Starbucks calls shifting-color drink a "Unicorn Frappuccino"

"But give it a stir and its color changes to pink, and the flavor evolves to tangy and tart". A representative from Starbucks told Fortune the drink will be available at participating Starbucks stores in the United States, Canada and Mexico from April 19 to April 23. It's the new Unicorn Frappuccino blended beverage from Starbucks.

As for its release date, the Unicorn Frappuccino is happening sooner than you think.

Starbucks' Unicorn Frappuccino definitely sounds mythical, but a growing body of evidence suggests that the buzzed-about beverage will be in stores on or around 19 April 2017. The sparkly sugar sprinkles on top are basically sour candy, he wrote, and the blue wave is more sugary syrup.

Photos have been popping up on social media all week, posted by giddy baristas who laid eyes on the new ingredients and were too excited to keep the secret.

On social media, many seemed onboard with the new drink.

In early April, rumors began circulating that Starbucks would be unveiling a magical multicolored Unicorn Frappuccino.

Recently, the coffee chain officially added the viral "Pink Drink" - a popular item from its "secret menu" - to its official beverage line-up.

However, has reached out to Starbucks for further information, and will update this story should they respond.
