Barista Goes On Unicorn Frappuccino Rant

April 20, 2017

It seemed like everyone, and their mother's brother's sister's cousin's teacher tried Starbucks' new Unicorn Frappuccino yesterday. If you were on any form of social media, your feed was probably filled with photos of friends posing with the pink, blue, and purple concoction offering up their reviews. 

And of course, we had a little taste test yesterday because we wanted to see what all the hype was about too. 

Sheri and I weren't fans. T-Bone and Tony, the hitman from our sister station WFNZ seemed to like it and even said they'd order it again. I sure wouldn't. It didn't have any coffee or caffeine and it was full of sugar. Now I am not about to be the food police because I have seen lots of people condeming those that are choosing to try the drink for making such an unhealthy choice. If you want to try it and you want to drink the whole thing, so be it. 

All the hype over this new pretty drink had Starbucks locations all over busier than normal. One Barista took to twitter to go on a Unicorn Frappuccino induced rant. 

For Brandon the Barista's sake and the growing obesity epidemic in the US, I sure hope the coffee giant doesn't decide to put this fairytale like beverage on its normal, everyday menu!
