By now, you're probably tired of the hundreds of articles written about the short-lived Unicorn Frappucino from Starbucks - especially the taste-test opinion-pieces, so instead of reading a drawn out explanation of the "three Snickers bars' worth" of sugar a literal sugary treat drink has, here are some pros and cons of the now extinct blue-pink drink.
Pro: You get to share stylish, insta-worthy pics of your frap.
Pink, blue, purple, whipped cream, and "magic sugar dust" on top? #Aesthetic, am I right?
Con: You and literally thousands of other people have the same "hot shot" pic on your timeline.

Con: If you really did enjoy the drink, you won't be able to get it again because it was a limited time offer.
You will have nightmares every time you go to Starbucks, watching your world crash before you as the "Unicorn Frappucino" sign on the menu with a big X over it saying "sorry, no more left" comes down. And then, you'll think of better days, like April 19th, 2017, when the Unicorn frap existed and all was right in the world.
