Starbucks barista posts online rant over new Unicorn Frappuccino
Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past couple of days, there’s no doubt that you haven’t seen, heard of or even tried Starbucks’ newest drink.
Dubbed the “Unicorn Frappuccino,” the latest Starbucks craze is a cream-based Frappuccino with a sweet and sour pink and blue cream swirl topped with what the company calls “fairy powder.”
The drink actually starts out purple with a sweet and fruity taste and changes to pink and tart after it’s stirred, mixing in a blue drizzle. (The jury is still out on whether it tastes as good as it looks.)
The hype surrounding the drink has been very real, and as a result, people swarmed to Starbucks the day it was released so they could get their hands on the “Instagram-worthy” concoction.
However, there are some people who can’t wait to see this drink disappear: Baristas.
Braden Burson, a 19-year-old barista from Colorado, posted a series of Snapchat videos on his Twitter account that all relayed a simple message: Stop buying Unicorn Frappaccinos, please!
“I have never made so many Frappuccinos in my entire life,” Burson said in the video. “My hands are completely sticky. I have unicorn crap all in my hair and on my nose. I have never been so stressed out in my entire life.”
If you’re like Burson and already tired of seeing this trend all over the news, don’t worry: Starbucks said it is only available until Sunday.
