The Latest from Starbucks: Unicorn Frappucinos
The world’s most popular coffee chain is featuring a new drink, the unicorn frappuccino, until April 23, 2017. There’s only a couple more days left to try the sugary fairytale drink, so make your dreams come true by fulfilling your craving for a sugar fix.
If a unicorn took the form of a drink, it would look exactly like a unicorn frappuccino. On the outside, colors of hot pink and electric blue swirl to become magically appealing. Mystical pink fairy dust also coat the drink, atop the fluffy whip cream, which extend the unicorn-like theme.
It’s not just a pretty in pink drink and a prime Instagram opportunity; it is also a party for your taste buds. The blended cream frappuccino combines flavors of tangy mango syrup, whipped cream, colored sugar powder, and sour blue drizzle to make it a sweet sensation. Both tart and fruity, the drink reminds me of a mix of popsicles and sour skittles. With the weather getting warmer, this is the perfect drink to enjoy on a hot summer’s day in the sunshine.
For those of you who are concerned about the health of this drink, you should know that it is caffeine free. Surprisingly, it is also lower in calories than you would expect. A tall unicorn frappuccino made with whole milk and topped with whipped cream contains 280 calories, 11 grams of fat and 39 grams of sugar.
Even though unicorns aren’t real, this magical drink definitely is and will be sold for only a few more days. You have until April 23 to see the myth transform into a reality yourself, so make sure to go to the Starbucks nearest to you and try the unicorn frappuccino. Even if the tangy and sweet flavor isn’t for you, it will be the perfect addition to your Instagram feed.
