Starbucks briefly made everyone go insane when they unleashed the Unicorn Frappuccino on the world. The drink’s electric pink and blue swirls, the daintily powdered whipped cream on top, are all made to be Instagrammed.
But we think it’s time we moved on from the unicorn. We get it: They are fabulous, colorful, and sparkly. But there are so many other mythical creatures out there that also deserve our attention and respect. Right now these creatures are being overshadowed — even oppressed — by the unicorn, but we’re not standing for it any longer.
We’re here to make the case for these other mythical creatures, specifically that these creatures also deserve their own delicious frappuccinos. Because the unicorn isn’t the only thing that tastes great when blended with sugar.
1. Dragon Frappuccino
Dracarys it up with the Dragon Frappuccino. This drink is dragonfruit-flavored molten goodness. A secret red spicy sauce is swirled into the cup for a fiery kick suitable for a dragon. Cayenne pepper flakes are sprinkled across the whipped cream on top for that last glorious touch.
2. Wood Nymph Frappuccino
Embrace nature in the most sophisticated way you know how — with a Wood Nymph Frappuccino in your hand. The drink is an intoxicating blend of chocolate and rosemary, and it comes perfectly swirled green and brown. Rosemary sprigs on top complete the woodsy look.
3. Fairy Frappuccino
Absolutely nothing is more magical than fairies, not even unicorns. The Fairy Frappuccino looks like paradise, tastes like a pink Starburst, and is topped with both rainbow glitter and sprinkles. If that’s not enough to get you Instagram likes, you have the option to add a star-shaped cake pop to the ensemble. Warning: Consuming this may actually turn you into a fairy.
4. Mermaid Frappuccino
Unleash your inner Ariel with the Mermaid Frappuccino, a coconut-flavored drink that’s a beautiful sea foam green in color. Delicate seaweed flakes dot the whipped cream on top, so that one sip transports you right to the ocean.
5. Leprechaun Frappuccino
Yes, we know that McDonald’s has their Shamrock Shake, but the Leprechaun Frappuccino gives you that same great taste with the benefit of caffeination. Since no leprechaun is whole without both green and gold at hand, the beverage is topped with actual flakes of gold. (Because of this, the drink costs a little more than your usual frappuccino, but it’s worth it for the once-in-a-lifetime “I’m so baller got gold in my drink” experience.)
6. Yeti Frappuccino
On the hottest summer day, the chilliness of a Yeti Frappuccino will cool you right down. Stark white except for the tinge of blue powder at the very top, this beverage is not only cold in your hands but cold in your mouth with its sharp minty flavor.
7. Troll Frappuccino
We personally feel like trolls before we get our morning caffeine, so this frappuccino is perfect for the inner grumpy creature lurking under the bridge inside all of us. The Troll Frappuccino is dark brown in color, but don’t let that fool you: The contents are sugary deliciousness. Take a regular frappuccino, swirl in chocolate pudding, add in crushed Oreos, then top with chocolate rocks and you have the Troll.
8. Kraken Frappuccino
Fans of the salty-sweet, rejoice, for the Kraken Frappuccino is here. Matcha and salted caramel meet in this gray-green swirled beverage. The whipped cream is garnished with matcha powder and blue sea salt.
