(language)   A Lisp variant for the LISP Machine, with object-oriented features, developed by D. Weinreb and D.A. Moon <moon@cambridge.apple.com> in 1980. "Classes" were called Flavors in the language.

Though the Flavors design was superseded (notably by the Common LISP CLOS facility), the term "flavor" persisted as a general synonym for "class".
