Yes, Starbucks is launching a magical Unicorn Frappuccino

Starbucks' Unicorn Frappuccino definitely sounds mythical, but a growing body of evidence suggests that the buzzed-about beverage will be in stores on or around 19 April 2017. Starbucks says its newest beverage not only changes colors with a stir of the straw, but flavors as well. Also, it seems to be only available for a limited time.

Unicorn-themed food has been popping up across social media lately, with everything from "unicorn" toast to grilled cheese, pastries, coffee drinks, and cocktails. Once the sour (mostly) faded, the Unicorn Frappuccino mainly made me wish I'd gotten a straight up mango one instead.

Social media has been abuzz with rumors of a new Starbucks drink for a while, and now, those rumors have been confirmed. It's all topped off with a cloud of vanilla whipped cream and a sprinkle of sour blue and sweet pink powders.

Swirls of purple and blue blended cream may look like berry or cotton candy flavors, but magically tastes like mangoes.

According to the press release, my first sip was supposed to be sweet.

Starbucks reportedly used to sell trenta Frappuccinos, but no longer does - probably because 31 ounces of the sweet drinks would be probably be pretty irresponsible. The rest of you will just have to capture and juice your own unicorn if you want one of these drinks.

A drink that changes from tangy to tart without a wand? The drinks will only be available Wednesday to April 23 - or until supplies last.
