Starbucks calls shifting-color drink a "Unicorn Frappuccino"

The flavor part might not seem that impressive - a caramel macchiato tastes like espresso until you stir it, after all - but Starbucks claims that the color changes from purple and blue to solid pink, which anyone who's ever mixed paint will tell you is impossible.

The Seattle-based coffeehouse giant will sell its new Unicorn Frappuccino blended drink tomorrow through Sunday, or as long as supplies last.

For a limited time, Starbucks will offer the Unicorn Frappucino, a shimmery purple and blue blended beverage that turns pink when you stir it. "The more swirl, the more the beverage's color and flavors transform".

The Unicorn Frappuccino is clearly aimed at the social-media set.

Of course, more questions remain. There's no video evidence yet, because the drink hasn't officially launched, but if that's true, it really is magical.

Starbucks promises that the drink will have the opposite effect of a Sour Patch Kid.

Coffee, it is not - a new pink drink coming soon at Starbucks is causing a buzz online.

This isn't the first unicorn latte on the market. The rainbow beverage popped up on Instagram after a Brooklyn cafe called The End debuted a colourful drink with lemon, ginger, honey, coconut milk and blue-green algae.

The unicorn coffee trend has reached peak saturation.

The FDA recommends limiting your daily sugar consumption to 50 grams - so it's probably a good idea to stick with the tall.
