Starbucks sells many drinks throughout the year to find which are most loved by the consumers. Last year, they released a limited-time “Cherry Blossom Frap.”
But this limited edition “Unicorn Frappuccino” isn’t like the others. It’s the most flavorful and colorful than your average drink.
It has been described to taste “like sour birthday cake mixed with a creamsicle covered in Pixie Stix and a healthy sprinkling of despair,” according to Maura Judkis, writer for the Washington Post.
The Washington Post claims that the the drink consists of mango syrup and sour blue drizzle topped with “sweet pink powder.”
According to Starbucks, this soury-sweet cup of color-changing magic has 59 grams of sugar in its 16-ounce cup (Grande).
Gone as it came, the unicorn-fairy drink will disappear from the Starbucks menu April 23.
However, five days has been five days too long for one employee, Braden Burson, who expressed in a Twitter rant video that the demand is too high for the drink and it is very stressful on the baristas.
The 19-year-old claimed he’s “never been so stressed out.”
From my personal experience, it was not something I would ever pay money for ever again.
After this drink returns to the magical land it came from, the rest of us will go back to our macchiatos.
