What is a Unicorn Frappuccino?
According to Starbucks – the coffee king, Unicorn Frappuccino is a “flavor & color changing creation” it’s made with a dusting of pink powder blended into a mango creme Frappuccino & layered with a sour powder topping.
Quick Fact: Unicorn Frappuccino’s color transforms from purple to pink and the flavor changes from sweet & fruity to tangy & tart when the drinks is stirred.
Unicorn Frappuccino was brought to the spot light by Starbucks but they are not the only ones serving up this mystical drink. Independent cafes have been serving this drink as well and every coffee shop has its own secret recipe for the famous Unicorn Frappuccino. In fact it was recently reported by CBSNEWS that Starbucks has gotten sued over the drink by a independent coffee shop for trade mark infringement. Sounds like the coffee king – Starbucks was not the first one to come up with the Unicorn Frappuccino idea after all. Starbucks just made the Unicorn Frappuccino one of the most popular drinks in recent history but didn’t invent it. We’ll just have to wait and see who comes on top in the lawsuit to see who actually owns the Unicorn Frappuccino.
Unicorn Frappuccino – Taste Test
The Unicorn Frappuccino can actually give its consumer a taste of different flavors in a single drink all depending on how the consumer stirs and mixes the drink with the straw. The drink can taste both sweet & sour. In our taste test the Unicorn Frappuccino tasted pretty sweet to start off with and that was without stirring it at all, but once mixed it started tasting tangy & sour and not to mention the color change. Other members on the taste test team of Unicorn Frappuccino said it tasted fruity & sweet, like mangos & cotton candy combined together. No wander it’s called a Unicorn Frappuccino. The Starbucks Frappuccino that we tested had a dusting of pink power on top with mango syrup and layered with a generous amount of sour blue drizzle. The drink was finished off with vanilla whipped cream & sprinkle of sweet pink & sour blue powder as a topping.
