Starbucks is calling a limited-time beverage that changes colours and flavours with a stir of the straw a "Unicorn Frappuccino."

The chain says the drink was inspired by the trend of unicorn-themed food online and starts out purple with a sweet and fruity taste. It changes to pink and tart after it's stirred to mix in a blue drizzle.

However, the remarkable drink won't be available in New Zealand.

It will be available from April 19 to April 23 in the United States, Canada and Mexico, with a 12-ounce size containing 280 calories.

The drink has been described by The Washington Post as tasting of "sour birthday cake and shame". YUM!
