I Drank The Starbucks Unicorn Frappuccino, Just In Case It Might Turn Me Into A Real Unicorn.
OMG, IT’S HERE! It seems like the whole internet has been talking about the Starbucks Unicorn Frappuccino for days, and now they have finally hit the town! Of course, as soon as I heard that the Unicorn Frappuccino would be available starting April 19th, I put it a full alert in my calendar. This was not a drill! (My full review is below the video.)
This afternoon, I put on my trusty unicorn shoes and went unicorn hunting around downtown New York City to find my dream drink and broadcast the whole thing on Cinderly’s Instagram Story. All I knew was that this magical potion was pink and blue, had sprinkles, and looked really good on Instagram. A unicorn hunt is not without drama, though. Luke, our Chief Executive Belieber, texted me a photo of his Unicorn Frappuccino. He had gotten one first! WITHOUT ME!!!! Would this cause a rip in the Sparkle Squad? NEVER! The great thing about Unicorn Frappuccinos is that Starbucks is everywhere! So anyone in the Cinderly Sparkle Squad (our fun insiders group on Facebook) can drink one. Even if we are miles apart, when we drink the Unicorn Frappuccino, it will be like we are hanging out right next to each other. That is the power of unicorn lovers. Obviously.
Back to the hunt! I marched over to my nearest Starbucks, and had to wait in a long line of people who were NOT ordering Unicorn Frappuccinos. What the glitter?!!! Hello, what else would you drink today? This is no time for regular coffee, people! The line moved quickly, and when I asked the barista if they had Unicorn Frappuccinos, he said, “Oh yes, I’ve been making them all day.” He also said I had to order at least a grande, and then wrote “Fairy Boss Mother” on my cup. I KNEW this drink was made for me!!!!
After just a few minutes, my beautiful Unicorn Frappuccino was ready. I took it outside to enjoy, just in case it immediately transformed into a real unicorn. How awkward would that be to grow a full unicorn horn in the middle of Starbucks? All those people drinking regular coffee were not prepared.
What does the Unicorn Frappuccino taste like? It tastes like pink ice cream with a Sour Patch Kids edge. It tastes pink and blue, and like how smoothies used to taste before everyone started drinking green juice, when smoothies were dairy drinks with a side of fruit. It tastes like what would be served in the waiting room at the entrance to Fairyland. It tastes exactly how I hoped it would taste!
But….would it turn me into a real unicorn?
Sadly, after five big sips, I did not turn into a unicorn. It has now been over 20 minutes since my last sip, and I am still not a unicorn. Ergo, the Starbucks Unicorn Frappuccino is definitely a unicorn-themed drink, but NOT a drink that transforms you into a Unicorn. Sorry if you were hoping for more.
I hope you run out right now to Starbucks for a Unicorn Frappuccino and think of all the cool people in our worldwide Sparkle Squad. I am sitting here drinking my Unicorn Frappuccino, thinking of you. Sparkle Squad unite!
