Starbucks is one of those companies that can’t really work on anything in secret without its employees leaking their plans to the internet, and that’s triply true when it involves the mythical one-horned beast known as the unicorn. And so, official confirmation is now surfacing that Starbucks is preparing to unveil the Unicorn Frappuccino on April 19th.
What is the Unicorn Frappuccino? Before recently, that was shrouded in mystery, but now Starbucks has officially confirmed that it’s bright pink and blue, mango flavored, and completely bereft of any coffee whatsoever. What does that have to do with unicorns? I’ll let the official press release (kind of) answer that question:
“Like its mythical namesake, the Unicorn Frappuccino blended crème comes with a bit of magic, starting as a purple beverage with swirls of blue and a first taste that is sweet and fruity. But give it a stir and its color changes to pink, and the flavor evolves to tangy and tart. The more swirl, the more the beverage’s color and flavors transform.”
This is going to be one of those things the internet won’t shut up about for the next week, so you might as well head up to your local ‘Bucks between April 19th and 23rd to try a Unicorn Frappuccino for yourself – and for more info, head over to Starbucks’ official press release for the drink right here.
