The Starbucks Unicorn Frappuccino Is Real, And It's Here For A Limited Time

By Aimee Lutkin

There were rumors swirling that we'd soon be blessed with a new Instagramable beverage from Starbucks based on one of the Internet's favorite animals. No, not a Cat Cappuccino. It's a Unicorn Frappuccino, and it's 100% real:

The special flavor is only going to be available from April 19-23, so you better get in line ASAP. Magic is fleeting! 

In a statement to USA Today, Starbucks described the flavor thusly: "Like its mythical namesake, the Unicorn Frappuccino blended crème comes with a bit of magic, starting as a purple beverage with swirls of blue and a first taste that is sweet and fruity. But give it a stir and its color changes to pink, and the flavor evolves to tangy and tart. The more swirl, the more the beverage’s color and flavors transform."

tl;dr: it's sweet.
