The Unicorn Is Gone, But Disneyland Has A Pink Pegasus
Don’t despair, pink drink lovers.
While it has only been a few days since Starbucks closed the curtain on its made-for-Instagram Unicorn Frappuccino that took the online world by storm, a new option was recently invented.
On Monday, the Starbucks in downtown Disneyland ran out of the blue ingredients needed to make the Unicorn Frappuccino. But fear not! In typical Disney fashion, drink dreams still came true.
How did they bounce back from the calamity? The Happiest Starbucks on Earth simply concocted their own mythical creature-inspired drink – and voila! The Pink Pegasus Frappuccino was born.
The drink blends white mocha and raspberry flavors, according to Hello Giggles, and is basically the Unicorn Frappuccino without the sour blue ingredients. Considering the sour taste is what many critics complain about most (aside from the obsession's potential long-term repercussions on our society as a whole), the Pegasus seems to be a hit.
Not everyone, however, is enamoured with the pink potion. According to Anthony Bourdain the drink is the “perfect nexus of awfulness’. Here is what the celebrity foodie had to say about it: “Wow, that’s like four things I hate all in one sentence: Starbucks, unicorns, and the colors pink and purple. Also a Frappuccino! It’s the perfect nexus of awfulness. Just add pumpkin spice to that mix, and you can nuke the whole county.”
