The ombre-colored dye literally looks like the Starbucks concoction, down to the pink, blue, and violet hues.

By now you are aware of, and have probably formed a very strong opinion on, Unicorn Frappuccinos.

Starbucks said in a statement on Thursday that the popular reception of the drink has "exceeded everyone's expectations".

Sugar is the core ingredient of the syrups and sauces that give the drink it's taste and unique color.

Turns out, unicorns are hard to corral in Northwest Indiana. "It was truly one of the worst things I have ever drank [sic] in my life".

"Please don't get it!" the barista from Colorado pleaded in a YouTube video that's since been deleted. "If you love us as baristas, don't order it!"

Katy Perry tried the Unicorn Frappuccino and, well, she was not a fan.

Personally, I always pictured unicorn blood as the silver Elixir of Life liquid described in "Harry Potter", but I guess this Lisa Frank rendition makes sense, too.

The Unicorn Frappuccino is taking newsfeeds by storm, presumably because it was invented for the sheer goal of filling Instagram with cups of multi-colored froth that make Tumblr-enthusiasts squeal and cynical 20-somethings roll their eyes so far into the backs of the head, they go blind. It also has to be said that the drink perhaps wasn't designed with taste as a primary consideration.

The Late Show host Stephen Colbert dedicated an entire segment to the beverage, even taking a sip of one on air. "Throughout the year we offer Frappuccino drinks that celebrate the flavors of the season and are routinely available for a limited time, but we'll always have tasty flavors to enjoy", the company said.
