Blue raspberry

Blue raspberry candy flavor based on real fruit called blue raspberry

Blue raspberry is a common flavoring for candy, snack foods, syrups and soft drinks. 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 an accurate rendition of the actual color of the fruit, which has an almost black hue when ripe.
