Unless you were stranded in the desert post-Coachella, sans Instagram, you’re well aware that Starbucks dropped a rainbow atomic bomb this week with its Unicorn Frappuccino.

It’s impossible to miss — it looks like a vat of unicorn vomit; part cotton candy, part ground-up unicorn pool floats, part Snapchat rainbow-out-of-your-mouth filter. It changes colors. And it’s somehow more ridiculous than Zoolander’s Orange Mocha Frappuccino.

But reportedly, baristas hate making it. Apparently it tastes like “sour birthday cake mixed with a creamsicle covered in Pixie Stix and a healthy sprinkling of despair” (sorry, I won’t try it). Katy Perry couldn’t handle more than a sip, and she bleeds candy, rainbows, and unicorns.

So what’s really in it? We investigated and found the nutrition facts, calories, sugar, and ingredients for the Unicorn Frapp. And oh baby, it’s just as much of an abomination as you’d imagine.

Accordingly to Starbucks’ official site, one large Unicorn Frappuccino clocks in at a whopping 500 calories and 76g of sugar. That officially makes it one of the most fat-inducing cocktails on earth, and one of the worst fast food items available.

It also has NO COFFEE. Zero caffeine. *Shudders*

AND THAT INGREDIENT LIST, THOUGH. Complete with three different types of drizzles & powders!2

Ice, Milk, Crème Frappuccino Syrup [Water, Sugar, Salt, Natural And Artificial Flavor, Xanthan Gum, Potassium Sorbate, Citric Acid], Whipped Cream [Cream (Cream, Mono And Diglycerides, Carageenan), Vanilla Syrup (Sugar, Water, Natural Flavors, Potassium Sorbate, Citric Acid)], Mango Syrup [Sugar, Water, Mango Juice Concentrate, Natural Flavor, Passion Fruit Juice Concentrate, Citric Acid, Potassium Sorbate, Turmeric, Gum Arabic], Blue Drizzle [White Chocolate Mocha Sauce (Sugar, Condensed Skim Milk, Coconut Oil, Cocoa Butter, Natural Flavor, Salt, Potassium Sorbate, Monoglycerides), Classic Syrup (Sugar, Water, Natural Flavors, Potassium Sorbate, Citric Acid), Sour Blue Powder (Citric Acid, Color [Spirulina, Water, Sugar, Maltodextrin, Citric Acid])], Pink Powder [Dextrose, Fruit And Vegetable Color (Apple, Cherry, Radish, Sweet Potato)], Sour Blue Powder [Citric Acid, Color (Spirulina, Water, Sugar, Maltodextrin, Citric Acid)].

Do it for the ‘gram, but don’t actually drink the thing. It’s available until Sunday, April 23rd. Good riddance (*insert praise hands emoji*).
