What does a unicorn taste like? The more you stir, the more the flavor and the color change.
"Monstrosity might be a little harsh", I admitted early on.
This means that, unlike coffee-based Frapps, the Unicorn version has zero milligrams of caffeine. I probably wouldn't order it in a venti, but I'd treat myself to a tall once in a while.
The drink will be available for five days starting Wednesday. "I want more of that blue sauce".
Yum! Mango syrup and a pleasant sour blue drizzle? She scoops a mysterious pink powder into milk and ice and blends it up.
Now, for such a complicated drink, you think it would take an unruly amount of time to be delivered to me.
I grab my double dose of unicorn and a couple straws and head home to experience this madness in privacy.
This also changes the flavor from a sweet and fruity one to a tangy and tart taste. BOOM. Sour Blue Drizzle sneaks its way to your tastes buds to even out the sweet. The sour is the flavor that is most pronounced. It's teasing. It's fun, but there's no way I'm going to make to the bottom of this 24-ounce venti cup.
But what is this mysterious, color-changing beverage? Easter eggs, hot chocolate, cheese toasties and bagels, they're all dressed in that mixture of gentle blues, pinks and purples. The following sip was straight up mango, just as advertised, the Unicorn Frappuccino hits you with that tropical fruit taste, and it's great.
As a proponent for all things magical, I pranced half a block away to try it. Yes, it was very sugary, but I actually enjoyed it in small quantities.
A lot of the reactions in the #unicornfrappuccino hashtag are adorable-people seem to really love and identify with our mythical medieval horned horsey friends, and if this drink brings them joy, I'm glad.
