Does Anyone Drink Black Coffee Anymore?
According to CNN Money, a "tall" Unicorn Frappuccino with whole milk has 280 calories, 11 grams of fat, and 39 grams of sugar. That's pretty much a doughnut in your Starbucks cup, to wash down your doughnut. Why would anyone order this?
My wonderful colleagues Chrissy and Jess had to try out this new Starbucks sensation. WhiIe I think it made a nice looking accessory for my co-hosts, neither was particularly impressed. Jess was "meh" when I asked her if she'd get it again, but Chrissy said she probably would. After I informed her that it contained 39 grams of sugar. She quickly changed her answer to "Oh sh*t no!"
In fairness, the Unicorn Frappuccino does look kinda pretty, at least until you start drinking it. After a few minutes, it kinda reminded me of a woman with caked on makeup throwing up Fruit Loops. Yummy!
I was reluctant to try it but I did. It wasn't horrible...it was a little worse. Too sugary, syrupy, with the aftertaste a little reminiscent of watered down Gatorade. I'll stick to my dark roasted, black coffee.
For the record, I think Chrissy and Jess look great on their own. Who really wants or needs this caffeinated accessory?
