Question of the week: What was your experience with Starbucks’ Unicorn Frappuccino?

The Starbucks drink that’s all the rage…and why the coffee chain did it

The neon “Unicorn Frappuccino” clashes hard with the coffee chain’s affected faux-Italian branding. It’s not the sort of drink that one imagines ordering with words like “Venti” or sipping amidst light jazz…None of that really matters to Starbucks, though. The limited-time item isn’t meant to blend with the company’s coffeehouse chic but rather its customers’ social media feeds. — Mashable
