The Unicorn Frappucino: a Mystical Mistake

When I heard Starbucks had a Unicorn Frappucino, I was more than intrigued. I mean, a Frappucino and unicorns!? What more could you want?

Y'all, this drink was beautiful. It was colorful and had pink and blue "fairy dust" atop luscious whipped cream. My heart wasn't ready.

It started out so strong, too. It tasted like sherbet blended with a Creamsicle®, summer and childhood memories. The amount of nostalgia was insane.

Then, it all went real sour, real fast. According to Starbucks, “Magical flavors start off sweet and fruity transforming to pleasantly sour.”

“Pleasantly sour”? Starbucks, please. Why would you hurt me this way?

Honestly, the sour blue ruined the drink for me. The more I swirled and tried to get the “magic” to happen, the more it poisoned the rest of the drink. Suffice it to say, the blue ribbons twisted into the drink did not earn it a blue ribbon in the taste department.

My conclusion: the Unicorn Frappucino was worth a try. I was curious, and I wanted to see what all the hype was about.

But curiosity killed the cat, and gave it a wicked sugar headache.
