Listen. I don’t usually like to latch onto a trend on day three, but my friend dragged me into Starbucks and what else was I supposed to do?
I do have to admit that I felt ashamed of my actions. There was a giggle of teenage girls also in Starbucks, and not a single of them walked out of the shop with a unicorn drink.
We tried really hard to get a cute selfie with our unicorn drinks. The wind was not participating.
It’s definitely as pretty in real life as it is on the internet. I was a little mad that the barista didn’t add more of the blue to mine, but it was enough. I loved the pink and was especially in love with all the glittery stuff on top of the whipped cream.
The flavor was really just as boring as everyone has said. It definitely tastes like a creamsicle, but without the orange flavor. It’s just cream. And then while you’re drinking it, you get tinges of sweet and sour. There is no actual flavor to point to, which made the drink itself quite bland.
I was excited to get to the bottom of the drink so that I could at least enjoy the whipped cream.. But the colorful sprinkles on top were very sour. It was hard to enjoy the cream while cringing.
Fortunately, the topping was the prettiest part so at least there was a lot of enjoyment to be had from looking at it.
All in all, I would not recommend actually purchasing/consuming the unicorn frappuccino at Starbucks. However, go ahead and click on hashtags and look at pictures, because it’s very beautiful, colorful, and hey, UNICORNS.
