Something called a Unicorn Frappuccino is a real thing that actually exists now, but only for a limited time to maintain the overall theme of unicorns and rareness or whatever. The limited edition Starbucks drink, which seems tailor-made for Instagram sipping posts, is described as a "flavor-changing, color-changing, totally not-made-up" beverage. According to Starbucks, the included flavors range from magical to "pleasantly sour." For the individual below, however, the arrival of the Unicorn Frappuccino has inundated his daily life with acute stress.
"The new Unicorn Frappuccino came out today," Braden Burson, who says he's a Starbucks barista, said in a Mashable-spotted video first shared to Twitter Wednesday. "For those of you who don't know, the Unicorn Frappuccino is a mango-based creme frappuccino, no coffee. It basically has sour stuff in the middle. It tastes like a SweeTart." The tweet and video have since been deleted.
Due to the popularity of the drink online, Burson explained, launch day was hectic. "I have to tell you, PLEASE DON'T GET IT," Burson said, exhibiting his frustration with an increase in volume. "I have never made so many frappuccinos in my entire life." Due to the high volume of orders, Burson said he now has "unicorn crap" all in his hair and on his nose, in addition to being plagued with sticky hands. "If you love us as baristas, don't order it!" Burson said.
The plight of this particular guy aside, the reaction to the Unicorn Frappuccino has indeed been mixed:
For those who've yet to take the Unicorn Frappuccino plunge, today's the perfect day to get safely and responsibly high and give it a shot.
