Anthony Bourdain Weighs in on Starbucks' Controversial Unicorn Frappuccino
The Unicorn Frappuccino may be getting ample Instagram attention, but expect no love from Anthony Bourdain
“[It’s] like four things I hate all in one sentence: Starbucks, unicorns, and the colors pink and purple,” Bourdain, 60, riffed in a recent interview with Town & Country.
Celebrity chefMario Batali was not having the sugar-packed beverage either, which Starbucks described as being “made with a sweet dusting of pink powder, blended into a crème Frappuccino with mango syrup and layered with a pleasantly sour blue drizzle,” then finished with “vanilla whipped cream and a sprinkle of sweet pink and sour blue powder topping.”
“What does that even mean? The word ‘powder’ tells you a lot about that. I’ve been warned about powders all my life. Trying to stay off of them!” Batali joked to PEOPLE at the celebrity chef-studded Can Do Awards dinner benefitting the Food Bank for New York City on Wednesday.

Perry seemed excited to sip the drink at first. But as it hit her mouth, her face changed to that of disgust — and she quickly spit it out.
“I couldn’t handle drinking my own blood,” she wrote on the photo — adding a unicorn emoji to insinuate that she herself is a unicorn.
The drink is available until April 23.
