  1. Early feedback is not very good. I am going to pass unless it gets a lot of praise. I feel like starbucks tries to bank on colorful looking drinks which are underwhelming in taste and overpriced.

  2. I’ll get it to say I tried it but if the rumors are true that it tastes like banana Laffy Taffy then I’m not excited. I hate fake banana lol

  3. I missed the unicorn frappuccino, so I made sure to get a tie dye one today. I figured I would be disappointed, and I was sadly right. Visually, it sucked. It was only bright yellow so it looked more like a summer sunshine frappuccino. Taste wise, it was lightly fruity. The aftertaste was a little nasty imo. Others have described it as a mild fruity pebbles flavor. It’s obviously gimmicky but really not worth the hype.

  4. Starbucks should be focusing on flavors instead of the visual instagrammy look. Banana Cream Frappuccino would been an better approach. Or even blueberry lemonade frappuccino.
