Luckily, these unicorn pups aren’t limited edition and will always be available to love!

You may have heard about the limited-time only Unicorn Frappuccino that Starbucks invented for only a few days. If you didn’t hear about it (really?), check out Twitter, Facebook, Snapchat, and Instagram to see all the picture posts of this peculiar beverage. Seriously, if you didn’t take a photo of the drink — either before or while you drank it –, did you even get one? Pics or it didn’t happen.
Starbucks described the drink as:
“The flavor-changing, color-changing, totally not-made-up Unicorn Frappuccino. Magical flavors start off sweet and fruity transforming to pleasantly sour. Swirl it to reveal a color-changing spectacle of purple and pink. It’s finished with whipped cream-sprinkled pink and blue fairy powders.”
Who knew there was such a thing as “pleasantly sour”? We didn’t think anything like that could exist.

Apparently, it’s not the only funky frapp we can expect this year. Since it sold out in stores and bumped sales, Starbucks advised their loyal fan base to “stay tuned.” Starbucks CEO Kevin Johnson told CNBC, “We will bring at least one new entirely new drink into Happy Hour this year that is going to be as good as Unicorn or better.” If these new drinks are as popular as the Unicorn Frappuccino, Starbucks lovers will have to brace themselves for longer wait times as people purchase the newest silly drink that looks better than it tastes.

This brings us to the most important part of this unicorn frenzy. While the Frappuccino may have been a hypebeast, dogs are the ultimate hypebeasts and have been since they could wear unicorn horns. You’ve already seen a few dogs ft. unicorn horns, but there are more to come!
Now, prepare your hearts for the next best thing we have to actual unicorns – unicorn dogs.
Unlike the Frap, unicorn dogs are unique and style their own horns.

A tiny trendsetter! This little Puggo-unicorn hybrid may not be as majestic in her stride as an actual unicorn, but she’ll definitely snort one into oblivion. Snorting is underrated, but it’s definitely more powerful than striding.

This pupper-unicorn may not survive if you release her into the wild, but she’ll definitely be the best indoor unicorn you could ask for. Imagine all the slumber parties and movie marathons you’ll be able to do with a trusty unicorn by your side.

Lola knows what’s trending in the coffee world and demanded two Unicorn Frapps. Since she’s the only unicorn around, she needed some semblance of company. Hey, unicorns get lonely, too. On a side note, I’d really like to hear her thoughts on this beverage.
You can’t eat or drink these unicorn dogs, but that’s a good thing since you’ll want to enjoy them forever!

Just look at how cute Poppy the Westie-unicorn is! Wouldn’t you want to snuggle this “fantastical beast” all day, every day?
Someone spotted this wiener dog dressed for the occasion. Obviously you need to put your unicorn ‘guise on to get the Unicorn Frappuccino. There is no other way.

This unicorn may not smell like flowers, but he will bring you lots of licks, kisses, and snuggles. We want snuggles! We want snuggles!
Apparently, a group of unicorns is a blessing, and these unicorn dogs have blessed us with their presence!

This Pibble-unicorn looks oh-so-fierce with his horn! He’s probably waiting for all his other majestic unicorn friends to come over so they can do unicorn things. Wait, what do unicorns do?

Zelda the UniDog is a professional unicorn dog and wears her horn proudly every day! We’d be silly not to include her. Her magical horn is a part of her identity.

Not all unicorns are alike and that’s another thing that makes them special. This chubby Shiba-unicorn is a little lost and confused, but we love him anyways!
The Unicorn-Frappuccino frenzy may have only lasted a few days, but the dog frenzy will last forever.
