The first commentary on the Reddit the post had over 250 upvotes, and the dreaded drink might not surprise people. Frappuccinos are clearly one of the most complex drinks you can order at Starbucks, and there’s a reason baristas hate limited-edition Frappuccinos. Expectations are high and the time required to achieve them is high. Of Starbucks website, Unicorn Frappuccino is flavored with cream and made with mango syrup, then topped with whipped cream and sour powder.
A Starbucks employee spoke about his experience with the Unicorn Frappuccino, saying the supplies to brew the drink only lasted around six hours. The drive-thru was so long it blocked traffic and people were even in tears after the drink was gone. However, this employee said that it was also the day they met their fiancé, so there is a happy ending for them. But overall, the baristas apparently agreed this Frappuccino was awful, with one person saying, “Don’t give me nightmares.”
While it can be interrupted (and it looks like it’s for the best!), If you insist on discovering the taste of Unicorn Frappuccino, you can make one yourself with our copy of Unicorn Frappuccino recipe.
