Katy Perry Has the Official Verdict on Starbucks's Unicorn Frappuccino

A barista at a Boston University Starbucks wishes the "unicorn frappuccino" were truly as mythical as the creature it's named after.

"Please don't get it!" he said in the video, which has now been deleted from his account.

"I have never made so many frappuccinos in my entire life, and my hands are completely sticky", he complained. "I have never been so stressed out in my entire life".

Starbucks said in a statement to Boston.com that the company is listening to feedback from both customers and baristas about the drink.

The Unicorn Frappuccino is taking newsfeeds by storm, presumably because it was invented for the sheer objective of filling Instagram with cups of multi-colored froth that make Tumblr-enthusiasts squeal and cynical 20-somethings roll their eyes so far into the backs of the head, they go blind.

"I AM COVERED IN UNICORN BLOOD", he wrote (screamed?) in the caption.

The hair artist behind this look is Kelly Woodford, a Winnipeg-based stylist who is inspiring us to try some pastel hues this spring. Braden Burson from a Colorado Starbucks is going viral with this rant against preparing the Unicorn.

And now the baristas are rebelling.

If you love them, that's cool.

But still, even despite all that, the drink continued to sell.

Burson apparently is not the only barista who is not enamored with the unicorn Frappuccino. It has to be said that it makes for some good-looking photos.

The drink has also caused baristas to freak out, too.

Stephen Colbert was clearly not impressed when he tried one on his show this week.

There has been some backlash on the nutritional value, but other flavors that are available year-round run about the same.
