Starbucks calls shifting-color drink a 'Unicorn Frappuccino'

Starbucks calls shifting-color drink a 'Unicorn Frappuccino'

This morning the coffee conglomerate unveiled the Unicorn Frappuccino, hopping on the food trend that's taken Instagram by storm. I checked in the mirror just to be sure.

A lot of the reactions in the #unicornfrappuccino hashtag are adorable-people seem to really love and identify with our mythical medieval horned horsey friends, and if this drink brings them joy, I'm glad. It makes me want to curl up in a ball and hibernate until Tom Brady retires from the National Football League at age 53.

This isn't the first unicorn coffee drink on the market.

But some Twitter users were a little more scathing about the concoction. Maybe next time, Starbuck geniuses. Well, let me tell you, lover of satire reviews, it is exactly what you would think. Gothamist staffer Dave Colon described the taste as "melted Italian ice", perhaps picking up on the mango flavor that was indeed evident.

Those who tried the Unicorn Frappuccino on Day 1 fell into a number of camps when rating the taste, experience, and their deepest feelings.

However, instead of chucking the beverage, I stirred the Frappuccino and hoped for a transformation.

OIC backs strike of Palestinian prisoners in Israel
The prisoners also demand to have periodic medical checkups and to increase the number of visits by the International Red Cross. Israel has built almost all of its prisons inside Israel rather than in the occupied territory.

But it doesn't end there, once your tongue becomes accustomed to the sweet, mango taste, the Unicorn Frappucino changes the game. It's called "sour blue drizzle".

We're obsessed and we're totally NOT going to check the calorie count.

It's early. I haven't had breakfast yet. Mixing together the drink and the whipped cream creates nearly a creamsicle flavor.

What's the newest and most well liked on the top-secret Starbucks menu? It's appearing through April 23 or until supplies last.

Butterbeer Frappuccino that gets the right consistency with whole milk, and by adding 3 pumps of caramel syrup, 3 pumps of toffee nut syrup with caramel drizzle to top it off makes the list of fan favorites.
