Starbucks barista has meltdown over Unicorn Frappuccino

Adjust Comment Print

I nearly went to Starbucks for the limited-time drink dubbed the Unicorn Frappuccino.

And many got the drink but didn't like it after all.

In the last few days, everyone's Instagram and Facebook feeds have been clogged with a magical creature people can't get enough of.

The Unicorn Frappuccino will be available through Sunday, April 23 at participating Starbucks stores in Canada, the US and Mexico.

The drink, which was released Wednesday, is made with pink powder blended into cream Frappuccino with mango syrup and layered with a sour blue drizzle, USA Today reported.

Other baristas and unimpressed Starbucks fans alike were also quick to express their disdain for the new drink.

The idea is that the drink will change colors when stirred, and contain both sweet and sour flavors.

Have you tried the Frappuccino?

Burson, who said the new pink-and-blue drink "tastes like a Sweet Tart", filmed the video in his auto. "I mean, it's not like I created unicorns, so I can't be too mad about it", she told the Times.

Venezuelan protests against government leave three dead
Rights group Penal Forum said more than 500 people were arrested in relation to Wednesday's protest and 334 remained in detention. Her boyfriend and mother have both said she was shot down by government supporters chasing her on motorbikes after a protest.

The sweet treat is Starbucks' foray into the unicorn food craze.

And just like the real-life unicorns, the Unicorn Frappuccino has been reduced to urban folklore and mythology.

I emailed Starbucks to ask them whether these colors were chemicals. Once the sour (mostly) faded, the Unicorn Frappuccino mainly made me wish I'd gotten a straight up mango one instead.

Burson said he hadn't heard from the company as of midday Thursday.

"It's a great drink".

That said, Starbucks customers have been happily showing off pictures and videos of their Unicorn Frappuccino experience.

Thankfully these majestic drinks are on a limited run, but it's unclear if your favorite barista will make it through to the end.

I dug a little deeper and learned the sugar amount is twice as much as an adult needs in one day!
