Three on Thursday

It's that time of the week again and for once, I had to limit myself to only three things!



1| Starbucks Unicorn Frappuccino

By now everyone and their mother has heard about this drink and the complaints surrounding it. First off, let me just say how tired of hearing about it I am. One, it looks like a pink nightmare. Two, yeah, there's a lot of sugar in it. What exactly is your point? Have you ever looked at the nutrition facts for the other frappuccino drinks??? SAME SUGAR CONTENT! 



This drink, if made "regular" come in with 59g of sugar. The Pokemon Go drink they offered had 69g. The Mocha has 61g and and the Green Tea Frapps has 65g. 

Get off your high horse, people. 

2| La Croix Sparkling Water

I've recently been drinking a lot of sparkling water instead of the plain old bottled stuff and I'm pretty much in love with this zero calorie/sugar bubbly. Not to mention that if you add a little tequila and some fresh fruit you've got yourself a very diet friendly cocktail. #WIN

This is their Blackberry Cucumber flavor.


3|  World of Goo

I recently started playing this game (iOS) and I'm beyond addicted. It's a paid game ($4.99) which is absurd to me but again, addicted. I spend $5 on food/stickers without a blink. At least this stimulates the brain cells. 


Bonus: WHY IS IT ONLY THURSDAY?!?!  This week has been unnecessarily long for absolutely no reason.

  1. It's so weird how a Starbucks drink can cause debate, lol. The world we live in...

    I'm going to have to try making that cocktail with LaCroix! Sounds delicious.

  2. People just like to bitch about things that other people like that just aren't up their alleys. It makes them feel important and superior. Although, I will say this: David's coworker bought him a unicorn thing on his birthday last week and he came home basically twitching, ha.

    I've tried LaCroix and my dad always used to keep flavored Vintage seltzers in the house, but I just can't. I hate sparkling water too. I love flavored water, but the bubbles make me feel weird and I feel like they alter the flavor in a weird way? I dunno. I can drink beer and red bull or soda once in a while, so I don't hate carbonation, but something about fizzy water just doesn't work for me. But I always want a La Croix when I see people drinking them! It's a struggle for damn sure.

  3. I cannot with those unicorn things. Not because of the sugar content but because it's just such a ridiculous damn thing to have come up with in the first place. Starbucks, make your coffee and be quiet. At least the other (equally terrible for you) fraps have some coffee in them. This is just nonsense.

  4. I love La Croix! My issue with the unicorn drink was just that I read what flavor it was supposed to be & it didn't sound appealing at all.

  5. I can't stop laughing about the unicorn drink thing. I feel like Starbucks is trying too hard and people are pretty annoying about it too. The La Croix sparklng water is definitely more my taste.

  6. I don't understand why you'd want a frapp without coffee? Does it have coffee? I haven't cared enough to check. Like, go get a milkshake or something instead.

    I like that particular La Croix flavor.

  7. I was a total seltzer addict too and then I got a SodaStream for Christmas and it was like A WHOLE NEW WORLD. I'd much rather drink seltzer than water, and you're right, it is WAY better for making cocktails! I know a SodaStream is a big splurge but it's so worth it to me, even the $$ for new tanks is fine because it means I don't have to carry huge heavy bottles home from the grocery store & I'm not contributing to plastic consumption or metal waste. Sorry if this comes across preachy. I just LOVE the SodaStream and think everyone needs one!
