UnicornFrappuccino2 Sometimes I Just Want to be a Unicorn TRAVEL

2017 seems to be dominated my unicorn themed everything. Personally this makes me extremely happy as I love unicorns. People are finally discovering the beauty of a unicorn. A mythical creature associated with rainbows and glitter.

When Starbucks announced that they were going to release a Unicorn Frappuccino, I was thrilled and drove to the nearest Starbucks… a little to early. The unicorn themed frappuccino is available from April 19-23rd. After waiting a few more days, I went to Starbucks again on the release day and got my own to try. I don’t know how I feel about it. The drink is beautiful with enough sugar to kick start my early journey to diabetes heaven yet I was left disappointed. I wanted magic, rainbows, and glitter.

Below is Starbucks’ description of the frappuccino:
“The flavor-changing, color-changing, totally not-made-up Unicorn Frappuccino. Magical flavors start off sweet and fruity transforming to pleasantly sour. Swirl it to reveal a color-changing spectacle of purple and pink. It’s finished with whipped cream-sprinkled pink and blue fairy powders.”

Even though I didn’t enjoy it as much as I would have liked to, it’s worth to try at least once. My cousins went the day after I did and most of the Starbucks were already sold out of the ingredients, but they managed to hunt one down.

While I was disappointed by my Unicorn Frappuccino, I was elated to find that there is a place in Fresno that sells Unicorn Macarons. Sweet Lyfe Boba Bar located by Fresno State sells them for $2.50. They pair well with the unicorn themed boba drinks and are so cute to hold. Much cuter than my attempt at making unicorn donuts a couple of months of ago.
While I failed at making unicorn donuts, I managed to be successful at making unicorn noodles. Pictured below is the unicorn bowl that assembled without the miso beet sauce.
