The Unicorn Frappuccino—a pink, blue, and purple saccharine swirl of zeitgeisty goodness—was arguably Starbucks’ smartest marketing campaign of the past decade. It never promised to taste good; all it was selling was social media shares and selfie opportunities. And in a true FOMO kicker, it disappeared as quickly as it arrived (just like its mythical inspiration).
But just because it was a marketing campaign doesn’t mean it wasn’t capable of bringing true joy, as evidenced by this video of a shelter dog enjoying a canine-version friendly of the treat.
Baby Ruth, a pittie-mix from the Front Street Animal Shelter in Sacramento, took a stroll to her local Starbucks and ordered the Unicorn Puppuccino (essentially just whipped cream and pink sprinkles). And within moments of lapping up the colorful, creamy concoction—POOF!—Baby Ruth transforms into a unicorn herself! (Big ups to Starbucks for hosting the sweet doggo!)
We, of course, believe that each and every shelter dog is a unicorn and we always and forever encourage you to #AdoptDontShop.
