Does the Uni Frap delight, disgust or merely foster fear?

How should the First World think about Unicorn Food, and particularly what about the Unicorn Frappuccino? This is a Starbucks product introduced Monday for five days ending Sunday. CTV writer Jackie Dunham finds that the Uni Frap has been measured by the universal social media monitor to be both delightful and disgusting. It seems to meet the “too pretty to eat” definition of all Unicorn Food. The Unicorn Frap has a “sweet dusting of pink powder, blended into a crème Frappuccino with mango syrup and layered with a pleasantly sour blue drizzle.” It is said to change colours. A young barista, Braden Burson of Monument, Colorado, has told his many (he says) followers on Twitter that he has never been so stressed out by the difficult recipe and the wearying demand.
