Barista's rant over demand for Unicorn Frappuccino

Starbucks fans are getting fairy-dusted by the new Unicorn Frappuccino but what's actually in the pink, sparkly drink?

Baristas then layer in a sour, blue drizzle, top the concoction off with whipped cream, and then sprinkle on pink powder (which is sweet) and blue powder (which is sour).

In the last few days, everyone's Instagram and Facebook feeds have been clogged with a magical creature people can't get enough of. Probably not. The Unicorn Frappuccino may be mythical looking, but it is packed full of sugar and a little too sweet for my taste.

This goes to show that the Starbucks Unicorn Frappuccino is basically a swoosh of ice, milk, and a mango base, loaded with lots of food color and sugar. The UB Commons Starbucks employees joked they were "creating magic" every time they had to make one.

The Jimmy Kimmel Live host told his audience that the drink was an "abomination" that "looks like a windbreaker from the '80s" and that it is "only available through April 23, or until someone dies from drinking it, whichever comes first".

"The elusive unicorn from medieval legend has been making a comeback", the company said. The Unicorn Frappuccino is no different than cheap mood rings that seem perpetually stuck on an ugly brown or yellow color.

Starbucks' description of the beverage left me skeptical. "Kids sugary cereal", said taste tester Julie. ". Now Starbucks is taking the trend to a new level". "The more swirl, the more the beverage's color and flavors transform".

"I feel like in 10 years there will be a report from Starbucks saying that it causes cancer", Menos said. "I couldn't get more than a tall".

"It doesn't taste like anything", she said.

The drink's bright colors and flavors might look nearly radioactive, but the only health risk lies in its sugar and calorie content.

Raising his voice to a somewhat histrionic scream, Burson continues: 'I have never made so many Frappuccinos in my entire life, my hands are completely sticky, I have unicorn crap all in my hair and on my nose.
