People are freaking out over Starbucks Unicorn Frappuccino
Everyone is talking about the limited time only Starbucks Unicron Frappucino blended drink. Starbucks is hopping onto the unicorn-trend with its limited edition colorful drink. The Unicorn Frappucino is available April 19 through April 23 at participating stores across the country. And for some, the drink is like a dream come true, made with a pink powder blended into cream Frappucino with mango syrup and layered with a sour blue drizzle. For others, the drink isn't at the top of the list, but it looks cool. And like its mythical namesake, the Unicorn Frappuccino blended drink also comes with a bit of magic, starting with the purple beverage with swirls of blue and a first taste that is a bit sweet and fruity. The best part is that with a stir of the drink the color changes to pink and the flavor evolves to tangy and tart. The more you swirl, the more the drinks color and flavor transform. This new trend in drinks is sure to catch on.
The unicorn is a legendary and mythical creature that has been described since antiquity as a beast with a single large, pointed, spiraling horn that grows from its forehead. The unicorn was depicted in the ancient seals of the Indus Valley Civilization and was mentioned by the ancient Greeks in accounts of natural history by various writers, to include Ctesias, Pliny the Younger, Strabo, and Aelian. The Bible also describes an animal, called the re'em, which some versions translate as a unicorn. In European folklore, the unicorn is a creature that is often depicted as a white horse-like or goat-like animal that has a long horn and cloven hooves sometimes with a goat's beard.
Starbucks has an incredible selection of unique and delicious beverages. With so many options on the drink menu, it's not always easy to pick just one. Starbucks also has a secret menu that includes some creative and fun concoctions that you have to specially request because they do not appear on the standard menu. One popular Starbucks drink is the Cherry Blossom Frappuccino. This Frappuccino drink from Japan is inspired by the lovely Japanese Sakura tradition. In this pink Frappuccino, there are no cherries. The drink is a blend of cream and strawberries mixed with some white chocolate and matcha drizzle, covered with whipped cream and matcha sprinkles on top. Another popular drink is the Vanilla Latte. The Starbucks vanilla latte is a sweet drink combined with caffeine. Another drink that you might consider is the Soy Chai Tea Latte. And although you can order a Chai tea latte with any milk, this drink is especially delicious with soy milk because soy milk perfectly compliments the warm spices in the Chai tea. This is also a good choice for people who are trying to stay away from dairy products.
