READ: The new craze around is the Unicorn Frappuccino, and do you want to know what makes it so delicious? It's not the rainbows or the "magic." So what is it?


For starters, a standard Unicorn Frappuccino is made with whole milk and whipped cream. A grande has 410 calories (though of course this info changes if you get a lower-fat or non-dairy milk, or skip the whipped cream).Aside from the milk and ice, the Unicorn Fappuccino is made with a bunch of flavored syrups and sauces (Starbucks' Crème Frappuccino Syrup, vanilla syrup, mango syrup, classic syrup, and white chocolate mocha sauce), and the fairy powders are actually a mixture of sugar and food colorings made from fruit and vegetables.

What really jumps out of this is the SUGAR! in fact, every single ingredient has sugar in it, as shown below:

As you can see, all of the listed boxed items are sugar! In fact, as shown in the nutrition facts, this drink technically has 59 grams if you order a grande size (Medium). So how much is that exactly? It's about 15 tablespoons of sugar. 

If that doesn't seem like much, the American Heart Association states you should limit your diet to 6-9 tablespoons of sugar per day. Which means this drink alone contains about 1 and a half times the amount of sugar in a whole day! 

So what you can really be thankful for tonight, is that this sugary drink is only available until April 23rd!
