Barista 'stressed' over new drink at Starbucks

It got hordes of people to share its most eye-catching beverage on the menu - secret or otherwise - on social media.

It seems Starbucks looked to Charlie, the most famous Unicorn in pop culture, for inspiration on its latest Frappuccino.

In the last few days, everyone's Instagram and Facebook feeds have been clogged with a magical creature people can't get enough of.

The drink was supposed to be available from April 19-23.

It appears that Starbucks baristas don't really like the drink, either. Starbucks describes the beverage as having "pink and blue fairy powder" with "magical flavors". My initial reaction is disgust that Starbucks would offer a sugar filled Frappuccino.

Baristas at Tacoma's newest Starbucks in the Stadium District said the drink has been popular but hasn't been hard to make.

One of the biggest statements of the season is the rainbow unicorn craze, appearing everywhere from clothes to hair to food and making an exceptionally prevalent appearance at this year's Coachella festival.

Then came another, and another, and another cotton-candy colored cup cradled in the hands of six Instagramers snapping evidence as they scattered out of Starbucks Corporation (NASDAQ: SBUX).

The Seattle-based company probably said it best in its tweet on Wednesday: "As rare as... a unicorn".

"I have never made so many Frappuccinos in my entire life", Burson said on the video.

Mike Fahey of Kotaku's Snacktaku has shared his opinion of the Unicorn Frappuccino, saying, "It's all about the spectacle".

Thankfully these majestic drinks are on a limited run, but it's unclear if your favorite barista will make it through to the end.

This little fella might need to wash his mouth out with more than unicorn juice.

The drink's bright colors and flavors might look nearly radioactive, but the only health risk lies in its sugar and calorie content. The whole concoction contains a whopping 76 grams of sugar.
