Purple ice cream is like a Unicorn Frappuccino for people who don’t want to wait in a long Starbucks line

I think it goes without saying that we are OBSESSED with Starbucks’ Unicorn Frappuccino. But now, we found something new to satisfy all our unicorn cravings. Yup, purple ice cream is like a Unicorn Frappuccino, according to a story from ABC7 in New York. We think the ice cream’s especially great for people who don’t want to wait in a long Starbucks line for the unicorn drink creation. Plus, maybe some baristas will get a break from making Unicorn Frappuccinos if people flock to Soft Swerve in NYC to get purple ice cream instead.

Okay, let’s take a look at this delicious new sweet treat that is making even ~more~ of our unicorn dreams come true.

One word: YUM. Also, could the purple cone be any more photogenic?!

At Soft Swerve, the purple ice cream with Fruity Pepples and marshmallows is the most popular, Cosmopolitan reported.

All right, is it just us, or do you LUV the color-coordinated nails as much as we do?! But, back to business. If you don’t want purple, you CAN get other ice cream colors, too.

You can find the colorful ice cream in NYC’s Chinatown. It was created by Michael Tsang and Jason Liu, who say they were inspired by their upbringing in Chinatown, reported ABC7 in New York.

You may be wondering: What makes the purple ice cream purple?! Ube, which is a purple yam.

Some people think it tastes like white chocolate, according to Cosmopolitan. Other ice cream flavors include matcha and black sesame.


Can’t decide? You can always mix and match!

You can also go with friends and try each other’s cones!
