Your daily Starbucks trip is about to get more colorful. While it’s been rumored for months, the coffee giant is finally set to add the once-secret Unicorn Frappuccino to the menu. According to reports, the drink will officially become an option for customers starting today, but it will only be available through Saturday.
The Unicorn Frappuccino seems to be tailor-made for Spring with its beautiful pink and blue colors, but what does it actually taste like? While you may think it is raspberry or blueberry flavored because of the color, it’s actually made with mango syrup mixed with a sweet pink powder. That’s then combined with a sour blue powder topping, and topped with vanilla whipped cream, for the unicorn horn, and a bit more sweet pink and sour blue topping. What’s more, the company says the drink changes color and flavor as you swirl it around.
So how does it taste? Well, according to one online reviewer, not that great. “The drink is good for any kid who loves sour candy and has underdeveloped taste buds," the reviewer writes. “The drink is just a hot mess with a cute appearance.”
