Less than a week after the infamous “Pink Drink” made its way off the secret menu, Starbucks is blowing fans’ minds with the introduction of Unicorn Frappuccinos.
The unicorn food trend isn’t exactly new. From hot chocolate to grilled cheese, the edible rainbow movement has only continued to grow in 2017. With all the other specialty frappuccinos the coffee giant has offered, it’s kind of surprising they didn’t jump on the unicorn bandwagon sooner.
Rumblings about this whimsical drink started as most internet rumors do, with a Reddit post. After trolling Instagram, Twitter, and through confirmations from Starbucks Partners, it was confirmed that unlike an actual unicorn, this drink is indeed real.
It seems that ‘bucks lovers are having a hard time agreeing on the taste of this limited edition drink, which is probably because the official name of this fantastical frapp is “The Flavor Changing Unicorn Frappuccino.” Most reviews of the magical drink liken the taste to tropical Skittles. According to Starbucks Barista, @TheChubbyBandit, the frappuccino is made with “a mango creme frappuccino with a couple of pink powder scoops, sour blue syrup drizzle, and whipped cream sprinkled with blue and pink powder.”
Through the power of social media, perhaps this Insta-worthy Unicorn Frapp could follow in the Pink Drink’s footsteps to secure its own spot on the Starbucks Official Menu. Until then, be sure to grab your Unicorn Frappuccino from April 19-23.
