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.
