As for me, I'm going back to my regular coffee drinks after this unicorn experience. According to the company's press release, the drink starts off purple with swirls of blue and has a sweet and fruity taste.
Advising drinkers to give the beverage a stir for a magical transformation, Starbucks revealed, "Its color changes to pink, and the flavor evolves to tangy and tart".
Although Starbucks says the drink will be available Wednesday, it appears some coffee-lovers have already been able to find a unicorn. What does sour blue powder taste like?
The Unicorn Frappuccino will only be available from April 19 to 23.
Tim Tebow homers twice, strikes out 5 times in 1st series
The former Gators QB has already hit two home runs in this very young minor league season, with his second coming on Sunday. For the season, Tebow's 12 official at-bats have yielded 2 hits, 3 runs, 5 RBI and 4 strikeouts.
After making our way through a crowded Times Square, we finally got our hands on a coveted Starbucks Unicorn Frappuccino! Days ago, baristas on Reddit's Starbucks page sent the Internet all a-tizzy by posting pictures of mysterious pink and blue powders, followed by snaps of full-on, whipped-cream-topped, questionably colored coffee creations. "Now Starbucks is taking the trend to a new level with its first Unicorn Frappuccino® blended beverage".
"Adding a beverage that looks like a blenderized doughnut to the menu means many people will question the drink's nutritional value", notes Business Insider. There's no video evidence yet, because the drink hasn't officially launched, but if that's true, it really is magical.
Launching this week at Starbucks locations across the country, the Unicorn Frappuccino is a unique blend of oddly-purple mango and all the sour in the entire world. 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.
Overall, it was a very sugary, creamy drink. The Unicorn Frappuccino was out in a flash, with pure counter placement precision and a lethargic shout, "Gage..." Creating a beverage that changes color and flavor is a tall order.
