To celebrate Spider-Man: Homecoming swinging into theaters this week, Sony Pictures set up hidden cameras at a Starbucks in New York City and watched as Spider-Man dropped down from the ceiling to grab his coffee and surprise unsuspecting customers.
The elusive unicorn from medieval legend has been making a comeback. Once only found in enchanted forests, unicorns have been popping up in social media with shimmering unicorn-themed food and drinks. Now Starbucks is taking the trend to a new level with its first Unicorn Frappuccino blended beverage, available starting Wednesday, April 19, through Sunday, April 23, while supplies last.
The Unicorn Frappuccino blended crème is made with a sweet dusting of pink powder, blended into a crème Frappuccino with mango syrup and layered with a pleasantly sour blue drizzle. It is finished with vanilla whipped cream and a sprinkle of sweet pink and sour blue powder topping.
Like its mythical namesake, the Unicorn Frappuccino blended crème comes with a bit of magic, starting as a purple beverage with swirls of blue and a first taste that is sweet and fruity. But give it a stir and its color changes to pink, and the flavor evolves to tangy and tart. The more swirl, the more the beverage’s color and flavors transform.
This limited-time offering is as fleeting as a rainbow, available April 19-23, while supplies last in participating Starbucks stores in the United States, Canada and Mexico.

The most popular adult Halloween costumes of 2015 are expected to be U.S. presidential candidates, emojis and Star Wars characters. And the most popular beverage of the season may be a fang-tastic new Starbucks Frappuccino blended beverage.
Starbucks launched its first Halloween Frappuccino in the United States and Canada with the green tea Franken Frappuccino in 2014. Now it’s going global with vampire-inspired Starbucks Frappuccino blended beverages for a limited time at the end of this month.
Frappula Frappuccino blended beverage is made with white chocolate sauce, milk and ice blended together then layered between mocha sauce and a dollop of whipped cream. A drizzle of raspberry syrup oozes from the rim, which is finished with whipped cream on top. U.S. stores will offer the Frappuccino between October 28-31.
