What flavor is blue?

I'm pms'ing and indulging in my favorite junk food, microwave popcorn and blue PowerAde. 

THe flavor name is Mountain Blast.  I love it. But WTF am I drinking.  What is blue?  Blue berry?

"Ingredients: water, high fructose corn syrup, matodextrin (glucose polymers), citric acid, natural flavors, potassium citrate, salt, acacia, potassium phosphate, glycerol ester of wood rosin, coconut oil, blue 1."

So it's a sort of coconut rosin flavor.

Acacia is an ingredient also:

I'm not sure what Acacia tastes like though. It says there it's used in curries.

Wow, check this out:

Serving Size 8 fl oz (240 ml)
Servings per Container 2.5

2.5 servings per 8 ozs? What's that about. Well, it's about making you think the bottle has 19 grams of carbs, when it really has 48 grams.

8oz per serving * 2.5 servings per bottle = 20oz per bottle.

Right. Marcos is an idiot, but he stumbles on a good point. 2.5 servings in a can everyone drinks in a single sitting is BS.

More & more they're listing the nutritional information per serving & per container. Not sure if that's voluntary or a change in regulation.

I once dated a girl named Acacia.  She tasted pretty good.

I've been seeing that too.

On one hand, factory food is produced by lying scum, so I can't belive they're doing it voluntarily.

On the other hand, it seems to appear at random, so I can't believe it's a regulatory requirement.

People don't like blue food, don't mind blue drinks, and pay outrageous money to see blue people.

If you're thinking about the flavour of blue, chances are you might be tripping and not PMSing.
