The new drink has arrived from the world wide coffee chain Starbucks and this drink is all the hype! But what is so good about this drink?
The new unicorn frappachino is going wild but why? Well its only here for 5 days and leaves on April 22, 2017. The drink will leave all Starbucks locations.
So what is the unicorn? It is a frappachino that consists of ice, milk, frappachino syrup, whipped cream, vanilla syrup, mango syrup, blue drizzle (white chocolate mocha syrup), classic syrup, blue sour powder, and pink sour powder.
Now with all those sugar-based ingredients, you could only imagine what the nutritional facts are. Here they are. For a 16 ounce unicorn frapp it has 410 calories, 16 grams of fat, and 59 grams of sugar. For a 24 ounce unicorn it has 500 calories, 18 grams of fat, and a whopping 79 grams of sugar.
Now whats the hype? This drink is causing baristas to go crazy! They are all stressed over the hundereds of orders. What are these orders? They are all unicorn frappachinos. One barista posted a video on twitter expressing how stressful to make so many of these drinks a day.
So whats all the trouble? Well, these drinks take lots of blending, mixing, and decorating each cup to perfection. They take about 5-7 minutes to make one drink. And they use the 10 ingredients in each drink and must mix them to perfection. One worker was so stressed when he handed it to a customer he said "Here's your diabetes in a cup!"
Now whats the hype on the internet? Well, Starbucks fans are going wild. One customer went so far that since she loved the drink so much, she dyed her hair the colors of the unicorn frapp! Everyone one the internet have been posting their opinions on the drinks, and most people love it! But the reason people dont like it is because it contains so much sugar!
My opinion? I got the drink and it did take a bit of time for him to prepare my drink. The small I orderer was 4.89. The worker had stated "Yay! Another unicorn" but he ment it sarcastically.
Overall, the drink has been over-hyped but since it leaves soon, all of the stressed Starbucks employees will be relived of their pain. As it is now, the drinks will not be returning. But yea! The drinks taste good! It is like a mango with a pack of sugar and citric acid sprinkled on it. I don't think it's so good to the point that I would dye my hair in inspiration of the drink. But hey! She sure is creative for thinking of those hair colors! In conclusion it is a good drink but good thibg it won't be returning!
