If you’ve been to a Starbucks anytime in the past week, you may have set your eyes upon the Unicorn frappuccino, the new iced coffee concoction from the Seattle-based drinks behemoth. Depending on who you ask, the Unicorn frappuccino is either a great example of Starbucks expanding their menu of delicious drinks, or it’s an unholy, sugary abomination that simply should not be. Hardly surprising when it looked like someone had blended about a dozen pixies together in a food processor and then proceeded to squeeze whipped cream on top.
All over the United States, people rushed to their nearest Starbucks to get a taste of this unusual ice-cold sensation, but the limited-edition frappuccino was only made from April 19 to April 23, and has since been discontinued. If your tastebuds didn’t get a chance to sample a Unicorn frappuccino then fret not; the demand for the Unicorn may have inadvertently birthed a new type of mystical iced coffee, and this one might just be better than the Unicorn Frappuccino anyway.
