Crush Blue Raspberry

Crush Blue Raspberry

Released for the summer of 2011, the Blue Raspberry flavor of Crush soda is a nice addition to the Crush lineup. Blue Raspberry flavoring originates from the Rubus leucodermis raspberry plant. Naturally, the fruit is a dark purple to near black when ripe, but Crush, as well as most other blue raspberry products, add a bright blue food coloring.

Crush Blue Raspberry is caffeine free, with 40g of sugar and 160 calories per can.  Containing no notable ingredients, the Blue Raspberry uses Blue 1 to get its bright blue color.

Mike’s Thoughts:

Light on the carbonation and easy going down, the Blue Raspberry hits your taste buds with high impact. The soda leaves your tongue and lips blue, so don’t drink this if you plan on impressing someone later. The soda has an aftertaste reminiscent of the standard Orange Crush flavor.

Carbonation: 2/5
Sweetness: 3/5
Complexity: 3/5
Smell: 5/5
Aftertaste: 2/5

Overall Taste:  3/5

Spencer’s Thoughts:

Crush Blue Raspberry 12 packHmm. My first thought when I first took a sip was that it tasted like a blue raspberry slushy. It has a strong smell of raspberry upon opening. I don’t really taste the raspberry until after you take a drink. Its lightly carbonated. Like any good raspberry slushy, it turns your lips and tongue blue, but leaves a slightly bland taste at the end.

Carbonation: 2/5
Sweetness: 3/5
Complexity: 3/5
Smell: 5/5
Aftertaste: 3/5

Overall Taste:  3/5

    This drink is THE BOMB!!!!!!!!!! I first bought it from a vending machine at work. That weekend, I drove around (to 5 gas stations total) looking for it and was saddened when I realized I would have to wait until Monday to have another since it is not being sold anywhere else on my side of town. It is sooooo good. Please, Crush, do not take this one away.

    I’ve dreamed about a blue raspberry soda for 20 years. The day has arrived. Very accurate review (I’m drinking some as I’m typing).
