As the Deseret News reported, the Unicorn Frappuccino is a cream-based drink mixed with pink and blue powders that give it a mango-like and sour taste.
One Starbucks barista, who requested their name be withheld, told us it's "literally so many steps and ingredients" and that once it was announced, "everyone was like 'I'm putting in my two weeks'".
The purple and blue beverage is supposed to change flavors and colors, becoming more pink and going from sweet to tart.
Starbucks launched its Unicorn Frappuccino Wednesday, and most Northwest Indiana locations sold out almost right away. Katy Perry, she of many multi-colored hairstyles and a technicolor shoe line tasted the Frappuccino rainbow-and unlike when she kissed a girl, she didn't like it.
If you were procrastinating on trying Starbucks' Unicorn Frappuccino, you might be out of luck.
The late-night host added that if the Instagram-worthy drink isn't up your alley, then he has another drink that might be: "The F-k-it-ccino".
"Please don't get it!" the barista from Colorado pleaded in a YouTube video that's since been deleted.
Kelly posted a video of the work in progress, and honestly, she pretty much nailed the unicorn hair trend. "I have never been so stressed out in my entire life".
By now you are aware of, and have probably formed a very strong opinion on, Unicorn Frappuccinos. "My hands are completely sticky".
The beverage has become a popular item on the Starbucks menu and in one instance, someone ordered a crate full of the drink.
In fact, not only is Burson not getting fired, but his boss reportedly wants to sit down with him to talk about his ideas and how Starbucks can improve their process for both customers and employees.
