Starbucks Announces Unicorn-Themed Frappuccino!
Well, unicorns may be fictional, but the new unicorn-themed Frappuccino is real, and it’s spectacular.
Starbucks announced that the new colorful drink will be available at participating stores from April 19 through April 23. The company said in a statement:
“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. 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.”
Wondering what it tastes like? Well, according to a taste tester’s review on Instagram:
“It looked like this drink would have a blue raspberry or cotton candy taste, but nope! It tastes like a mango lassi! Yum! Creamy mango frappuccino with sour sprinkles. It’s definitely worth trying if you’re into fruit smoothies. It’s a nice change from their coffee-flavored frappuccinos, plus it’s pretty!”
Check it out!
Unicorn Frappuccino @starbucks . Official release date is April 19th, but you can find certain starbucks stores making these. Our first thoughts upon receiving this drink is oh geez what did we get ourselves into? It’s super colorful and artificial looking. I was scared it was going to have the peeps oreo artificial aftertaste, but I was wrong. It looked like this drink would have a blue raspberry or cotton candy taste, but nope! It tastes like a mango lassi! Yum! Creamy mango frappuccino with sour sprinkles and a blue sour syrup (if you don’t care for sour things.. exclude the syrup & sprinkles ). It’s definitely worth trying if you’re into fruit smoothies. It’s a nice change from their coffee flavored frappuccinos, plus it’s pretty! . . #starbucks #socal #unicorn #frappuccino #unicornfrappuccino #food #foodie #foodporn #foodcoma #foodphotography #foodgasm #foodstagram #nom #nomnom #nomnomnom #eatingfortheinsta #hungry #sweet #sweettooth #instafood #seriouseats #yummy
