WaPo Review: Starbucks Unicorn Frappuccino

Melanie Wong | Apr 20, 201710:06 AM     1

" . . . When a news release identifies a drink’s component parts by its colors, rather than its flavors — well, that’s a pretty telling detail. And sure enough, it is vibrant and fun. But what flavor is 'pink?' Pink is the flavor of Lisa Frank trapper keepers and strawberry milk. What does sour blue powder taste like? Like Jolly Ranchers, and shame. I guess there’s some mango in there, although it’s overshadowed by a mouth-puckering sour flavor and immediately forgotten in the aftermath of a long-lasting, tongue-coating Robitussin aftertaste. . ."

Review | Starbucks’ Unicorn Frappuccino tastes like sour birthday cake and shame

The long-rumored drink, released in participating stores nationwide Wednesday, is only available until April 23.
