The Unicorn Frap -Magically Delicious?

19 Apr

By: Sarah Creamer

Today I went to Starbucks but not for my regular order. Usually I get a Skinny Vanilla Latte ( half sweet with coconut milk), but today my order was going to be magical!

I heard through the grapevine a few weeks ago that Starbucks was coming out with a new Frappuccino. I avoid these as much as possible but today I caved and got one. Why? Because how do you resist something with the word “Unicorn” in it.

Yes, that’s right, they call this beautiful beverage “The Unicorn”. LOOK AT IT. The Frappuccino looks like a Unicorn! It’s purple & pink with a blue ribbon topped with whipped cream with blue and pink sprinkles. It’s almost too pretty to drink! The barista who made mine must have a degree in Frappuccino Making because mine looked like a beautiful masterpiece!

Where you from? You sexy thing.

 

So, what does it taste like?! When I asked the Barista what was in the Unicorn, this is what they told me: whole milk (all Frapps are made whole milk unless told otherwise), ice (to make it cold obviously), pink sugary stuff (this is exactly how it was described to me), mango syrup, blue white mocha base stuff (again exact description), whipped cream topped off with pink and blue sprinkle stuff. I was expecting the drink to taste really tart and sour but it wasn’t! It tasted like cotton candy which awesome because everyone knows cotton candy is the best.  But then something weird happened…

I never finish a Frappucchino. I always get way overwhelmed by how sugary they are and have to tap out half way through even if I’m drinking the smallest size. But I decided to stick this one out, mostly because I saw how much effort the guy making put in to this drink.

About half way through, I was reconsidering my life choices when all of sudden BAM, the flavor changed! It went from this amazing cotton candy flavor to this sweet tart flavor. Was it as good as cotton candy?  NOPE! Did I stop drinking after that?! NOPE! I continued to drink the entire drink in case there was another surprise in store, but alas, the flavor did not change again.

Sidenote: I also ate the sprinkles that were on top of the whipped cream and let me tell you, those things are sour!

All in all the Unicorn Frappucchino was not a huge disappointment. I highly recommend it to anyone who’s looking to treat yo’self or is super in to sugary, magical, overpriced delicious-ness.

The Day of Love

14 Feb

Valentine’s Day is a funny day. In my younger years I hated it. Every Freddie Prinze Jr. movie made me believe I would be swept off my feet by a boy I’d been pining over. But year after year that didn’t happen. The closest I got was being taken to see the movie Daredevil the year Valentine’s Day happened to fall on the coldest day of the year. Suffice to say the temperature of my heart adjusted to match that of the outdoors. 
As I got a little older I just acted like it wasn’t for me likely to avoid another disastrous date involving a Ben and Jen movie. Eventually I legitimately stopped caring about it. 

As time went on, I met The Husband, adopted the fur-baby and continued into a life of love with someone by my side. 

In a home of two people who were “meh” to this day, it’s just never become a thing. Sure we share cards and a dietary appropriate treat (FYI: Love means not wanting to ruin someone’s digestive tract) but that’s about it. 

This year though with so much garbage in the news and so much hurt and hate, I’ve been trying to focus on the good things in my life, mainly love. 

Of all the things I worry about on any given day, love is not one of them. I love love. I love the feeling of love. Not just romantic love, but the love you share with friends, family, random puppies you see on the street, etc… 

The feeling of a happy heart that has become that way because of a multitude of people. Am I IN love? Absolutely. And I consider myself insanely lucky for that. Outside of The Husband do I have love? You bet. 

So on a day that I don’t really love all that much, I did want to send a little love note into the world for the people who have touched my heart and let me feel loved, and who let me love them in return. 

Isn’t that what this is all about anyway? This isn’t singles awareness day for those who aren’t in a romantic relationship, it’s a moment for all of us, paired or not to feel love. 
So to the people in my corner that have warmed my heart, make me laugh, build me up when I’m down, listen to my silly ideas, send random notes even if we haven’t talked in a while, know that you’re loved. And thanks for loving me.
