Some of the Indie editors chose to try the new Unicorn Frappucino at Starbucks that will be released on the Stony Brook campus on April 19th. The drink, they tell us, is finished with "vanilla whipped cream and a sprinkle of sweet pink and sour blue powder topping".
Apparently, when you mix the drink it changes color from blue and purple to a bright pink. Starbucks says its newest beverage not only changes colors with a stir of the straw, but flavors as well. But if you're a regular drinker of Starbucks Frapps or Dunkin Donuts Coolattas (RIP) sure, strap a saddle on that unicorn and ride, baby, ride!
Really, it does not matter what sweets and medicines and emotions these coloured powders taste like: This drink only exists to be Instagrammed, hashtag unicorn emoji, hashtag magical.
Starbucks began to sell the drink on Wednesday, and will last five days until 23 April. The Unicorn Frappuccino changes color and flavor as you drink it.

Microsoft To-Do Arrives with Apps for Everyone
To-Do List arrives on Windows 10 as a universal app, so it works on both PCs along with smartphones running Windows 10 Mobile . Ever since Microsoft's acquisition of Wunderlist back in 2015, the fate of the to-do app has been hanging in the balance.
Social media is already going nuts over the drink, where baristas preparing for the frozen-mouthed frenzy have been posting photos of their work. As you continue to stir, the flavor keeps on evolving into new surprising tastes, while the color patterns alternate.
I believe I've hit my quota for Unicorn Frappuccinos in my lifetime, without even finishing one. When I swirled it, it just moved around the blue drizzle on the outside of the cup. A tall version made with whole milk and topped with whipped cream has 280 calories, 11 grams of fat and 39 grams of sugar (FDA recommends having no more than 50 grams of sugar a day). Maybe I didn't sip long enough to get to the tart part, because it's pretty uniformly sugar rush. While Starbucks' latest creation is certainly a social media marketing ploy, the coffee giant is doing nothing more than latching onto society's obsession with all things unicorn.
So should you order the Unicorn Frappuccino?
