It's Also A Weird Word (Purple, That Is)

Grape flavoured candies are generally my favourite in a candy-group situation.

You know, like in the skittles package, I like the grape ones best.  Or the SweetTarts.... grape!

I was thinking about that the other day and then I started thinking about the fact that the grape ones are not actually grape flavoured. 

Like, I was sitting there eating one and I thought, you know, this doesn't really taste like what I think grapes taste like.  So... have we (the candy manufacturers I guess, really) just found a purple flavour for candies and we just call it grape because some grapes are purple?  (At the exclusion of green grapes, because green is usually "lime" flavour.)

So... I guess I like "grape flavour" candy.  And grapes.  Even if that's not the same... flavour.

(I think too much.  It's ok.  Sometimes.)

And orange as a flavor is more about the color than the fruit. Light red = strawberry, dark red = cherry. Which forced raspberry to take over the color blue, while blueberry gets dark blue.

But they're just the colors, not the actual fruit flavors.

Also, I love purple flavor. And green.
