Starbucks’ New Unicorn Drink is Causing Baristas to Lose It

Starbucks just rolled out its Unicorn Frappuccino this week, which is a pink-and-blue mango cream drink that’s perfect for Instagram photos. It turns out that Frappuccino has magical powers.

Specifically, it has the magical ability to make Starbucks baristas go insane. Starbucks employees all over the country have been venting about the chaos that the Unicorn Frappuccino has caused thanks to its massive popularity.

The drink is pretty complicated for the baristas to make, and most stores didn’t get enough of the ingredients to fulfill the demand. With hundreds of people coming in and ordering these things all day long, it’s made their lives brutal.

As one of them wrote, “I was off at 7, we sold 400, and it just kept going. I never thought I’d have a near breakdown while covered in pink dust.”

One frustrated barista vented on video:

And as another wrote, “Any other baristas feel like putting a severed unicorn head in [CEO] Howard Schultz’s bed with a note saying ‘Never again’?”

On the bright side for them, the Unicorn Frappuccino is only being offered through Sunday. But on the downside, if they run out of ingredients before then, they’re going to be saying “No” to thousands of angry customers this weekend.
