5 Signs We've Reached Unicorn Frappucino Madness

We don't think anyone could have predicted the mania that followed Starbucks' recent release of their unicorn frappucino.

When Starbucks announced the release of the unicorn frappucino last week, it didn't take a genius to know that it was going to be a hit. With unicorns being front and center of the trend-scene over the course of the past few months, it was no surprise that people were excited.

However, we don't think anyone could have predicted just ~how~ psyched fans (ahem, maybe fanatics would be more appropriate?) would be. These five signs are proof that we have officially reached total unicorn frappucino mania.

1. A Straw On Top

It's no secret that the unicorn frappe is pretty darn good-looking, but apparently it's actually attractive enough to inspire a hairstyle. Kelly Woodford, a hair stylist from Winnipeg, Canada, gave her client the colorful dye job, and she even stuck a straw in it to finish the look. Because obviously it wouldn't be a frappucino without one.

2. Unicorn Frappucino Nails

Sure, you might have seen unicorn nails steal the show a few months ago, but step aside becuase unicorn frappucino nails are the new ~it~ manicure. Just check out those mini drinks; so cute!

3. The Snapchat Filter

Every major event needs it's own Snapchat filter, so it should be no surprise that the most snapchat-able (is that a word?) drink OTY gets the honor. People went crazy for the sparky selfies with their colorful drinks, and we can't blame them!

4. "Sold out" Signs

Just days after the annoucement of the drink, Twitter and Instagram were flooded with complaints that tons of local Starbucks locations were sold out of unicorn frappucino ingredients. The 'bucks hasn't yet announced if the drink will be back or ingredients will be restocked, but you can bet there will be a line of happy people if they are!

5. Katy Perry's Magical Transformation

It turns out that it's not just us mere mortals who have been taken over by Starbucks' latest brew. Katy Perry, who is probably the closest thing to the human-version of a unicorn as it can get, posted a photo to her Instagram story while taking a sip of her own mythical frappucino.

Look closely, and you can see that between her flowy, platinum strands (that she specifically donned for the pic), a pink smokey eye, and her magical glow, it's obvious that a) you really are what you eat, and b) this drink's powers go way beyond what we had originally anticipated!
