The New Starbucks Unicorn Frappuccino Is Total Magic (Photo)
It's here, ya'll. It's really, truly, finally here!
If you've been keeping up with online foodie news at all (or just happen to know a tween or two), you've probably heard that "unicorn"-themed foods and drinks have stolen the "rainbow"-themed crown and are now all the rage -- which is probably why the mega-popular coffee chain Starbucks decided to cash in on the trend and debut its very own Unicorn Frappuccino.
Take a look at this beauty:
The blended beverage is only a limited time offering, and can be purchased at participating Starbucks stores in the U.S., Canada and Mexico from April 19 through April 23 (and that's just while supplies last, folks). So if you don't scamper down to your local Starbucks as soon as the doors open, you might not get to taste the splendor that is this magical drink.
So what does it taste like?
According to the press release, the Unicorn Frapp features a mixture of sweet pink powder blended into a creme Frappuccino with mango syrup as the base, which is then layered with a sour blue drizzle. The entire concoction is finished with vanilla whipped cream (yum!) and a sprinkle of sweet pink and sour blue powder topping.
The whole thing sounds like a legitimate fairytale for the taste buds, and wouldn't look so bad on an Instagram feed, either.
What's more, the Frappuccino comes with a spectacular feature sure to delight consumers: It actually changes colors!
"Like its mythical namesake, the Unicorn Frappuccino blended creme comes with a bit of magic, starting as a purple beverage with swirls of blue and a first taste that is sweet and fruity. 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."
Personally, I can't wait to see this thing in action. What do you think about the new drink?
