Unicorn Frappuccino Pregnancy Announcements Are a Thing That Exists Now

By  | 

An Arizona woman was fortunate this week to discover that she was pregnant. She wants a baby so that would have been a delightful discovery even if it had happened in some basic, less-special time–like pumpkin spice season, for example–but this woman was especially #blessed to discover that she was pregnant right in the middle of the Unicorn Frappuccino moment. The Unicorn Frappuccino is the bane of baristas, but it’s a stroke of good luck for the unnamed Arizona woman who was able to tell her partner that he was going to be a father by handing him a Unicorn Frappuccino with the announcement written on the front.

According to Redbook, an Arizona barista named Julie Renee was working at Starbucks when a lady came through the drive-thru and asked them to make a Unicorn Frappuccino that said “You’re gonnna be a dad” on the front, because she’d just found out she was pregnant and was on her way to tell her partner and wanted a cute way to tell him.

The baristas were all excited for the lady and tried to make an extra pretty Unicorn Frappuccino for her.

It does look pretty cute, with its swirls of pink and blue.

“You’re gonna be a dad!” announces the mermaid in the Starbucks logo, surrounded by little hearts. Unicorn Frappuccinos may be driving the baristas of the world a little crazy, but it looks like they had fun making this one.

Renee says the lady was particularly into the idea of the Unicorn Frappuccino because the drink is made of swirls of pink and blue, which are the traditional, “It’s a baby!” colors.

The Unicorn Frappuccino is an ultra-limited offering that’s only in stores for a couple days, so this lady got pretty lucky with her timing. Only a handful of pregnant ladies will be able to announce their future babies with the trendy drink of the moment. That said, in 10 years or so they will have to explain this to their kids.

“I told your dad I was pregnant by giving him a Unicorn Frappuccino.”

“WTF is a Unicorn Frappuccino?”

Of course, now that the Unicorn Frappuccino is part of a precious memory, they’re going to want to preserve it forever as a family heirloom. Maybe they could freeze it. Or have it bronzed or encased in lucite. Any of those sounds like a better option than actually drinking the thing, because most reviewers seem to agree that the Unicorn Frappuccino tastes like crap.
