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).
