The New Dragon Frappuccino Is So Fierce (Photos)
Another day, another new and unique Starbucks Frappuccino to try.
Hot on the heels of the release of the mythical and limited-time Unicorn Frappuccino comes the Dragon Frappuccino, the newest magical creature-turned-blended cold drink that you can purchase at a participating Starbucks store near you.
Basically, because the Unicorn Frappuccinos were only available for a mere few days at participating locations, and because the demand for the psychedelic drink was so massively high, many participating Starbucks stores ran out of the supplies it took to create the Unicorn Frappe for their customers, according to Hello Giggles.
In order to appease their caffeine-addicted, unicorn-hunting customers, a few creative baristas stepped up to the plate -- er, grande sized mug -- and came up with the Dragon Frappuccino as a replacement to the horned horse.
The Dragon Frappuccino looks pretty similar to the OG Unicorn edition, except it appears the sour blue flavor agent has been replaced with some sort of creamy green mixture.
The green tea Frappuccino base? Perhaps some kind of matcha? Does it even matter what it tastes like with a name that fierce and powerful?
"I apologized profusely to my barista before ordering the basic AF Unicorn Frappuccino - thankfully they were out of the ingredients and offered me something not only cooler and better tasting, but easier to make: the Dragon Frappuccino," writes one pleased Instagram user.
Have you tried either the Dragon or the Unicorn Frappuccino? Or perhaps both? Which one ended up being the best?
