Starbuckss calls it the flavor-changing, color-changing, totally not-made-up "Unicorn Frappuccino".

"Ever since I realized that adding beet juice to food would turn it into the most magnificent shade of hot pink, I was hooked", Waugh told Vogue.

Starbucks described its limited-edition Unicorn Frappuccino - so named because of the bright blue, purple and pink artificial food coloring - as "flavor-changing, color-changing" with flavors that "start off sweet and fruity, transforming to pleasantly sour". I'd like to think the "Let's eat something sugar-loaded, pink and sparkly", hasn't drawn me in since my elementary years.

I'm the type of girl who will push my plate away from me, deem something inedible-y disgusting, and still find myself picking at the remnants later in the conversation.

Unicorn Frappuccino hair has officially arrived on Instagram, and it is definitely an inspiring look.

Skipping the whipped cream won't make much of a difference at 55g of sugar, which is only about one less sugar cube.

Anyway, a couple Reebok trainers, Pete O'Donnell and Ally Leard, chose to create a "Unicorn Workout" in the spirit of the unicorn drink. But sadly, that first sip is the best sip you're going to get. Virtual escapism is on the rise.

So we went out, bought both and got some local test takers to try them both out.

Before we begin, in the interest of full disclosure I must point out that my wife has worked for Starbucks for over a decade.

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

The Associated Press reports Braden Burson tweeted that the drink is too hard to make and the drink left him with sticky hands and residue covering his clothing and hair. My hands are completely sticky.

Hang in there, Braden.

But if people keep ordering the new frapp, and he keeps complaining. who knows?

In the age of rainbow bagels and sushi burritos, we sadly must ask ourselves what we're doing with our lives.
