The unicorn trend has been taking over the internet — from hairstyles to birthday cakes, people can’t get enough of the multi-colored phenomenon. Now, Starbucks is joining in with their own specialty drink! Officially! Available starting today until the 23rd, the Unicorn Frappuccino is supposed to be a concoction of pink, purple, and blue that combines sweet and sour flavors. Basically, it’s the soul of HelloGiggles in icy beverage form.
According to Starbucks, the grande Frappuccino contains 410 calories when topped with whipped cream and dusted in pink and blue flavor powder. Starbucks calls the drink, “flavor-changing, color-changing, totally not-made-up Unicorn Frappuccino.” When the drink is stirred, the colors and flavors mix to create a completely new taste. The limited time Frappuccino has the internet abuzz and there is no shortage of opinion.
The HelloGiggles team decided to try for ourselves to see what all the chatter was really about. Plus, like, how could we not! Here’s what we thought of the much-anticipated, magical Frappuccino.

“I honestly was expecting this to taste like overly sweet candy and I was surprised that it tasted more like Jamba Juice than a sticky sweet Starburst. I’m not sure if I’d ever buy one, but at least it matched my makeup today!”

“I liked it! It tasted like a mix between Skittles and strawberries.”
