The Starbucks Unicorn Frappuccino is supposed to change colors and flavors. (Starbucks)
What’s 39 grams of sugar (for a tall), changes colors and flavors and will only be available from April 19 to 23 at Starbucks (while supplies last)?
Why, the Unicorn Frappuccino, that’s what.
This horse drink of a different color, a limited edition Starbucks beverage, takes its inspiration for the glut of unicorn and rainbow-themed food on social media.
Starbucks describes the creation, which in its official photo is vaguely pink, as “a sweet dusting of pink powder, blended into a creme Frappuccino with mango syrup and layered with a pleasantly sour blue drizzle.” Yes, there’s also whipped cream and a (“sweet pink and sour blue powder”) topping.
The drink is supposed to start out a purplish hue with blue swirls and a sweet, fruity taste. The more it’s stirred, the more the Unicorn Frappuccino will apparently morph into tart, pink beverage.
Starbucks told Business Insider that the tall, or smallest size of the drink, as made with whole milk and whipped cream, contains 39 grams of sugar (same as a can of Coca-Cola) and 280 calories.
