'Unicorn Frappuccino' for limited time at Starbucks

'Unicorn Frappuccino' for limited time at Starbucks

Starbucks is officially on board with the popular, whimsically bright unicorn-colored food trend.

Update 1:50 p.m. Just asked Rebecca Fishbein if she'd be mad if I vomited on her desk.

They both seemed pleasantly surprised by the limited edition drink and said it was not what they expected. It makes me want to curl up in a ball and hibernate until Tom Brady retires from the National Football League at age 53.

The real question is should you buy one of these magical, mystical unicorn drinks? There's only a couple more days left to try the sugary fairytale drink, so make your dreams come true by fulfilling your craving for a sugar fix.

Personally, I think the flavor changing aspect comes when the whipped cream topping melts into the frappuccino.




First it tastes like sweet mango. It was off-putting at first, but the drink hadn't taken its form yet.

That's not to say that millennials, generation X, baby boomers and the silent generation won't want to buy a unicorn Frappuccino, however. What makes it so great is the pairing of every pure sugary candy you've ever tasted. The more it's stirred, the more the Unicorn Frappuccino will apparently morph into tart, pink beverage. The base is a crème Frappuccino with mango syrup that's mixed with a sweet pink powder. What does sour blue powder taste like?

If you don't mind parting with the whipped cream and asking the barista to substitute the whole milk with almond milk, you can reduce the calorie count to 170. "I can't deal with sibling rivalry so early".

All in all, I liked it more than I should. It's appearing through April 23 or until supplies last. This sure is a far cry from the unicorn lattes at Brooklyn's The End, which are made with blue algae and maca, and use dates for sweetness.
