    From an office debate: can something taste pink? Or purple?

    For instance a fruit snack. You eat it. It's fruity but you can't pinpoint it. Not strawberry. Not raspberry. Is it acceptable to say it tastes like pink?

    No, something cannot taste pink, as colors do not have flavor.

    Now, we all know that certain colors can be associated with certain flavors, but the reality is that you can take something that tastes like a pineapple and make it pink. You can make something pink (or in this example red) and make it taste like chocolate, like red velvet cake. Colors are visual stimuli created by the spectrum of light.

    I wonder if the color was named after the fruit, or the fruit after the color.
    Something can taste like an orange, but I dont think it is correct to state that something tastes orange.

    Thats pretty interesting. Though, it kind of makes sense.
    Someone got lazy when they were naming colors...

    So I wonder how people described the color "orange" before it became a color? IIRC somewhere in the Hebrew Bible the sky was described as a "fire red color," maybe that was orange

    So "red" predates "orange"?
