This Arizona woman announced her pregnancy using a Unicorn Frappuccino

By now you are aware of, and have probably formed a very strong opinion on, Unicorn Frappuccinos.

The Starbucks at Indianapolis Boulevard and Main Street in Schererville was apparently the only location that still had the "creme Frappuccino with mango syrup and layered with a pleasantly sour blue drizzle" that's "finished with vanilla whipped cream and a sprinkle of sweet pink and sour blue powder topping".

Another barista snapped a photo of his stained hand after making the drinks all day.


Like most of us, Jimmy Kimmel was a bit confused by the coffee company's trendy treat, the Unicorn Frappuccino - so he made a decision to try his hand at making a creation of his own!

"This limited-time offering is as fleeting as a rainbow, available April 19-23, while supplies last in participating Starbucks stores in the United States, Canada and Mexico", the Seattle-based coffee shop giant said in a press release. For comparison, a can of Coca-Cola has 39 grams sugar and a Hershey's milk chocolate bar has 24 grams. The dusting powder on the top is a mix of sugar and food coloring.

One worker called it "the drink from hell", over Reddit.


"Please don't get it!" the barista from Colorado pleaded in a YouTube video that's since been deleted. "Well, I can assure you that posting Instagrams of your Unicorn Frap is not going to create any value for anyone". He begs for people to stop ordering the drink, because, according to Burson: "I have never been so stressed out in my entire life".

In a statement, Starbucks said the company will be reaching out to Burson "to talk about his experience and how to make it better".
