Unicorn Frappuccino: A Day At Macy’s Herald Square

Unicorn Frappuccino: A Day At Macy’s Herald Square

Unicorn Frappuccino

 

Hey everyone and welcome back to my blog.  For this post, I will be talking about the infamous Unicorn Frappuccino sold by Starbucks.   So after so much talk and hype about the drink, I finally got the chance to taste if for myself.

Today during my adventure in New York City, I decided to check out the Macy’s Herald Square.  Located on 151 W 34th street,  the store is humongous.  The store has about 8 floors, 5 or more retaurants, and about 4 Starbucks locations spread throughout different levels of the store.   So after going inside the store and browsing around for about 20 minutes,  I came across Starbucks.

I guess if you guys may not have guessed it by now, I love Starbucks.  Especially their frappuccinos which I always get everytime I go.   So when i walked up to the register and ordered the drink, I was kind of suprised that they had it available.  Mainly because the last time that I ordered the drink back home in Philly, they did not have the ingredients to make the drink.  So as you guys can imagine, I was not a happy camper that time.

So after getting my drink and finding a seat to sit down in, it was time for the “taste”.

 

I will say that even though the drink did look pretty, it tasted okay.  The flavor reminded me of cotton candy which made it taste sweet.  At the same time, I did taste some hint of  sourness too. Don’t get me wrong,  I could definitely see myself getting this drink again,  but to me it wasn’t nothing special.  Just an ordinary frappuccino with cotton candy flavoring.

Though if I had to compare this frappuccino to my other 2 favorites by Starbucks which are the Vanilla Bean Creme and Strawberries & Creme, I would still go with my top two favorites.  So what do you guys think?! Have you had the chance to try out this magical drink or are you still on the waiting list to get one lol?. If so definitely try to get your hands on this drink.  Just know that what ever i say in this post is my own personal opinion so don’t let that stop you from giving this drink a try. So I hope you all enjoyed this post and talk to you all in another one!

I’m not really a coffee person but some of the Starbucks coffee does seem worth trying. Strawberries and Creme sounds good. I want to try the S’mores one sometime.

I tried to order one, and was unable to try it, but I enjoyed our insight on it. And now I really want to check out this 8 floor Macy’s!

I’m a big coffee drinker but not this kind. I much prefer plain old coffee with regular cream.

Haven’t tried this yet as I’m not the biggest fan of sweet drinks, but the Vanilla bean creme sounds like something worth trying! Thanks for the review!

Hey hey hey it is the famous Unicorn Frappuccino 😀 I went to the mall around the time these were the new craze and I swear I saw pink EVERYWHERE! Everybody was getting these like their life depended on it 😀 Hahahaha! So glad you got to try it. I didn’t because I was on a diet and I’d read about how BADLY loaded with sugar this one was 😀 I know the others are too but this one was advertised as like THE ‘instant-diabetes-causing’ drink and that’s not what you want when you’re trying to loose some weight!

This looks yummy but the sugar is so highhhhhh!! OMG! I will indulge and let you know how it goes!

I tried it and gave the rest away. I love coffee, but this doesn’t actually have any, so it just tasted like a mixture of coloring and artificial flavors. The Barista didn’t look happy that I ordered it either! haha

I love Starbucks also, but too bad they’re not in Nigeria yet 🙁 this looks so rich and good I want to have one now 🙁 I hope they consider having a branch here soon 🙁

I heard it tasted mango like…So many different descriptions are out here that I’m starting to think this was really a magical drink that changes tastes!

It sounds like a Sweet-Tart. I think it would be a bit too sweet for me. That being said I do like their coffee frap.

I’m not a coffee drinker and I don’t go to Starbucks much but I was curious about the hype behind this drink. I’ve seen a lot of people comment on the extreme sweetness and sugar levels so I think I’ll pass lol. Your other 2 faves sound good, though! ? Thanks for sharing!

LOL.. I thought your description of “just an ordinary frappuccino with cotton candy flavoring” made me smile. Anyway, I have not tried it and I had no idea some Starbucks carried it. Thanks for your honest review of it.

I managed to miss the whole trend and never got a chance to sample the drink. 🙁 I’m glad you were able to taste it, a lot of my friends didn’t like it at all!

I’m glad I read this. You saved me a trip. A cotton candy frappe sounds kinda gross!

My daughter keeps asking me about this drink. It’s all the rave. I had no idea there was a waiting list?

I am a Starbucks addict, I have yet to try that one though.

I really wanted to try this out but all of my local stores were out. I’m not sure Starbucks prepared for how popular it was going to be. That’s okay, there’s always the cotton candy flavor to try. Nice post! 🙂

I’m not a coffee person, but I don’t think I’m a Unicorn frap kinda girl either. Looks pretty…but taste is always more important to me.

I’m not much of a coffee person myself but I must admit it smells Delicious! SO much so that I sometimes try it again, always regret it when I do though! I guess I’ll never learn 😀

I love coffee, but hate fraps. I had no interest in trying this and from what you said it tasted like, I am not missing out.
