Starbucks barista 'stressed' over Unicorn Frappuccino

Starbucks fans are getting fairy-dusted by the new Unicorn Frappuccino but what's actually in the pink, sparkly drink? After stirring, the drink changed into a pink color and became much tangier tasting, reminiscent of sour Jolly Ranchers.

I was told the Unicorn Frap had the sugar of three Snickers bars in it.

The colorful drink debuted Wednesday and is only available through Sunday, prompting many to rush to their nearest Starbucks to order one.

Burson said he hadn't heard from the company as of midday Thursday.

They are not here for Unicorn Frappuccinos.

Even with the tart undertones, the drink was sickeningly sweet. According to Starbucks, "magical flavors start off sweet and fruity transforming to pleasantly sour." Hmm.

I am a Starbucks customer and appreciate they now offer coconut and almond milk to their latte choices and the drive thru in times of desperation.

Colorado barista Braden Burson posted a video on Twitter complaining that the drink was hard to make. 'But today I need to rant just a little bit.

Yokosuka-based reporter Tyler Hlavac, who usually isn't a fan of the coffee giant's expensive and sugary offerings, said he was surprised that the American Cherry Pie Frappuccino wasn't overly sweet. While the pink-and-blue concoction may be every basic girl's dream come true, the drink itself is quite the nightmare for baristas everywhere. A swirl of blue syrup circles the sides of the cup and adds an extra hint of tanginess.

"Good thing she's not diabetic!"

"I feel like in 10 years there will be a report from Starbucks saying that it causes cancer", Menos said.

Would I get this again? Just a few more days!

The first sip, however, is overwhelming in a different way. But as far as a treat for the day, it definitely puts a dent in your calorie count.
