Starbucks Introduces Flavor-Changing Unicorn Frappuccino

20 April 2017

Stirring the drink somehow subtracts all the blue from it?

Whoever made this drink apparently thinks unicorns are dark and nihilistic, like in the "Charlie the Unicorn" videos.

NEW YORK (AP) — Starbucks is calling a limited-time beverage that changes colors and flavors with a stir of the straw a "Unicorn Frappuccino". Stripes and swirls of sour blue drizzle line the inside of the clear cup, giving the drink its two-tone appearance. but that's just the start of the magic. The finishing touches are vanilla whipped cream and a sprinkle of sweet pink and sour blue topping. As you continue to stir, the flavor keeps on evolving into new surprising tastes, while the color patterns alternate.

A deep bellow was the noise heard across America when Starbucks released its long-rumored Unicorn Frappuccino in participating stores nationwide Wednesday.

Starbucks introduced their new Unicorn Frappuccino for a limited time.

Coachella crowds urged to keep cellphones safe
A man who stole over 100 phones from revellers at Coachella music festival was caught by people using the Find My iPhone feature. Cops then arrived and arrested Henao with a backpack containing more than 100 cellphones, police said.

Starbucks' Unicorn Frappuccino definitely sounds mythical, but a growing body of evidence suggests that the buzzed-about beverage will be in stores on or around 19 April 2017.

Before Starbucks officially announced the drink, there was speculation on the internet that it was coming.

Others have said that the drink is "prettier than it tastes", "a hot mess with a cute appearance", and you don't have to speak Spanish to understand this one-word review: "No".

This Metro editor had a chance to try a Unicorn Frap one day early. I do see pink and I do see purple, but they're close in shade and there's no "wow" moment where it looks like someone repainted the drink's colors. Gen Z, a group that grew up with social media, is poised to surpass the millennial generation in size, and may be more influential than their slightly older peers.

That's not to say that millennials, generation X, baby boomers and the silent generation won't want to buy a unicorn Frappuccino, however.
