A new ice cream flavor celebrating the debut of Ogden's professional baseball team has fans turning blue - and green - in the face.

Farr Better Ice Cream Co. has introduced Raptor Ripple, which seems to be most popular with kids who apparently don't mind that it turns their tongues and teeth the same shades as the team's colors.That, of course, was the whole idea behind the flavor, which consists of vanilla and mint ice creams swirled with a ribbon of blue marshmallow, said company vice president Michael Farr. It took months to come up with the combination, he said.

"We wanted to create a flavor that appeals to both children and adults," said Farr. "We wanted it to be unique, something out of the ordinary, something that was new and exciting, just as new and exciting as professional baseball coming to Ogden."

The Pioneer League Ogden Raptors open their season June 17.
