SOO.. we hopped on the colourful bandwagon today and tried the new limited edition Starbucks Unicorn Frappuccino!! Everyone can agree this is probably one of the most instagrammable drinks Starbucks has created; with it’s layers of pink, blue, and whipped cream topped with the same colourful powder. Now what does a unicorn taste like? According to Starbucks it’s a crème frapp with mango syrup and sour blue raspberry. First of all, who came up with this very interesting flavour combination?! Who knew unicorns could be so sour!
The drink started out with a sweet surprisingly more real than fake mango taste. Kayla did the mistake of licking the pink and blue powder on top saying it was super sour and told the rest of us not to try it, but of course all three of us did. This is where the magic seemed to run out for Kayla who mixed the whole drink together. After mixing both the blue drizzle on the side of the cup and the whipped cream into the drink, it was completely ruined. It became really really sour and no longer tasted like mango. Kayla’s reaction: “I wish I didn’t mix it. It tasted way better before.” She expected it
Caroline also had a similar opinion, she thought it was really good until she mixed it. She suggests that if you do want to mix it, don’t mix it all the way, so you can retain the mango fruity flavour with a tinge of sourness.
Sahra actually enjoyed the flavour and the sourness but found it was just a little teeny tiny bit TOO Sour. And for myself, I actually really liked the drink, I didn’t end up mixing it at all, I didn’t scrape off the blue syrup and just drank it like a normal person lol. After the first little mango sugary rush, the drink started tasting a little more flavoured, and then soon became soury. However, because I didn’t mix the frap, the magical unicorn taste remained!
So will we be drinking the Unicorn Frappuccino again?
- Kayla: Sadly nope. The drink doesn’t match the cuteness.
- Komal: I would totally get another one but because it’s only available for 3 more days, I probably will not be ready.
- Sahra: Probably not
- Caroline: I wouldn’t drink it again. If you want the taste just get a vanilla frap with a mango shot. The unicorn frap is mostly for aesthetic
Did you try the Unicorn Frappuccino? If so what were your thoughts?
