The day started out as any other Wednesday morning, when all of a sudden social media blew up with the magic and sparkle of the new Unicorn Frappuccino from Starbucks. As I scrolled through instagram Unicorn dust filled my timeline! The drink is definately the prettiest drink out there. It's a pink blended drink (Vanilla syrup and mango syrup) with a Blue white chocolate mocha sauce lining the inner frame of the cup. The drink is then topped with whipped cream and magical blue and pink sour unicorn dust sprinkled atop. No doubt this drink is pure beautiful magic in a cup visually but how does it measure up with your taste buds?
My girls and I decided to put the unicorn drink to the test, to see if it's worth all of the hype! One thing we all agreed upon was the beauty! The drink is very pretty! As my daughter Jesa described, "its just too pretty to drink!" My daughter Jaylah dove right into the drink and said it reminded her of the Vanilla Bean drink...that was until her taste buds had gotten acquainted with the extremely sour Unicorn dust that was sprinkled on top of the drink. As for myself, it was a bit too sweet for me and I am not a fan of anything sour. I decided to allow my youngest daughter Jisele to take a couple sips and she enjoyed it! The sourness didn't seem to give her much grief at all!

While the drink has overall not been a fan fave due to taste it sure is visually! The drink is undoubtedly beautifully crafted by the baristas however, it is an "acquired taste" or maybe not so acquired at all! For the sake of being adventurous, I recommend trying it so that you can join the rest of us! Nevertheless, even if it was a drink that was on the menu permanently, it wouldn't be a drink I frequent. Did you feel magical after you had a taste of the magical Unicorn Frapp?
