Starbucks To Serve Up 'Unicorn Frappuccino' For A Limited Time

Initial rumors about Starbucks' Unicorn Frappuccino emerged on Reddit, where some confused baristas shared photographs of incoming stock they didn't recognize. At first the Unicorn Frappuccino looks like it's purple with swirls of blue. "It is finished with vanilla whipped cream and a sprinkle of sweet pink and sour blue powder topping", the company said of the drink.

It's only available at Starbucks from April 19-23.

Starbucks fans are already obsessed with the chain's latest - and perhaps strangest - creation: the Unicorn Frappuccino. "The more swirling, the more the beverage magically transforms!"

Give it a stir, however, and the drink's color changes to pink.

NEW YORK (AP) — Starbucks is calling a limited-time beverage that changes colors and flavors with a stir of the straw a "Unicorn Frappuccino". A 16-ounce drink with whipped cream has about 450 calories, 16 grams of fat and 65 grams of sugar.

So far, people are pretty hyped about Starbucks's new concoction.

The blend of passion fruit, coconut milk, and strawberries was a hugely popular item last summer, thanks in large part to its picture-perfect appearance, which made it a hit with social media lovers the world over. A company spokeswoman said nutritional information on the drink will be posted at Starbucks.com starting Wednesday.
