The rumours are true — the Unicorn Frappuccino is coming to Starbucks! But there’s a catch.

Last week, reports swirled that the coffee chain would be jumping on the unicorn-themed drink trend and releasing a “Unicorn Frappuccino” — and Reddit and Instagram photos from baristas seemed to confirm that yes, the purple-pink drink of our dreams was a real thing.

On Tuesday, Starbucks announced that the Instagram-worthy beverage is indeed coming to stores in Canada, U.S. and Mexico — but only for a limited time.

The blended creme starts as a purple with swirls of blue and a first taste that is “sweet and fruity.” But a quick stir will change the colour to pink, and evolve the flavour to tangy and tart.

“The Unicorn Frappuccino blended crème is made with a dusting of pink topping blended into a crème Frappuccino with mango syrup and layered with a pleasantly sour blue drizzle,” explains a press release. “It is finished with vanilla whipped cream and a sprinkle of sweet pink and sour blue topping.”

OK, we’re officially intrigued.

The Unicorn Frappuccino hits Starbucks stores across the country on April 19 and will be available while supplies last through April 23 — so get it before it’s too late!
