Christy Eats It #1 – Starbucks Unicorn Frappuccino

Starbucks Limited Edition Unicorn Frappuccino

Starbucks Unicorn Frappuccino

Welcome to the long awaited and highly anticipated debut of the Gallery’s new series, “Christy Eats It”! I’m basically going to try all those weird fad foods that come out so you don’t have to! (Unless you’re into that sort of thing, in which case, knock yourself out!)

In the series premier, I review the Limited Edition Starbucks Unicorn Frappuccino. Starbucks has basically been “leaking” news about this drink for weeks to build up the hype and some of the stores literally started running out of the ingredients yesterday, ON THE LAUNCH DATE. Baristas apparently hate it because they’ve already made so many. However, since I live in Jacksonville, Florida, a city which is just un-cool enough to catch and ride the fad-wave but not actually “drop in” (think Point Break), I was able to snag one.

Here’s what I thought.

Author:
Christy Stevens used to be known as Christy Ramsey but due to centuries-old romanticized marriage traditions, she no longer goes by that name, no matter what Acadia wants to think. She’s been on the internet since before there was internet but is mostly movie and TV illiterate. She can fake her way through most pop culture references based partially on internet research and her ridiculously strong context clues skills. She’s a native Floridian (a rarity indeed) and fully owns that her home state is full of crazies and creatures that would eat you as soon as look at you. She used to be a writer, moderator and member of a comedy website but it shut down on April Fool’s Day a few years ago and apparently the joke isn’t over yet. She lives with her husband, Jay, her 9 year old son, 2 dogs, 3 cats and 1 horse. Most times, when she’s not actively coming up with excuses to not write for Acadia, she can be found gardening, riding her horse and other one-percenting things.

    I have to know what is in your back seat. It’s been bugging me throughout the while video!

      LULZ. It’s a blue wooden table and a vacuum cleaner. I had grabbed the last stuff out of our rental house.

    I’m so glad my suggestion was the first one to get used.

      I don’t think I can keep doing the series if I’m in traction.

    I thought ‘Eats it’ meant something else too… Frankly I was disappointed it wasn’t that ‘something else’

    Why stop at a BMX. Let’s get you doing this out of a plane, w/o a parachute.

    So glad you did this so I didn’t have to.

Let us know what you think. Being on-topic is NOT required.
