Review: Starbucks Unicorn Frappuccino

The Starbucks Unicorn Frappuccino is a big deal because it gained popularity on social media and LITERALLY the day it was released all I saw on my Instagram was pictures of the Unicorn Frappuccino from every food blogger out there.

Of course I had to go to Starbucks and see what all of the excitement was about - and taste what a drink made with the 'finest unicorns' really tastes like!  I'm not joking since it was even on the sign at the local Starbucks - see?

So I get the drink in a tall size at Starbucks because I don't need anything larger than that, and WOAH - it truly took a few sips for me to figure out what the drink tasted like.

I also had a few other people taste the drink and let me know their thoughts.  Some people thought it tasted like cotton candy.  Others thought it tasted like fruity cereal milk.  I thought it tasted like bubble gum, but I can't stand the flavor of plain bubble gum.  It's kind of gross to me.

But really, this isn't something that you'd order normally when you go to Starbucks.  It's just there if you want to order something 'fun' and different.  Also, there's a ton of 'unicorn' beverages and food circulating menus right now, so Starbucks must have felt like they needed to jump on that bandwagon.

  • Only get specialty Starbucks drinks like the Unicorn Frappuccino if you want to take an Instagram photo.  It was a mix of bubble gum / fruity cereal milk, and not something I'd typically order to get my caffeine fix.  Too sweet and sugary isn't my thing at Starbucks.
