H.L. (Henry Lewis)
“And nothing I cared, at my sky blue trades, that time allows
In all his tuneful turning so few and such morning songs
Before the children green and golden
Follow him out of grace.”
—Dylan Thomas (19141953)
