The unicorn Frappuccino is real, and it's coming to Starbucks this week

It's topped off with vanilla whipped cream and a sprinkle of pink and sour blue powder. In its press release, Starbucks says the sparkly drink is "made with a sweet dusting of pink powder, blended into a crème Frappuccino with mango syrup and layered with a pleasantly sour blue drizzle".

Starbucks is hopping on the unicorn-craze with its limited edition "Unicorn Frappuccino" blended drink. The talk started last Wednesday, according to Food & Wine, when a Reddit user uploaded a (now deleted) photo of blue dust to the site, captioned as "Unicorn frapp topping".

One Starbucks barista who posted the drink on Instagram, said that the flavor reminds him of a too sweet mango smoothie.

Ending days of social media speculation over whether Starbucks would be offering a "Unicorn Frappuccino", the coffee company on Tuesday confirmed that it would indeed be offering the brightly hued, coffee-free sweet drink.

What does the drink actually look like?

Recently, the coffee chain officially added the viral "Pink Drink" - a popular item from its "secret menu" - to its official beverage line-up. Sorry, UK and Australia, the myth-inspired beverage is only available at participating stores in the US, Canada and Mexico from April 19-23. "The more swirling, the more the beverage magically transforms!" A 12-ounce size contains 280 calories.
