Getting caught up in the Unicorn Frappucino frenzy

The Starbucks drink is a trendy concoction of sweet pink and sour blue ingredients, topped with whipped cream and sprinkled with "fairy powder" - whatever that is.

I've been catching glimpses of the Unicorn Frappuccino's pink and blue glory posted all over social media, but something about the blue drink just brings me back to some bad experiences with Blue Hurricane cocktail mix (which is a story for another day). If you come down on the side of severe vitriolic hatred, thats okay, because lots of Starbucks baristas feel the same way. The drink is available for purchase from April 19-23.

"Here at Starbucks, your enjoyment is our goal", the commercial says.

US vows to keep up pressure on Syria after missile strikes
He also said that the USA missile airstrikes were an effort to dispirit the Syrian people and Army and to embolden the terrorists. Neutral countries should investigate whether a chemical weapon was used , and if used, its source should be found, Rouhani said.

The Unicorn Frappuccino is taking newsfeeds by storm, presumably because it was invented for the sheer objective of filling Instagram with cups of multi-colored froth that make Tumblr-enthusiasts squeal and cynical 20-somethings roll their eyes so far into the backs of the head, they go blind. Colbert tried the Unicorn Frap for the first and possibly only time live on the air, and his physical reaction wasn't very telling as to the quality of the drink. The dusting powder on the top is a mix of sugar and food coloring. One called the drink a "poison-infused abomination".

The frappuccino has one-and-a-half times the daily recommended amount of sugar, which is between 24-36 grams.

Another person made a YouTube video ranting about how hard it is to actually make the drink and that it can be messy.
