This week, the already-ubiquitous unicorn trend escalated in a way no one knew was possible when Starbucks unveiled its limited-edition Unicorn Frappuccino, and the Internet, in turn, exploded.
Baristas despise the labor-intensive drink. Instagrammers are obsessed with the look (if not the taste.) Celebrities from Katy Perry to Anthony Bourdain have shared their disdain for the colorful creation.
If you haven’t yet sampled the sugary trend, today (April 23) is your final day to order one, unless the success of the drink propels it onto the permanent menu. According to the coffee giant, the drink is made with ice, milk, crème Frappuccino syrup, whipped cream, vanilla syrup, mango syrup, blue drizzle, classic syrup, sour blue powder, and pink powder.
Here is the best of the Internet on the both beloved and notorious beverage.
According to Harry Potter fans, drinking unicorns will give you a cursed life forever.
Some reject the cost (and the calories):
Others wonder what would happen if the roles were reversed.
Some judged the name and aesthetic of the trendy beverage.
And others still rejected the elitist attitude that people are too good for unicorn deliciousness.
You have a little over eight hours left to decide for yourselves.
