We might have had macarons, toast and lattes themed around the mystical creatures already, but if you thought the unicorn food trend had reached peak, think again. Unicorn frappuccinos have landed and whipped the internet into a frenzy.

Blended creme with mango syrup and topped with vanilla whipped cream with a sprinkle of Sweet Pink and Sour Blue powder topping, the blue and pink shades of the drink changed to purple when they’re swirled and the flavour evolves from sweet and fruity to tangy and tart, according to the Starbucks press release.

Fans of all things unicorn related are already raving about the drink on Twitter.
