Starbucks’ New Unicorn Frappuccino Impaled Online: Tastes Like ‘Hot Dog Water’

Even the baristas are stressed out over the colorful concoction

Starbucks released its newest menu item and most Instagram-able drink, the Unicorn Frappuccino, on Wednesday — but sadly all it’s probably good for is Instagram.

The much-anticipated drink is “made with a sweet dusting of pink powder blended into a crème Frappuccino with mango syrup, and layered with a pleasantly sour blue powder topping,” according to the popular coffee chain’s news release.

So you can see why everyone was excited to order the new multicolored beverage, but according to social media, all that magic tasted like a big heaping bowl of disappointment.

Or as one Twitter user put it: “Tastes like orange trident gum and hot dog water.”

Even this child, who is basically supposed to love colorful, sugary drinks, isn’t fond of the Unicorn Frappuccino.

Others were simply just put off by how unhealthy the drink is, pointing out that its sugar and fat content were overbearing.

Apparently Starbucks baristas aren’t too fond of making the drink either, just look at this stressed-out employee.

“Please don’t get it, I have never made so many Frappuccinos in my entire life,” pleads the barista. “I have unicorn crap all in my hair and on my nose, I have never been so stressed out in my entire life.”
