(WWJ) – Coffee, it is not — a new pink drink coming soon at Starbucks is causing a buzz online.
Capitalizing on a recent surge in popularity of colorful unicorn-themed foods and beverages, Starbucks will be serving up a color-changing, flavor-changing drink for five days only: April 19-23, while supplies last.
In a media release, Starbucks says the “Unicorn Frappuccino” blended crème beverage 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.
“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,” the company claims. “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.”
It’s unclear yet if the unusual concoction will taste good (or gross), but there’s a lot of talk about the drink on social media.
