Starbucks’ Unicorn Frappuccino

There has been a lot of hype over Starbucks’ Unicorn Frappuccino, so obviously, I had to try it.

The nice barista at Starbucks in Laurel Village made it for me yesterday, a day before it’s official release, so that I could try this magical, rainbow treat.

It definitely looked magical and was really exciting to get. The pink unicorn dust on top of the whipped cream was very sour but it was nicely offset by the whipped cream beneath it. As I began drinking it, I was reminded of cotton candy – but better. It was very sweet and I guzzled it up!

Unfortunately, I was less pleased with the bottom half. I don’t know what it tasted like, but it wasn’t my favorite. I think it was too sour.  It did change color when stirred though, which was cool. I think the biggest enticement of this drink is how pretty it is, and in that regard, it did not disappoint!

If you want to try it out for yourself, it’s available at Starbucks beginning today through the 23rd only, so hurry!
