The Unicorn Frappuccino Takeover
In April, Starbucks released the vibrant and sugar-filled Unicorn Frappuccino, which instantly took over our social media feeds and our lives. The drink was made with mango syrup and a sweet pink powder swirled with a sour blue powder, and although it was only available for a week, it made an impact on the world with store lines out the door and baristas losing their minds. The Unicorn Frappuccino was a smart way for Starbucks to get in on the unicorn craze of the year, and it inspired nail art, hair dye trends, and even pregnancy announcements. As for the taste? Well, it was definitely easier on the eyes than it was on the palate. Following its success, Starbucks released more Instagram-approved drinks, like the Mermaid Frappuccino, the Zombie Frappuccino, and the Vampire Frappuccino, but so far none have compared to the madness that was the Unicorn Frappuccino.
