Starbucks Calls Shifting-Color Drink a 'Unicorn Frappuccino'

As seen in the photos, the (possible) Unicorn Frappucino is pink and blue and comes topped with whipped cream and is topped with the magical pink or blue powder and optional sprinkles. Made with only the finest rainbows!

I agree with my fellow editors that the frap is aesthetically pleasing, but I'm not sure I could really drink it again. When I swirled it, it just moved around the blue drizzle on the outside of the cup. We know where we'll be all weekend.

The review concluded that Starbucks' Unicorn Frappuccino "tastes nothing like unicorn", and included a photograph of a purple-pink and blue concoction.

Despite its name, The End's drink contains no coffee, but instead is made with ginger, lemon, coconut milk, blue green algae, maca root, vanilla, dates, turmeric and pomegranate powder. I was told it had mango and some sour candy flavors.

Personally, I'm not a big fan of huge coffee drinks in the morning. As you mix, the flavor changes from sweet to sour - but mostly it tasted like liquefied tropical Skittles.

A "tall" Unicorn Frappuccino has 280 calories, which isn't world-ending. I managed to finish a quarter of each Frappuccino, and I immediately began spiraling into a sugar high - my hands were shaking as I wrote this article.

With that said, they would've had to pry me off the ground with a forklift if I drank a large one of these (or venti, or whatever stupid word Starbucks uses). Yes, it was very sugary, but I actually enjoyed it in small quantities. Given the multitude of tastes (and the sugar content in the syrup), that's not entirely surprising. "The more swirling, the more the beverage magically transforms!" And even though they released a drink that looks like a liquefied Grateful Dead T-shirt the day before 4/20, the holiday for marijuana smokers, Starbucks' spokespeople are adamant that the timing is coincidental.
