Starbucks calls shifting-color drink a "Unicorn Frappuccino"

The Unicorn Frappuccino is here

"Like its mythical namesake, the Unicorn Frappuccino blended crème comes with a bit of magic, starting as a purple beverage with swirls of blue and a first taste that is sweet and fruity", the company claims. It's topped off with vanilla whipped cream and a sprinkle of pink and sour blue powder. Find it at participating Starbucks stores in the U.S., Canada and Mexico. "Once only found in enchanted forests, unicorns have been popping up in social media with shimmering unicorn-themed food and drinks".

Unicorns are all the rage this year, and Starbucks has brewed its own creation to take advantage of the phenomenon.

According to the coffee giant, it's a "flavor and color-changing creation", made with a dusting of pink powder blended into a mango creme Frappucinno and layered with a sour powder topping. "The more swirling, the more the beverage magically transforms!"

Here are five things to know about the new Unicorn Frappuccino.

Bruins to face Senators in first round of playoffs
The Toronto Maple Leafs, at 40-26-15 and 95pts, can alter the playoff seeding when they face Columbus Blue Jackets at 6:00 p.m. The Leafs got on the board early in the middle frame, van Riemsdyk scoring the first of his two goals on the night.

Starbucks announced the eye-searing frappuccino on Tuesday.

And while Starbucks has said that the drink will only remain on the menu for a limited period, there is a slim chance that it could make a more permanent return in the future.

The blend of passion fruit, coconut milk, and strawberries was a hugely popular item last summer, thanks in large part to its picture-perfect appearance, which made it a hit with social media lovers the world over.
