Raspberry Ripple is a popular flavour of ice cream in Great Britain and elsewhere. It consists of raspberry syrup injected into vanilla ice cream. The term "ripple" in ice cream manufacture and consumption is thought to have originated in the United States where it was used to denote any type of ice cream ribboned through with coloured and flavoured syrup.[1] Raspberry ripple has been a popular variant ever since.[2][3]

In popular culture[edit]

Raspberry ripple, as an ice cream flavour, is mentioned by UB40 in their song "V's Version" in the 1985 album Baggariddim. Raspberry ripple is Cockney Rhyming slang for nipple, and cripple.[4][5] The second meaning was used in the 1986 Television film Raspberry Ripple [6] and the 2015 film Legend.
