"The unicorn Frappuccino from Starbucks looks like it tastes like a birthday party that no one showed up to", one Twitter user wrote. If you love the candy-colored pink and blue drink, then you'll love this hairstyle even more.

Comments rolled in across the internet remarking on just how bad the drink actually tastes.

One Twitter user wrote: "Really hope the Unicorn Frappuccino comes to the United Kingdom because it looks like all of my dreams coming true in a coffee cup".

The Starbucks at Indianapolis Boulevard and Main Street in Schererville was apparently the only location that still had the "creme Frappuccino with mango syrup and layered with a pleasantly sour blue drizzle" that's "finished with vanilla whipped cream and a sprinkle of sweet pink and sour blue powder topping".

The coffee chain is calling it the flavor-changing, color-changing, totally not-made-up unicorn frappuccino.

Braden Burson, a barista in Colorado, went on a YouTube rant about how frightful the drink is to make, according to The Washington Post.

The miffed barista shouts: "Please don't get it!"

"I have unicorn crap all in my hair and on my nose", Burson said in the video, which has since been deleted from his account.

So, all in all, the moral of the story is always trust everything Katy Perry does and says and the Unicorn Frappuccino is simply just a pricey Instagram post. He explains that the Unicorn Frappuccino is incredibly hard and stressful to make, especially one after another.

The drink will be available through April 23.

If you order a grande, which is the 16 oz drink, it's going to set you back 410 calories, 62 grams of carbs, and 59 grams of sugar.

Another barista snapped a photo of his stained hand after making the drinks all day.
