A Texas coffee shop claims Starbucks ripped off the Unicorn Frappuccino


Starbucks' Unicorn Frappuccino is...well, unique. It seems so weird, it  just had to have been an original idea. Right?

Well, not exactly, according to Frank & Joe's Coffee House in Wichita Falls, Texas. The coffee shop claims it started selling a unicorn frap weeks before the Starbucks version hit stores, ruining barista's lives everywhere. The hashtag #originalunicornfrap is a sign of their attempts to reclaim the drink.

Frank & Joe's posted this evidence on Instagram.

They're both pretty good, but the STarbucks one was kind of watered down.

The drink isn't exactly the same as Starbucks' sweet and sour creation. Frank & Joe's blend is a "strawberry frap with triple berry homemade whipped cream and pretty sprinkles."

Local news station KAUZ polled locals, who seemed to favor the non-Starbucks version. 

While Starbucks' drink is only available through Sunday, this version will be sold year-round.
