Move Over, Unicorn Frappuccino! A New, Cooler Starbucks Dragon Frappuccino Is Up Next

Unicorns were cool while they lasted.

Make way for another mystical drink option. You’ve heard of the Unicorn Frappuccino by now because this drink was extremely popular, but what if I told you there many be a new Starbucks favorite in town. It’d be hard to believe—I know. But a new custom drink, the Dragon Frappuccino, recently showed up at Starbucks, so your enchanted creature-loving self has got an all-new coffee shop order. How about that?

The coffee chain underestimated just how popular the limited time only Unicorn Frappuccino would be, and several locations ran out of ingredients to make this magical concoction very quickly. But thankfully, baristas got super creative and may have accidentally started the next online trend.

The Dragon Frappuccino is more green in color than the Unicorn Frapp. PopSugar points out that folks on Instagram are saying this incredible drink is made using a “green tea frap [as the base] with vanilla bean powder and some berry cup swirl.” Another Instagram user pointed out that their drink even had mango sprinkles on top. Mmm. Mmm. Mmm. Where has this been all my life?

The thought of mixing green tea, vanilla and fruit together sounds absolutely amazing. Honestly, it sounds even better than the Unicorn option which was made with sweet and sour ingredients for a taste that was constantly changing. Interesting… but certainly not everyone’s favorite Starbucks drink choice.

So, will Starbucks be convinced to put this on the menu just like the Pink Drink? I sure hope so!

And most people online seem to agree. Fans of the mystical Starbucks beverages are dying to get their hands on a Dragon Frappuccino, even if it’s only to go against the whole Unicorn trend.

This may have started off as a drink with little recognition (considering it was only made out of necessity upon running out of unicorn ingredients), but something tells me it will not stay that way. The Dragon Frappuccino is only gaining in popularity. So, your move, Starbucks.
