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.

Almond gosh! Another pumpkin spice thing?! 🎃
⠀
It's not new but I recently tried @traderjoes' Pumpkin Spice Almond Beverage. It's vegan, gluten-free, soy free, and lactose and dairy free.
⠀
To be honest, the only pumpkin spice thing I've tried is the drink from Starbucks and I rarely go to Starbucks. This has a strong cinnamon punch. If anything, it should be called 'Cinnamon Almond Beverage' because that's all I taste.
⠀
It's not too sweet. It's got a creamy feel and is slightly smooth. You can definitely see the spices in the drink. It's not the greatest but not the worst. It actually grows on you.

Would I repurchase it? Nah. I'll stick to the traditional almond drinks.

I like saving the Earth for future generations and other species a choco-lat more than eating meat 🤷🏻‍♀️🍰
⠀
Had the Chocolate Caramel Cake from @ikeacanada at the end of September. Very rich and definitely hits that sweet tooth! While I've been vegetarian for a bit over a month now, that doesn't mean I can't eat delicious foods. The stigma against vegetarian/vegan food is ridiculous. I've been vegan in the past and I've had just as good vegan/vegetarian food as meat-containing products. If you know how flavours work, then you know how to make something delicious.
⠀
Also- I'm not shaming people for eating meat. But, with climate change, it's best if we all eat meat a little less. The carbon footprint in the meat industry is a great one and we all can do our part. Have Meatless Mondays, or make it a habit to make at least one meatless meal a day.
⠀
Climate change is natural phenomenon. It will happen and has happened before. BUT, it's the rate that it is occurring at which is the problem. Humans and other species on this Earth will not survive—the Earth will and adapt. So, let's try and keep the Earth habitable for all the babies and their future kids, and all the other species.

The days of smelling like grease or smoky barbeque after a meal ar-gan. (Swipe ⏩)
⠀
Thank you @influensterca for sending me this #complimentary bottle of @Dove Body Wash Mousse! Already loving the smell from the "scratch and sniff" part but cannot wait to actually try it out!
⠀
Also- keeping it real with this selfie taken in the bathroom, where I'll be using this product ✌️

There's nothing fishy about these golden filets 🐟
⠀
Before I went vegetarian, I RARELY ate fish. The main fishes I ate were tuna and eel. But I've had fish and chips before, so I know what to compare when trying out the @garden Golden Filets.
⠀
Maybe because of the grease, it really gave off that fishy, seafood smell I've encountered with fish and chips here. But after a while, it subsided and I was able to enjoy it. The soy taste isn't as prominent in this as other Gardein products but you can still see that because of it, the texture isn't the same. However, it is a good alternative for new vegans/vegetarians that cut out fish.

Ate more than a pizza this...I ate the whole thing! 🍕
⠀
This Roasted Mushroom & Garlic pizza from @preschoice is actually pretty good! It's thin, cheesy, tasty, and the perfect personal pizza size. I couldn't taste any garlic but after it came out of the oven, the cheese was gooey and the perfect melt. I did use a toaster oven (when it said it's not recommended for one 🙊), so it didn't come out as crispy as I would have liked. It still was good though!
⠀
For vegetarians, this pizza is perfect for you (if you still eat cheese). Since I'm lacto-ovo vegetarian, I decided to add an egg on top for some added protein.
🍕🥚
