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.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
