The unicorn-themed food trend may soon come to a screeching halt if this rumor is true. Apparently, Starbucks is planning to add limited-time drink to their menu called the Unicorn Frappuccino. There is quite a bit of evidence to suggest that this is actually happening.
According to Cosmopolitan, Super_hiro_pope wrote the following comment on his Instagram post (which appears to have been deleted):
“it’s a cream base frappuchino with mango syrup, white mocha, and a pink and blue sprinkle, that’s a lil tangy.”
A conversation in this Reddit thread from hellabummed provided another perspective on the flavor:
Tastes just like those tropical skittles
Pictures of the topping are also turning up:
Apparently, the Unicorn Frappuccino will be launching on April 19. Recipe cards were given out on April 14th, but baristas were instructed not to open the powders until today, April 17th. This would explain why the drink looks different in the two photos above.
Speaking with Mashable, Starbucks made the following comment:
“We’re still working our Frappuccino magic and don’t have any details to share at this time.”
So yeah, Unicorn-themed beverages won’t be as novel as they once were after Starbucks gets a hold of it, but I’ll be dammed if this drink doesn’t look delicious.
