Starbucks' Unicorn Crap-puccino

The drink that no caffeine addict would ever resort to

The Starbuck's Unicorn Frappuccino (only for sale for a limited time!) has gotten a lot of attention...probably much more attention than it's worth. Is it the colors, the mystery, or the insane amount of sugar in this drink that made people so obsessed with it? It seemed like everyone was posting pictures of their first Unicorn Frappuccino all over social media. For most of them, it was also their last. Smart move.

Supposedly, this is the recipe for the drink:

  • Crème base Frappuccino (that's fair)
  • Mango Syrup (also, can't complain here)
  • Unicorn pink powder (what the heck is "unicorn pink powder?" Umm what is it actually?)
  • Blue White Mocha Drizzle (Why is the white mocha blue? Did someone say too much food coloring?)
  • Whipped Cream (That's fine with me!)
  • Blue and pink unicorn dust (Once, again what is "unicorn dust" actually made of? Also how much food coloring is used in it?)

In one Grande (16oz) Unicorn Frappuccino), there is 410 calories (140 from fat), 10g of saturated fat, 45mg of cholesterol, and 59g of sugar!! That's a lot of bad stuff...but can we focus specifically on how much sugar that is? 59g of sugar...That's more sugar than a 16oz can of Coca-Cola. That's more sugar than a McDonalds Hot Fudge Sundae. That's more sugar than two 8oz servings of Sour Patch Kids (and you can literally see the sugar on Sour Patch Kids, that has to be saying something!)

The Unicorn Frapp was meant for pretty Instagram photos, but let's not drink too much. Most of the Starbucks locations ended up selling out of this blended beverage. The drink is no longer available, sorry folks.

We Need More Than Memorials this Memorial Day

When I was a child, I used to look forward to Memorial Day Weekend from the time I returned to school after Christmas vacation.

I remember how exciting summer was when I was a kid. I would just be eagerly waiting for school to end so that I could fly to some exotic location with my family for the summer. Or hang out with my friends every day. Or just lay around in bed or read, paint, draw, basically do whatever.

Soccer, Spain and Racism

When we think of events that have transpired in the US over the last few years, a lot of it ends up in spotlighting the division in the country. However, things across the pond seem to be no better - at least when it comes to sports.
