Anyone who has watched more than one episode of Bravo’s Top Chef is all-too familiar with the term “flavor profiles.” Using the phrase “flavor profiles” is really just an obnoxious way to describe what food tastes like.
Well, when it comes to celebrating the “flavor profiles” of yesteryear, I’d like to start with a wildly popular and undeniably cool choice: Blue Razzberry Blow Pops.
I remember these bad boys being released to the masses in about seventh grade. Our computer teacher sold these during class, when he wasn’t busy leering at preteen girls. Soon after these became popular, it set off a “blue rasberry” trend that is still sweeping the nation today, with both candies and even drinks.
As a girl who makes a point to order the stupidest drink possible from the “specialty cocktail” menu when the opportunity presents itself (to wit: the “Hello Kitty” at Sei), you bet I am familiar with the taste of blue raspberry liqueur. I’ll admit that. I’m not proud of it, but I will admit it.
Blue Raspberry is a flavor I generally associate with my little brother, who prefers sour/fruit/gum flavor to chocolate treats. This image goes out to Lil’ Bro:
