Lori Aquino said the Unicorn Frappuccino caught her eye on social media. Then people at work were talking about it.

“I saw it was coming out today, so I decided to try it,” Aquino said at a Washington, D.C., Starbucks. “I’ll probably put it on Snapchat or Instagram.”

She bought one to share with her two coworkers.

And the verdict?

“It’s kinda nasty,” Aquino said.

Letitia Winston agreed: “Nope. That will not be something I come looking for.”

But Moriam Animashaun was more forgiving. “It’s not bad,” she said. “It’s just really sweet.”
