Magical Goodness in Starbucks Unicorn Frappuccino
20 Apr 2017
Yes, this is for real. Starbucks has come out with a Unicorn Frappuccino Blended Drink. It makes sense since Scotland’s beloved animal, the unicorn, was honored on National Unicorn Day, April 9, 2017. The drink is a pink, purple and blue mix of creamy sweet with a hint of sour magic. 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 magical drink to see if it lives up to all the hype – and maybe snap an Instagram-worthy pic too!
