Unicorns are having a moment right now, so it's honestly not much of a surprise that after rumors about a unicorn-themed Frappuccino from Starbucks swirled last week, the drink was officially announced today, April 18. What's in the Starbucks Unicorn Frappuccino, you ask? Giggles, sunshine, and magic, obviously — plus a few other ingredients. The drink will hit participating stores in the United States, Canada, and Mexico starting tomorrow, April 19, for a limited time only — through April 23, to be exact. Unicorns are busy, people. They don't have time to bow to your frappuccino whims at all hours of the day or night.
The Starbucks Unicorn Frappuccino truly is made of magic. Case in point: its changing flavors. According to a press release, it starts off purple and tastes sweet and fruity, but if you give it a stir, it becomes pink, tangy, and tart. Keep stirring and be amazed at its changing color and flavor.
The unicorn obsession is nothing new — what with unicorn beauty products, unicorn milkshakes (omgyes), and unicorn hair tutorials, we've pretty much hit peak unicorn — but the coffee giant's take on it certainly isn't to be missed. And since the Starbucks unicorn drink isn't here to stay, it'll be worth savoring the moment. It's not often a color-changing, flavor-changing, magically delicious, unicorn-inspired coffee beverage hits the market. (Starbucks: Go big or go home!)
