Starbucks calls shifting-color drink a "Unicorn Frappuccino"

Starbucks calls shifting-color drink a

Coffee giant Starbucks is catching, saddling and riding this eye-popping food fad with the introduction of a limited Unicorn Frappuccino blended beverage.

Honestly, this drink seems made for Instagram. The Unicorn Frappuccino drink is "magic", the company says, because it turns from purple to pink when you stir it. Starbucks fans will be able to buy the drink beginning on Wednesday, and it will be available until the end of the week while supplies last. The blended creme will start purple with swirls of blue, with a taste that is "sweet and fruity" but after a quick stir its colour will change to pink along with a more tart and tangy flavour. Stirring the drink somehow subtracts all the blue from it?

Unlike the mythical unicorn, this drink is actually real.

So, is it good? "The more swirling, the more the beverage magically transforms!"

Judging from early photos, the change might not be as stark as Starbucks promises - but the drink is certainly boasting some bold colors. One described it as a "7-Eleven Slurpee Frappucino" and another said that the counterbalance of sweet and sour made it taste "almost like fresh fruit".

'This drink is basically pure sugar. and it's so pretty!' wrote another. Think again. From rainbow grilled cheese sandwiches to unicorn hot chocolate, this magical culinary club is getting another member: the Starbucks Unicorn Frappuccino. Or just 'gram it and then toss it, because we all know that's why you're really ordering it, anyway.
