Starbucks Unicorn Frappuccino Review

Hey collegiettes, did you get a chance to devour the latest Instagram trend yet? Well, I have always been a fan of the Starbucks Frappuccino. So, I had an excuse to satisfy my sweet tooth cravings! Here are my thoughts on it:

Aesthetic Appeal: 10/10

If you know me, I love all things color, and it spices things up. Sometimes, I feel a little less guilty as I am gulping down the drink. I can say, “At least it is pretty!”

Stain-Free: 10/10

With a colorful drink like this, you would think your tongue would turn blue or pink afterward. Guess what? There is no evidence you had a Unicorn Frappuccino. I tried this drink at 1:30 pm, and I began my shift at 2:00 pm. I checked myself, and I was pleased.

Taste: 8/10

I like how the first few sips tasted like a regular Starbucks Frappuccino, and then it hits you by surprise with a rush of a sour taste. It is like a sweet-tart, and I have to give Starbucks credit for being able to make such a drink that changes color and taste. 

Overall: 7.5/10

I don’t dislike the Starbucks Unicorn Frappuccino, but I also don’t love it. I will drink it, but it will not be a drink that I would get on a daily basis. Every once in a while, I will surprise myself with a colorful drink. But for now, I will stick with the Vanilla Bean, Green Tea, and Double Chocolate Chip Frappuccino. If you have not jumped on the bandwagon yet, I encourage you to go try it out for yourself. After all, you only live once, and it is here for a limited time. Lastly, it is not as bad as you think, and be sure to thank your barista for making the drink possible!
