As a kid you likely believed that Disneyland was the most magical place on earth. Heck, maybe you still think it is. But if you're looking for further proof of that fact, look no further. Because a Starbucks in Disneyland has created the perfect concoction to replace all your Unicorn Frappuccino cravings. So what is the Pink Pegasus? Well, if you already miss the Unicorn Frappuccino, you're in luck, because this unofficial drink doesn't come with an end date.
While Starbucks' highly-buzzed about and obsessively Instagrammed Unicorn Frappuccino officially ran it's limited-time course on Sunday, one franchise in Disneyland created its own version of the brightly-colored drink when they ran out of the Unicorn Frappuccino's required ingredients. The so-called "Pink Pegasus" Frappuccino consists of "a white mocha and raspberry-flavored drink without all of the sour blue ingredients of its multicolored counterpart," according to E! News. And while it seems that, for now, the Pink Pegasus is only available at the Disneyland Starbucks, hopefully the craze will catch on, because the reviews of the new drink make it sound truly magical.
Even though the new drink doesn't include the sour blue addition of the Unicorn Frappuccino, the lack of multi-dimensional color doesn't mean the Pink Pegasus is missing out on flavor.
While the Unicorn Frappuccino's base was a blend of mango, blended cream, and a sweetly-sour kick to top it off, the Pink Pegasus relies on pure "pink magic," to give it it's enchanting flavor. Well that, and raspberries.
And as everyone who's been lucky enough to taste it can attest to, the Pink Pegasus may just put the Unicorn Frappuccino to shame. Some are even saying that it's "what the Unicorn Frapp should have tasted like," and unlike the controversy behind the original mystical frappuccino, no one has complained about the flavor of this new drink.
Unfortunately, though, it seems that the Pegasus Pink Frappuccino was created out of necessity, and may not be taken to the nationwide platform that the Unicorn drink was.
There have also been reports of a Disney creation called a "Pink Flamingo" Frappuccino, although those haven't been confirmed. And while the Pink Pegasus is so far only at Disneyland, maybe the higher ups at Starbucks will take notice of its popularity and give it a promotion.
Whatever the case, the Pink Pegasus looks truly magical, and maybe if you're lucky, your local Starbucks barista will be kind enough to whip one up for you — just make sure to ask nicely.
