The Unicorn Frappuccino was said to be just a rumor, but it's totally true, and it's going to be served for a limited time. This thing is crazy, you almost don't want to drink it!

If this tastes as good as it looks, then we may never get a chance to even get through the line to give it a try. It's hard to believe it's technically a coffee, given the ingredients and tart flavor.

Starbucks says:

the Unicorn Frappuccino blended crème is made with a sweet dusting of pink powder, blended into a crème 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.

If that's not enough to peak your senses, here's what they are saying about what their combination of flavors in this drink can do:

...starting as a purple beverage with swirls of blue and a first taste that is sweet and fruity. But give it a stir and its color changes to pink, and the flavor evolves to tangy and tart. The more swirl, the more the beverage’s color and flavors transform.

This is a limited time drink that starts tomorrow and ends on April 23rd, while supplies last. Hopefully it's not a bait and switch where they give each location enough for just a few of them just to get people through the door, but we'll see!

 



Of course I got the unicorn frappuccino ✨ A post shared by Laura Cohen (@lauragailcohen) on

My best guess is that all the St. Cloud stores will be participating in this, you'd be nuts not to. The 3 area Starbucks are located at:

  • 120 Lincoln Ave SE, St Cloud, MN 56304 (inside Target East)
  • 2860 Division St, St Cloud, MN 56301 (at Division Place Shopping Center)
  • 124 2nd St S, St Cloud, MN 56301 (at Marketplace Shopping Center)

My final thoughts on this...I like coffee to taste like "coffee". Some people love all the different foo-foo drinks, and this is totally for those people. I won't get one just because I wish to keep my man-card. If my teenage son wants to try it, that's fine, I'll probably ask for a sip to taste just to say I tasted it.
