True 'Harry Potter' Fans Will Never, Ever Drink Unicorn Frappuccinos

Accio any other drink at Starbucks.

On Wednesday, the popular coffee brand broke the internet when it debuted its new Unicorn Frappuccino.

The frozen drink is made with mango syrup, a sour blue drizzle, and topped with vanilla whipped cream and sweet pink and sour blue powder.

Naturally, many find the cotton-candy-colored concoction pretty magical.

But the idea of drinking the essence of a unicorn is unsettling to “Harry Potter” fans, who are quick to point out that in the beloved series by J.K. Rowling the drinking of unicorn’s blood isn’t exactly a great thing.

In fact, it’s downright despicable.

Allow this excerpt from Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone to explain why the drinking of unicorn blood could make your house lose, like, 92,480,234,823,098 gazillion points:

“Only one who has nothing to lose, and everything to gain, would commit such a crime. The blood of a unicorn will keep you alive, even if you are an inch from death, but at a terrible price. You have slain something so pure and defenseless to save yourself, you will have but a half-life, a cursed life, from the moment the blood touches your lips.”

Drinking unicorn blood was one of the many ways in which Voldemort, the series’ main antagonist, keeps himself alive.

And thus, lovers of the wizarding world made their feelings about the trendy drink known on the interwebs.

Yet, despite its taboo nature, some “Harry Potter” fans just can’t seem to help themselves from giving into the power of Starbucks.
