Last week, Unicorn Frapuccino hit Starbucks lovers by storm. Now, another mythical creature-based Frap, the Dragon Frappuccino, is being blended up at coffee chains across the country, giving the neon Unicorn (which we tried; read about it here) a run for its $4. The Dragon Frap’s origins are humble: basically, sinces its Instagram takeover, stores have been running out of the ingredients needed to make a Unicorn Frap. That led some baristas to think on their feet, so someone decided to mix a Green Tea Frappuccino with vanilla bean powder and a blueberry swirl. (The purple color is the result of dried blueberries.)
Never really been into unicorns. But, dragons? Sure, I’ll try that. Lo and behold…le dragon frap! (It’s a green tea frap with vanilla bean powder and some berry cup swirl, I think.) #gimmicks #starbucks #frappuccinos #notaunicorn #itsadragon #dragonfrappuccino #notterrible #probablynotagain #greenteafrappuccinoisbetter #muchmuchlatergram
Of course, the trend is now spreading faster than Sean Spicer’s latest gaffe and so far, at least one location has mocked up some official signage. What do you think will be the next curious flavor to cause widespread hysteria? Personally, we wouldn’t mind one based on our favorite not-so-mythical creature: the Playboy Bunny. What do you say, Starbucks.
