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 crÃ¨me 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.

‼️NEW #UnicornFrappuccino from @Starbucks available TOMORROW (4/19)‼️ We got inside access to this new magical drink with flavor profiles going from sweet to sour as you sip! 🦄: A pink, mango, creme Frappuccino with sour blue drizzle, sprinkled with pink and blue topping. #UnicornFrappuccino
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 crÃ¨me 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.
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.
