Magical Goodness in Starbucks Unicorn Frappuccino

Magical Goodness in Starbucks Unicorn Frappuccino
20 Apr 2017

Yes, this is for real. has come out with a Blended Drink. It makes sense since Scotland’s beloved animal, the , was honored on National Day, April 9, 2017. The drink is a pink, purple and blue mix of creamy sweet with a hint of sour . I knew I had to try this new drink.

When I walked into Starbucks, just like the mystique around the unicorn, there were no signs or banners introducing the new drink. Instead customers were quietly talking about this intriguing new concoction. The drink will only be around a couple days (April 19-23) while supplies last and then the magic will be gone.

My first thought on the new Unicorn Frappuccino was that it was as beautiful to the eye as I expected. The drink has swirls of color and is topped with whipped cream and ‘fairy dust’ sprinkles. I would describe the flavor as similar to Sweet Tarts and Sour Patch candy – sweet but with a bit of sour too.

You will definitely want to check out this drink to see if it lives up to all the hype – and maybe snap an Instagram-worthy pic too!
