Starbucks unicorn drink has too much sugar

TIL That 7 Krispy Kreme Doughnuts have LESS sugar than the Starbucks Unicorn Frappuccino. This announcement came as a shock to many customers since there was so little advertising done to publicize the new drink. The drink is topped with vanilla whipped cream and a sprinkle of sweet pink and sour blue powder.

In the last few days, everyone's Instagram and Facebook feeds have been clogged with a magical creature people can't get enough of.

Here's what's really unique about Starbucks' Unicorn Frappuccino, it's only available for a limited time!

The Unicorn Frappuccino is made by blending pink powder into a mango-flavored Frappuccino, which is then layered with whipped cream and pink powder on top. "But give it a stir and its color changes to pink, and the flavor evolves to tangy and tart".

Did you know @SweetFrostings has its own Unicorn Frap? Another was anxious the colorful drink would induce a diabetic coma. You can snap a picture of the drink for social media, share in a taste-test and be able to take part in this current conversation.

"Good thing she's not diabetic!"

The most hard: The S'mores Frappuccino, she said.

A local Starbucks, where the staff seemed to be in better spirits, reported it sold 211 of the colorful drinks on the first day, causing it to run out of the sour blue flavoring. The whole concoction contains a whopping 76 grams of sugar. "Kids sugary cereal", said taste tester Julie.

No amount of supposed fairy dust is worth a toothache sugar rush and 410 calories in a grande cup.
