Today, I had to explain to my friend that a blue raspberry is not a blackberry, and that blue raspberry is an artificial flavor, not a fruit. This explanation took much longer than it should have. FML

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.

That was berry stupid of him.

Maybe you need new friends...?

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

Isn't intellect a part of one's personality?

#1 it's not that serious fam.....

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.

Honestly this shouldn't even need to happen. Why is it BLUE raspberry?

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

Blue raspberry flavoring actually stems from the white bark raspberry.

Probably the sane reason as "green apple", except green apples actually exist

Blue raspberry does have a bit of a different taste than regular raspberry

That was berry stupid of him.

Just look at it this way: dumb friends can be entertaining.

Everyone has a right to be stupid, but it seems like your friend abuses that privilege.

I'm impressed you stuck it out for the entire explanation. I wouldn't be given up halfway through.

Yeah I'd give up halfway through teaching you grammar

Holy shite! I really need to proof read before I post. lol

I guess your friend was a little BLUE when they found out that berry wasn't even real. I'll leave now...

People are like different elements. Some can be really fucking dense.

I just Googled and was not disappointed. Thanks for the info, #9!

Yeah, play with semantics hard enough and you can make anyone seem to be wrong.

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.
