Here’s What That Starbucks Unicorn Frappuccino Really Tastes Like

Here’s What That Starbucks Unicorn Frappuccino Really Tastes Like

The Daily Meal staff tried out the colorful, sweet-and-sour new drinks from Starbucks: Here’s our honest review

By now, you’ve surely seen your social media feeds and morning coffee runs littered with giant cups of shockingly pink-and-purple Starbucks concoctions. The Unicorn Frappucino has quickly cemented itself as an iconic (if short-lived) part of Starbucks history. And although they’re decidedly unpopular among disgruntled Starbucks employees, we decided to take the technicolor plunge and have a Daily Meal staff tasting of the Unicorn Frappuccino.

Here are our unfiltered thoughts on the sweet-and-sour colorful drink:

“This tastes unlike anything I’ve ever tasted before… I really don’t need any more.”

“It’s vaguely sweet and kinda dull, but at least it’s Instagrammable.”

“It’s really horribly blended and tastes like liquid Warheads.”

“Like crushed-up Sweet Tarts and cotton candy.”

“I got a headache just from having a few sips of it.”

“It’s like tasting a page out of Lisa Frank’s notebook… It’s my childhood!”

Among five editors, we were unable to finish the syrupy concoction, which we all agreed was more for show than for actual consumption.
