Starbucks is only 3 days into their 5 day “Unicorn Frappuccino” promotion and they’re already selling out. At this point, if you live on the Mississippi Gulf Coast, you’ll probably have more luck finding a real Unicorn than a Unicorn Frappuccino.
The coffee giant planned to sell the colorful drinks April 19-23 or “while supplies last.” The Unicorn Frappuccino craze spread quickly around the MS Gulf Coast with one Starbucks, located in Crossroads Parkway in Gulfport, selling out after making 360 Unicorn Fraps in 8 hours.
It’s beginning to look like my plan of enjoying 1 a day for 5 days is quickly starting to unravel. I’ve been calling around to our local Starbucks and so far haven’t found any who aren’t sold out.
Starbucks at the Shoppes at Popps Ferry said they sold out earlier today after selling around 200 drinks.
Ocean Springs Starbucks reports selling out on the first day with about 500 Unicorn Fraps sold at their location.
Promenade Starbucks inside Target sold out midday on Thursday, April 20th.
D’iberville Starbucks sold out around 7pm on the first day with one employee telling me she’d “never seen anything like it” in terms of how fast they sold out.
So….to answer the question “Where to find a Unicorn Frappuccino on the Mississippi Gulf Coast?” Well, your guess is as good as mine as my search has turned up empty. If YOU find one please let us know where you found it in the comment section.
Also, share your thoughts on the Unicorn Frappuccino. Did you try it? Did you like it? Would you try it again?
IMO – I loved it, glad I got the chance to try one and I’ll certainly be first in line when and if they sell them again!
