Starbucks Baristas Are Venting Online About How Much They Hate The New Unicorn Frappuccinos

The holidays used to be the designated time for Starbucks to out-extra itself, offering up sugary drinks that only barely resembled coffee beverages for a limited period. But, Starbucks wasn’t satisfied with that, so they decided they had to create a new saccharine monstrosity for the springtime: the Unicorn Frappuccino.

The new beverage is described by Starbucks as being available “for a few days only,” and the taste is described as “magical flavors start off sweet and fruity transforming to pleasantly sour. Swirl it to reveal a color-changing spectacle of purple and pink. It’s finished with whipped cream-sprinkled pink and blue fairy powders.”

Since it’s a limited drink, customers are understandably kvelling over the new, colorful drink

Starbucks baristas, however, are definitely not feeling the hype. In fact, most of them are essentially pleading with people to stop ordering the sugary abomination because it’s such a pain-in-the-ass to make.

A few baristas are even cautioning customers against ordering the drink.

So, if you feel compelled to sample the pink-and-blue concoction, perhaps you ought to think again. Sure, you’ll get a sugar-rush the likes of which you have probably never experienced — but, you’ll also piss off your Starbucks barista, who is almost assuredly sick of mixing this crap.
