Unicorns are 100% real, at least for the next few days at Starbucks!
After recent speculation on social media, Starbucks has confirmed that it’s offering a limited-edition Unicorn Frappuccino starting April 19 at participating locations nationwide.
Unicorn Frappuccino changes colors, flavors
So, what’s in this magical beverage?
It features a dusting of pink powder, blended into a crème Frappuccino with mango syrup and layered with sour blue drizzle. The drink is finished with vanilla whipped cream and a sprinkle of sweet pink and sour blue powder topping.
Here’s where the magic comes in: Starbucks says the Unicorn Frappuccino changes flavors and colors as you stir it.
“Like its mythical namesake, the Unicorn Frappuccino blended crème comes with a bit of magic, starting as a purple beverage with swirls of blue and a first taste that is sweet and fruity. But give it a stir and its color changes to pink, and the flavor evolves to tangy and tart,” Starbucks said.
On Instagram, one barista said the Unicorn Frappuccino is good for “any kid who loves sour candy and has underdeveloped taste buds.” He gave it a 3/10.
So guys, on April 19th, Starbucks is launching the all-new Unicorn Frappuccino®. Here's an in-depth review. A mango creme frappuccino with a couple of pink powder scoops, sour blue syrup drizzle, and whipped cream sprinkled with blue and pink powder. What could be better? About anything on the menu (except that Slightly Sweet Chai crap that we launched a couple of months ago). The first sip I took when I tried it was great. It reminded me of a mango smoothie. Then, I took another sip; a strawful of sour blue goop coated my mouth in the process. The drink is good for any kid who loves sour candy and has underdeveloped taste buds. The drink is just a hot mess with a cute appearance. Rate: 3/10
From pizza to grilled cheese, unicorn and rainbow-themed foods and drinks are a real hit on social media right now — and the trend shows no signs of ending soon.
Remember, though, the Unicorn Frappuccino is for a limited-time only. The last day to get one at Starbucks is April 23.
