Starbucks has released the Instagram-friendly Unicorn Frappuccino into the wild for the next few days, and it's caused more stress among some baristas than anyone thought possible.
By now you are aware of, and have probably formed a very strong opinion on, Unicorn Frappuccinos.
So, it made sense that when Starbucks debuted their Internet-breaking Unicorn Frappuccino, she found herself naturally drawn to the drink. Braden Burson, a barista in Colorado, posted a video to Twitter railing against the drinking and begging customers to stop ordering it.
"Because it's been so popular online everyone is like 'oh my gosh I need to try it when it comes out, '" he continued before shouting into the camera.
"Please don't get it!" he said in the video, which has now been deleted from his account. My hands are completely sticky, I have unicorn crap all in my hair and on my nose. I have never been so stressed out. If you want to know what it's like to make out with Tinkerbell, as Colbert so eloquently put it, then get out there now and buy one while you still can.
Good Morning America's Michael Strahan appeared to like his Unicorn Frappuccino when he tried it.
The purple-and-pink drink is "sweet and fruity transforming to pleasantly sour", according to the Starbucks website. Jimmy Kimmel spoofed Starbucks' limited-edition, pink-and-blue-swirled beverage with a commercial for his own outrageous coffee concoction. The pink is mango creme flavor (filled with artificial coloring) and the blue is sour syrup. He told The Associated Press he did not think his rant would garner that much publicity, and he was not trying to "downgrade" the beverage.
