Step Aside Starbucks Unicorn Frapp, Check Out 25 Unicorn Treats In NJ


Starbucks hopped on the unicorn food trend earlier this week and added a magical new limited-edition treat to their drink menu: the Starbucks Unicorn Frappuccino, a bright milk and mango creme blend topped with dusted vanilla whip. It’s incredibly popular, incredibly pink, and apparently incredibly sweet.

The mystical rainbow and unicorn treats are a food trend we can get behind here at NJMOM HQ. But, while we’re swooning over it’s pretty pink-dusted whip and color-changing magic, the Unicorn Frapp’s origins (sorry Starbucks, we #supportlocal) and price tag have us less enchanted.

Still craving magical Unicorn vibes? Yah, us too.

We’ve pulled together 25 far superior unicorn treats available around New Jersey at local bakeries, bread, donut and juice shops (organic, to boot). And, to make things even sweeter, we’ve teamed up with the first five businesses {what’s up Broad Street Dough Co, Coney Waffle, Bagel Nook, Lil Cutie Pop’s and Juice Basin} to offer a very special #NJMOM Unicorn treat at their respective locations. Be sure to hashtag #NJMOM (and #NJMOMunicornchallenge) while you’re enjoying the unicorn amazingness around New Jersey all week (or, year?).

1. Step aside Starbucks Frappa ??, say hello to our #NJMOM Unicorn Shake at Coney Waffle in Long Branch, Belmar and Asbury Park.

Here’s another shot of the #NJMOM Unicorn Shake:

6. Substitute that Starbucks Frapp for a healthier option at Playa Bowls. The Pink Pitaya smoothie is made with real fruit and is low in sugar and high in fiber. This unicorn-colored drink will keep you fueled {and happy} throughout your magical days.

7. Asbury Park’s Confections of a Rockstar Unicorn-topped cake FTW. Don’t save it for a special occasion, get the cake and MAKE it a special occasion.
