The Newest Starbucks Frappuccino Is ~Unicorn~ Themed

The unicorn trend is *everywhere* right now, so when we saw rumblings on social media yesterday that a new unicorn-themed Starbucks Frappuccino might be coming out, we were pretty psyched. Looks like the rumors were true, because the go-to coffee spot made all our dreams come true and announced today that yes, the unicorn-inspired Starbucks Frappuccino is very, very real. (BTW, here's more on why the rainbow unicorn trend is the pick-me-up you need.)

So what does this whimsical treat taste like, exactly? According to the Bux, "the Unicorn Frappuccino blended crème is made with a sweet dusting of pink powder, blended into a crème Frappuccino with mango syrup and layered with a pleasantly sour blue drizzle. It is finished with vanilla whipped cream and a sprinkle of sweet pink and sour blue powder topping." Or, in the words of a lucky tester's review on Instagram: "It looked like this drink would have a blue raspberry or cotton candy taste, but nope! It tastes like a mango lassi! Yum! Creamy mango frappuccino with sour sprinkles. It's definitely worth trying if you're into fruit smoothies. It's a nice change from their coffee-flavored frappuccinos, plus it's pretty!"

Starbucks also says in their announcement that this special drink actually changes colors as you stir it, as if it weren't Instagram-worthy enough already. The magical drink will be hitting stores across the U.S., Canada, and Mexico on April 19th and will be around until April 23rd, or until supplies last. Since this is technically a limited-edition treat, it's probably best to go get your unicorn fix sooner rather than later. As for the nutrition info, that's still a mystery, but based on the wacky colors and vanilla whipped cream, we think it's safe to say you'll probably want to count this one as an indulgence—one that's totally worth it.
