2. Unicorn Frappuccino from Starbucks
Starbucks makes a lot of things great, but this creation not only deserved to be on this list, but it deserves its Silver medal in the worst-of-the-worst.
To this very day, I can’t fathom why Starbucks thought that the Unicorn Frappuccino was a good idea. Sure, Starbucks is famous for its innovative drinks, but this one? Oh, this drink was a disaster from the moment it went out of their test kitchen. It’s so bad that it has its own Wikipedia page.
So, what went wrong with the Unicorn Frappuccino? Everything.
Created in the Spring of 2017, the Unicorn Frappuccino was made out of ice, milk, pink powder, sour blue powder, creme Frappuccino syrup, mango syrup, and blue drizzle. Soon after the drink was released, it was panned by health advocates. The Unicorn Frappuccino had a whopping 500 calories, 18 grams of fat, and 76 grams of sugar. That count, folks, could easily qualify this drink as a substitute for crack.
The Unicorn Frappuccino was available only for a limited time in April of that year, but it was quickly apparent that the drink was made more for Instagram photos than for actual drinking, as one hit of it would keep you up for about a week.
It was fun while it lasted, but the truth of the matter is that the Unicorn Frappuccino was one of the few mistakes (product-wise) taken by the famed coffee chain.
