I have been giving this a fair amount of thought since I first learned of the highly anticipated release of a new drink on the Starbucks menu, the Unicorn Frappuccino.
Now, just let me say, that I rarely weigh in on thee types of “hot button” issues, but this cause is way too important for me to remain mum. My silence would be paramount to culpability, and I need to be able to sleep at night with a clear conscience.
So, with that said, here are the reasons why I will be saying NO to the new Unicorn Frappuccino…
First and foremost, it’s not vegan.
And thank goodness I don’t have to worry about this particular conundrum, since clearly, if it’s in fact made with real Unicorns, its totally NOT vegan.
Secondly, I am not a monster.
But, if I were a carnivore of mystical creatures, I would be curious to know if it is derived from organic, sustainable Unicorn magic, or if the “mystical” components are just refined pre-packaged concentrated whimsy, or processed imitation rainbows from a can.
It’s important to be informed about the widespread use of GMU’s (genetically modified Unicorn’s).
