Not so long ago, unicorns were quiet, serene, mythical creatures who galloped across rainbows, napped on clouds, and pooped glitter. Over the past year, however, unicorns have become so much more than sparkly steeds; now, they’ve become everyone’s favorite, colorful food trend. This week, Starbucks hopped on the bandwagon and unveiled its Unicorn Frappuccino, a pink, purple, and blue swirl of flavor-changing deliciousness that starts fruity and ends tangy.
According to Starbucks, “The Unicorn Frappuccino blended creme is made with a sweet dusting of pink powder, blended into a creme Frappuccino with mango syrup and layered with a pleasantly sour blue drizzle. It is finished with vanilla whipped cream and a sprinkle of sweet pink and sour blue powder topping.”
Finally we can live our best, most glittery, most 'grammable lives. But what are we to do when it’s gone? Like its sparkly, elusive namesake, the Unicorn Frappuccino is only around for a limited amount of time, from Thursday, April 19 to Sunday, April 23. But fear not. Luckily the trend has become so big that there’s no shortage of unicorn-themed food out there. Whether you’re looking for a sweet treat, a healthy meal, or just trying to get buzzed, there’s a unicorn-themed food or drink for you.
