I drank Starbucks' Unicorn Frappuccino and now I sparkle

It's purple. It's pink.

Made from 100% rainbows (or at least that's what the display read above the register), the unicorn drink definitely looks like something a mythical unicorn would sip on.

To me, the Starbucks Unicorn Frappuccino tastes like drinking blended sour sweets. And even though they released a drink that looks like a liquefied Grateful Dead T-shirt the day before 4/20, the holiday for marijuana smokers, Starbucks' spokespeople are adamant that the timing is coincidental. While the drink has a certain visual - or at least 'grammable - appeal, the reviews of the actual taste include the phrases "horrible sour syrup" and "just like those tropical Skittles".

On cue, social media continued to spread the good news. However, I couldn't get a venti unicorn frappucino.
