Actually, the Blue Sour Patch Kid was not part of the original flavors. At first, there were only four flavors and colors, red (cherry), yellow (lemon), green (lime) and orange (peach). In 2013, blue (blue raspberry was added).

Although many people love the blue raspberry, peach never seems to top the popular list. It is interesting that orange is peach flavored, not orange flavored.
