This insanely colorful, magical drink is none other than the much rumored about Unicorn Frappuccino from Starbucks.
This limited time offering not only changes colors while you drink it, but also changes FLAVORS, which we’ll get to in a second.
First though, you should know that it's only around for a very short period of time.
“The elusive unicorn from medieval legend has been making a comeback. Once only found in enchanted forests, unicorns have been popping up in social media with shimmering unicorn-themed food and drinks,” a Starbucks’ press release reads. “Now Starbucks is taking the trend to a new level with its first Unicorn Frappuccino blended beverage, available starting Wednesday, April 19, through Sunday, April 23, while supplies last.”
So what's actually in this multi-colored wonder?
According to Starbucks, the drink is made with a cream Frap base. It gets its extreme color from the layers of purple mango syrup and sour blue syrup. It’s then topped with vanilla whipped cream and sour sprinkle dust to help you fully embrace your inner unicorn.
Honestly…yuck, but at least it looks pretty cool.
As for it changing colors?
“Like its mythical namesake, the Unicorn Frappuccino blended crème comes with a bit of magic, starting as a purple beverage with swirls of blue and a first taste that is sweet and fruity,” Starbucks said in a statement. “But give it a stir and its color changes to pink, and the flavor evolves to tangy and tart. The more swirl, the more the beverage’s color and flavors transform.”
Starbucks employees who've tried it say it's a little bit sweet and a little bit sour.
Given they’re using colors as flavors, that really comes as no surprise.
But again, at least it looks pretty cool, which is why you'll be seeing it plastered all over Instagram for the next week.
What do you think? Are you going to head out and try it?
