Blue food, part two

Why are raspberry-flavored Flavor-Ice, Sno-Cones, et al. usually blue?

A WAG, but probably to distinguish it from the more popular cherry flavor.

They put smurfs in 'em.

Importation of raspberries from Mars, they’re cheaper.

Because they’re not raspberry; they’re BLUE raspberry. Red raspberry is just too… trite.


'Cause their baby done left 'em and da rent is due. Dey ain’t got not money and dats why they’re blue.
