3 lessons from Starbucks’ ‘Unicorn Frappuccino’ By Beki Winchel | Posted

Burson, who said the new pink-and-blue drink "tastes like a Sweet Tart", filmed the video in his auto.

The Unicorn Frappuccino galloped into Starbucks cafes this week, and nothing will ever be the same.

It seems the expectant mother passed on getting a second frappuccino for herself, and based on the reviews of the drink, we can't say we blame her (and can't imagine it would help with the whole morning sickness thing). By swirling the drink, yu can "reveal a color-changing spectacle of purple and pink". It's got pink powder, mango syrup, sour blue drizzle and all sorts of other stuff.

Comments rolled in across the internet remarking on just how bad the drink actually tastes.

Turns out, unicorns are hard to corral in Northwest Indiana. I have never been so stressed out.

Braden Burson, a barista in Colorado, went on a YouTube rant about how terrible the drink is to make, according to The Washington Post. "It's got everything but coffee in it", he said. "I have unicorn crap all in my hair, on my nose".

He then launches in to a massive tirade about what demands for the Unicorn Frappuccino has done to him. "Throughout the year we offer Frappuccino drinks that celebrate the flavors of the season and are routinely available for a limited time, but we'll always have tasty flavors to enjoy", the company said.

"I have never made so many frappuccinos in my entire life, and my hands are completely sticky", he complained.

Noticeably, the drink also has 59 grams of sugar, which is equivalent to about 15 teaspoons.
