Starbucks’ Competitors Are Hilariously Roasting The Unicorn Frappuccino

The new Unicorn Frappuccino from Starbucks has been taking over the Internet in big ways this past week, despite how unhealthy it may be and even if baristas are protesting against its creation. Oh, and they taste pretty crappy, too.

With the trendiness of this sugar bomb, other companies, many of whom are rivals to Starbucks, have been clapping back with savagery at the beverage over the internet. We’ve curated some of the funniest for you to fall over laughing at.


Yeah, we’re with you on that, A&W. Most of us at the office agree that Starbucks’ version, at least, tastes like sweet and sour sadness.

Burger King

I’d rather have the Froot Loops Shake than the Unicorn Frappuccino, because if I’m gonna drown in sugar, I want it to actually be enjoyable.

Peet’s Coffee

Peet’s went straight for the jugular on this one.

I don’t believe in unicorns, especially after Starbucks’ new drink, that’s for sure. If that’s what unicorns taste like, I’ll pass.

The Coffee Bean

Starbucks is seriously catching some L’s and Coffee Bean is definitely down to grab a few W’s off of that.

Philz Coffee

I mean, the Unicorn Frappuccino is literally meant to be Instagrammed. I haven’t met anyone actually down with the taste of the Frappuccino, so I’m with ya here, Philz.

The End Brooklyn

You know you messed up when one of the original Unicorn drink makers is calling you out, Starbucks.

I couldn’t think of a better company to “End” the insult party with.
