Do you know what a Frappuccino is? The word Frappuccino is a combination of frappe and cappuccino. A frappe is like a milkshake. A cappuccino is espresso with milk. Put those together and you have a delicious, sweet beverage: the Frappuccino. If you have been to Starbucks, you probably do know what a Frappuccino is.

Starbucks didn’t create the recipe. But they have made many different kinds of unique and original flavors! Don’t be under the impression that a Frappuccino is just coffee, milk, and sugar. Oh, no! Starbucks has Java Chip, Peppermint Mocha, Strawberries and Cream, and most recently: the Unicorn flavor. The unicorn flavor is a medley of neon swirls and sweet things.

Andy can’t wait to try the Unicorn flavor Frappuccino. Dominique thinks it is poison. Listen as they discuss in today’s English lesson.

Andy_H:  Yo, Dominique. I just used an internet app, ordered a Unicorn Frappuccino, and it’s going to be here in about five minutes. Are you jealous?

Dominique:  A unicorn what?

Andy_H:  It’s a Unicorn Frappuccino. It’s the coolest drink you could imagine. It’s essentially the it thing right now. It’s a medley of wonderful rainbow swirls all in a taste sensation that says unicorn.

Dominique:  OK, so first I would have to be under the impression that unicorns do exist. So, I’m just going to have to try to believe that they do. And now, I’m going to have to… I mean, what is a unicorn and what do they taste like?

Andy_H:  Uh… Well, I, um… They taste like… sugar? Honestly, I have no idea! I’m ordering it so that I can find out! You’re unimpressed.

Dominique:  Yeah, I’m very unimpressed. I mean, I’ve never seen one before. Is it like the blood of a child? The sweat of a kid? What is it?

Andy_H:  I mean, I’m sure it’s not that extreme. I know it’s got neon swirls. And… sprinkles! Rainbow sprinkles!

Dominique:  Poison! And poison on top of poison… I mean, diabetes and stuff. OK.

Andy_H:  I’m very quickly regretting my decision.

Dominique:  Yeah. You should.

Andy_H:  OK, it sounds kind of frivolous now to drink this thing.

Dominique:  I have some water.

Andy_H:  I think I’m going to stick with that.

Dominique:  You should.

Andy_H:  OK.

I’m curious about the ideia to drink this blended unicorn beverage! I have seen it a lot of times, and always have my attention because of the creamy top. I love cream! All that color… should be a sweet drink, so delicous for sure!

However American Coffee always win!

I hate to go to starbucks, all the products are expensive and not healty.

No. I am not interested in any drinkings. But I would thought it were not delicious.  Colorful drinks must be added pigments and other additives which are not good for healthy.
