Starbucks' latest drink is an abomination of visuals and flavours but that hasn't stopped people in the US going batshit for it. Unfortunately for the coffee house though, not everyone is a fan. Staff included.
The "mango creme frappuccino coupled with pink powder scoops, sour blue syrup drizzle and whipped cream sprinkled with blue and pink powder" is a highly unappetising but unsurprisingly good seller for Starbucks, with people flooding in their droves to taste and Instagram the new drink. But it's a bit of a nightmare for staff, who have been sharing their woes on Reddit and social media.
Turns out making the drink is more painful than any other drink on the menu and employees can't cope.
As a barista, just know that every time you ask me to make this, a part of me dies #unicornfrappuccino

Late night hosts Stephen Colbert and Jimmy Kimmel also reacted to the ungodly concoction, with Colbert going so far as to taste-test the thing and Kimmel coming up with a new drink for Starbucks.
Honestly Jimmy, we're into that. Send it over.
