Since its launching earlier this week, Starbuck’s Unicorn Frappuccino has been receiving mixed reviews. But perhaps it’s a little bit unexpected to see that the company’s own baristas are among those hating the colorful drink.
One of the baristas, named Braden Burson, publicly gave the drink a negative review by ranting about it on Twitter. In a video he recently uploaded, and deleted shortly after, he complained about how messy it could get making the drink.
“Please don’t get it!” he said in the clip. “I have unicorn crap all in my hair and on my nose. I have never been so stressed out in my entire life.” According to the Association Press, Starbucks is trying to reach out to Burson “to talk about his experience and how to make it better.”
But Starbucks may want to talk to their other baristas too, who also ranted about the Unicorn Frappuccino on Twitter as well as in a Reddit forum for Starbucks baristas. “As a barista, just know that every time you ask me to make this, a part of me dies #unicornfrappuccino,” one tweeted. Another one called the drink the “Frap from hell” and someone even gave a picture of the drink a middle finger.
Have you tasted the Unicorn Frappuccino? What do you think of it? If you hate it too, don’t worry because it will only be available through Sunday.(dth/gaekon)
