All Of The Internet’s Best Reactions To The Controversial Unicorn Frappuccino

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.

"You will have but a half-life, a cursed life, from the moment the blood touches your lips." Also it tastes like candy. #unicornfrappuccino

Some reject the cost (and the calories):

Everyone’s tried something called a Unicorn Frappuccino and all I have is this stupid five dollars.

Starbucks Unicorn Frappuccino has 76 grams of sugar.

Coke has 39g.

Let that sink in.

Others wonder what would happen if the roles were reversed.

I wonder if somewhere there is a unicorn drinking a human frappuccino…bet it tastes like Netflix and debt.

Some judged the name and aesthetic of the trendy beverage.

My credit card was declined and when I called Visa they asked me to verify that I was a 39 year old man buying a unicorn frappuccino.

"Unicorn Frappuccino" is slightly better than the original name "Lisa Frank Diabetes Swirl."

And others still rejected the elitist attitude that people are too good for unicorn deliciousness.

Wait, you think the unicorn drink is dumb? How interesting and sophisticated you must be! Please; guide us, the foolish masses

You have a little over eight hours left to decide for yourselves.
