The Unicorn frappuccino being offered by Starbucks has quickly become a social media sensation. You've likely already seen a plenty of images from your friends who are enjoying the bright purple and pink concoction in your online feeds.
And while unicorn mania is sweeping the nations Snapchat feeds, the poor baristas tasked with creating the bright and colorful drinks are having a noticeably different reaction.
Baristas say they're having a hard time keeping up with the demand from consumers.

IF YOU LOVE YOUR BARISTA OR YOUR HEALTH DONT ORDER THE UNICORN— Jordan Febreze (@JordanFebreze) April 21, 2017

Stop ordering that bullshit Unicorn Frappuccino
It's gross, it's over priced, & it's a pain to make
The Unicorn Frap is only available for a limited time (to the relief of many Starbucks employees to be sure). If there's one lesson to be found in all the anger and frustration online, it's this: If you're going to order the Unicorn Frappuccino, it's probably best to include a hefty tip for the besieged baristas.
We'll let Mary have the last word.
