Starbucks debuts Unicorn Frappuccino

"I need to rant just a little bit", Burson said in the video before launching into a full-on tirade against the pink and blue swirled treat.

Starbucks released on their website that the beverage is in fact as unique as a unicorn, it will only be available at select locations and for a few days.

The vibrant frap's ingredients include sweet pink powder, mango syrup and a sour blue drizzle - and it's topped with whipped cream and sweet pink and sour blue powder. "So, it makes me wonder if they weren't thinking about unicorns as like sunshine and rainbows, but as scary mythical creatures that might stab you with their horn". It starts purple but once you give it a stir, it changes to hot pink and the flavor goes from tangy to tart.

"The elusive unicorn from medieval legend has been making a comeback", the company said.

"Starbucks' magical new frapp is what dreams are made of", as a Snapchat news story puts it.

It's not the first time Starbucks has jumped on a craze.

The internet has lost its mind over the limited-edition Unicorn Frappuccino - and apparently so have Starbucks baristas. The beverage, which doesn't contain coffee, is caffeine free.
