You do realize that the artificial flavor is based of the whitebark raspberry which is also known as the blue raspberry? Just like the artificial banana flavoring is based off the Gros Michel banana not the cavendish that we eat today. In other words, you're both wrong.

I thought people base off their friendships with personality... not intelligence. Seems like you might be one of the odd ones out!

While I agree with "good personality > intelligence", it'd be very odd as a human being to be friends with people who aren't even close to being in the same realm of intelligence as you. It's just how people work.

Well, I have some friends that I got to know better at the start because they weren't the brightest in class. So I would spend some of my time to help them understand, this in then turns into a friendship... befriending one with the same intellect is not always the case. Maybe it would seem that way to older people who've been working, so they befriend others in the workplace, and they are usually of the same intellect and have similar abilities in their skill sets.

I believe that raspberry was made blue to avoid confusing raspberry and either cherry or strawberry while eating mixed candies.

Dude, I read a history of candy, that covered the explosion of blue raspberry flavor in the industry, and they didn't even mention that. Thanks!

#15 What semantics? There is actually a blue raspberry that the flavor is based on. Yes, they make it a ridiculous blue but so is most candy.
