In what is substantially the slightest startling news of the day, the Unicorn Frappuccinos that are driving Starbucks baristas mad are full of sugar.

Not that you’d design anything that vigourously charming to be anything other than sweet.

What are the advantages of celebration immature tea?

Plus, lots of tasty drinks are sugary. A Pumpkin Spiced Latte is frequency a delectable option. Regular frappuccinos are flattering sweet. And as for winter drinks, they’re really just warmed up sugar syrup.

But what are Starbuck’s newest and many magical, limited-edition drinks actually done from?

A Unicorn Frappuccino is radically done from whole divert and churned cream and is surfaced with ‘fairy powders’ (I mean…it’s not but OK Starbucks, keep infantilising your market).

A lot of sugar.

59g of sugar in fact (if you’re going for a Grande).

To put that in perspective, that’s the equivalent of 15 teaspoons or:

Two double deckers (29.5g sugar each)

Hallo 😄 Ich hab noch immer Sachen aus der Snackbox vom Monat März zuhause, also disorder ich mal meine Gedanken mit euch teilen, da diese Süßigkeiten ja nicht so einfach zu bekommen sind bei uns. 😇 Die März Box drehte sich, wie man evtl aus dem Namen des “Riegels” ableiten kann, um England. 😊 Und wieso er Double Decker heißt dürfte auch hoffentlich jedem einleuchten. 🙈 Der obere Teil schmeckt so ungefähr wie ein Mars, zum unteren Teil fällt mir kein Vergleich ein – mit diesen crispy Balls aber definitiv der bessere Teil. 😍😍 In der Box waren auch so “Gold” Riegel. 😱 Die sind unfassbar lecker, doch sehen sie irgendwie nicht so ästhetisch aus. 😂🙈 Vielleicht mach ich dennoch noch ein Foto. 😇 Dieses Monat sind in der Snackbox von @vernaschediewelt übrigens Süßigkeiten aus Brasilien. 😈 Kennt ihr zufällig die Double Decker oder Gold Riegel? 😋 #lecker #vernaschediewelt #doubledecker #schokolade

It’s some-more sweetened even than full-fat Coca-Cola (10.6g per 100ml contra the Unicorn’s 13.11g)

I got that feeling… inside my bones!!😝 #coke

The NHS recommends having no some-more than 30g of combined sugars a day – so this frappuccino is almost two times over that amount.

Even if you just had a Tall Unicorn Frappuccino, you’d still be looking at 39g of sugar which means you’d be good over the daily endorsed limit.
