SEATTLE — A Starbucks barista has taken to social media hoping to make orders for the coffee chain’s much buzzed about Unicorn Frappuccino disappear.
• VIDEO: Starbucks barista’s anti-Unicorn Frappuccino rant
Starbucks’ entry into the unicorn food craze was released Wednesday and its popularity was too much for Colorado barista Braden Burson. He posted a video on Twitter complaining that the drink was difficult to make and he’s “never been so stressed out” in his life.
The Unicorn Frappuccino is a sweet and sour pink and blue cream swirl topped with what Starbucks calls “fairy powder.”
Burson says a day of making the treat left him with sticky hands and residue from the drink stuck to his clothes and in his hair.
Starbucks says in a statement it’s reaching out to Burson “to talk about his experience and how to make it better.”
