This is happening.
Starbucks is jumping on the unicorn-craze by releasing the Unicorn Frappuccino, a shimmering purple and blue coffee drink that turns pink when you stir it. On Tuesday, the company announced the debut of its colorful – and highly anticipated – beverage.
According to the coffee chain, the Unicorn Frappuccino is made with pink powder blended into cream Frappucino with mango syrup and layered with a sour blue drizzle. In a statement, Starbucks said: “Like its mythical namesake, the Unicorn Frappuccino blended crème comes with a bit of magic, starting as a purple beverage with swirls of blue and a first taste that is sweet and fruity. But give it a stir and its color changes to pink, and the flavor evolves to tangy and tart. The more swirl, the more the beverage’s color and flavors transform.”
It’s safe to say the new drink was tailor-made for Instagram, so it’s no wonder the Unicorn Frappuccino has already been popping up all over the social media platform. And people are obsessed!
The limited edition beverage will be available April 19 through April 23 at participating stores across the country, so you better act fast!
