Starbucks Debuts The Unicorn Frappuccino

The Unicorn Frappuccino is here

The finishing touches are vanilla whipped cream and a sprinkle of sweet pink and sour blue topping. The blended beverage starts off as purple with blue swirls but changes to pink as it is stirred.

Pleasant and sour aren't two words that usually go together but, hey, neither does pink powder, mango syrup and blue drizzle. So, don't expect every store to know what secret menu drink you are ordering.

Starbucks is making unicorns a reality for a short time only this month.

Starbucks fans will be able to buy the drink beginning Wednesday, and it will be available until the end of the week while supplies last.

The oddball Starbucks drink came about as way to ride the unicorn food craze, a social media-fueled fad that involves decorating everything from toast to cupcakes in bright colors.

Social media is already going nuts over the drink, where baristas preparing for the frozen-mouthed frenzy have been posting photos of their work. Even if the tangy and sweet flavor isn't for you, it will be the ideal addition to your Instagram feed. It's called "sour blue drizzle".

I admit I'm a simple coffee soul who considers an iced latte as my most adventurous order, but this just sounds ... colorful? A 16-ounce drink with whipped cream has about 450 calories, 16 grams of fat and 65 grams of sugar. I asked Jason, the barista, when I got to the front of the line, much to the distress of the guy behind me in line-he wanted his caffeine fix ASAP. And I don't blame them for looking, honestly, you can't really look away from this thing.

Starbucks' Unicorn Frappuccino was created to be an instant Instagram sensation - but it looks nothing like Starbucks led customers to believe.
