Stephen Colbert Tries New Starbucks Unicorn Frappuccino: 'I Wish I Was Dead'

He finishes his rant with a final plea: "For the love of god and everything that is good, don't get the unicorn frappuccino".

But some customers who have tried the drink aren't impressed with the taste.

Starbucks debuted its unicorn Frappuccino on Wednesday, and while aesthetically pleasing and so on-trend for the Internet it's nearly passé, the drink's taste didn't sit well with some consumers.

Burson, who said the new pink-and-blue drink "tastes like a Sweet Tart", filmed the video in his vehicle.

Another person made a YouTube video ranting about how hard it is to actually make the drink and that it can be messy.

Bill O'Reilly is out at Fox News
Last July, Fox News's then chairman, Roger Ailes, was forced out amid allegations that he sexually harassed numerous women. O'Reilly on Wednesday blamed his ouster on "unfounded claims" hours after Fox News announced his departure.

"Because it's been so popular online everyone is like 'oh my gosh I need to try it when it comes out, '" he says in the video.

"My hands are sticky". The pink is mango creme flavor (filled with artificial coloring) and the blue is sour syrup.

Honestly, I totally thought a Unicorn Frappuccino was very on brand for Perry, but I guess this is a situation of something being a little too close to home. I have never been so stressed out. It's so hard to make. It is not without critics, including Griffith's Grindhouse Cafe, which tweeted "Unicorn Frappuccinos drool, Cactor rules", alluding to its own seasonal slushy fruit beverage.

"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 Seattle-based coffee shop giant said in a press release.

Starbucks saying in a statement it is reaching out to Burson "to talk about his experience and how to make it better".
