Taste of Blue

Writing Challenge: August 29, 2018

Prompt: What does blue taste like?

Blue tastes sweet- artificially so. A color not occurring naturally in any food humans eat (not even in blueberries which are actually purple). Our attempts to dye our foods this color has caused up to become heavy-handed with the sugars.

The color of the sky and the water is calming and beautiful. The flavors we have learned to associate with this color in foods is anything but.

Blue tastes fake. It tastes like sour candies and corn-syrup slurppies. It’s so unreal and strangely addicting. We love and hate this fake-food color.
