Starbucks’ Unicorn Frappucino


If you’re a Starbucks drinker, I’m sure you’ve heard all the buzz about their new, colourful drink.

The Unicorn Frappucino Blended Crème is a limited-time frappucino containing mango syrup, sour powders, and topped with pink sprinkled whip cream. It’s meant to be colour-changing (pink to purple) and taste-changing (sweet to tart) once mixed.

I ordered a venti size to share with my family, even though I knew I’d be drinking about 98% of it. As expected, it had the pink sprinkled whip cream, the blue drizzle, and the pink hue. I mixed the drink to see the colour change but nothing was happenin
g. On my first sip, the drink was sweet. It was similar to bubble gum. But once the drink settled (after mixing), the taste started to change. It became tart. The flavour continued to change the longer the drink settled. It became extremely tart, on the verge of being sour, which explains the addition of the sour powders.

I did find a hint of cherry, which now I can understand why some people said it tasted like medicine. Also, the sugar content is extremely high. If you ordered a venti like I did, it’s about 76g of sugar! Insane!


I’ll admit – I only wanted the drink to see what the hype was and to Instagram it. It is a pretty drink and it seemed quick to make, based on the barista I had. It wasn’t the greatest drink but it wasn’t the worst. The only part I liked was the whip cream with pink sugar sprinkled on top. When that part mixed in with the rest of the drink, that’s when it was tolerable. Am I disappointed that it didn’t taste as good as it looked? No, I expected it to be all hype.

 
In conclusion: Save your money and go with your regular order. This is a drink you won’t remember a week from now.

I don't like olives—leaf me alone! 🥬
⠀
Salads don't really fill up my stomach, so I rarely order them as my main entrée. However, when I am looking for something light, I'll order one.
⠀
When I took @xstephanieeee and @alavia to @3brasseursca before one of the Duke Canada basketball games, I got this pasta salad. I forgot the name of this dish but it's on the lunch menu. I'm not a fan of olives and I knew they'd be in this salad, but I figured it'd be just a few olives. Boy, was I wrong! This was like an olive dump!
⠀
If you don't like olives, I'd highly avoid this particular pasta salad.
🥗

Call me irrational for posting a non-pi(e) photo on Pi Day.

Throwback to last July at the Burlington Food Truck festival. Since they were featured on 'You Gotta Eat Here!', I tried the Pulled Pork Beanasaurus from Sul Irmaos Smokehouse.
⠀
As you can tell, it's a sandwich with mess written all over it. It was stacked with pulled pork, chili, coleslaw, and fried mac and cheese bites. Taste-wise, it was okay. The fried mac and cheese bites placed on top didn't elevate the sandwich as I hoped it would. It didn't provide the cheesiness I wanted it to.
