It took just a few days for Starbucks to completely sell out of its Unicorn Frappuccino when it went on sale in April.

After running out of the ingredients to make the Unicorn Frappuccino, a Starbucks barista in Michigan came up with her own concoction, the Mermaid Frappuccino.

She made it by adding freeze-dried blackberries to a vanilla bean base.

Jócelyn Freeman says her Mermaid Frappuccino is very similar to the Pokémon Go Frappuccino sold last year. The difference is Freeman's creation uses a toasted coconut matcha sauce instead of raspberry syrup as a topping.

If you want to try out the Mermaid Frappuccino you will have to tell your local barista how to make it as it is not on the Starbucks menu.

What is on Starbucks menu now is the Midnight Mint Mocha Frappuccino. The company rolled out the drink on Tuesday.

It includes scoops of extra dark cocoa which is blended with coffee, milk and ice and infused with mint sugar crystals. The drink is topped with whipped cream and a dusting of cocoa powder.

If you are wondering, a grande size Midnight Mint Mocha Frappuccino has 470 calories, 350mg of sodium, 52g of sugar and 80mg of caffeine.

Starbucks is also bringing back its S'mores Frappuccino. Both drinks are part of Starbucks’s annual Frappuccino Happy Hour promotion. From May 5 to 14, all Frappuccinos are half-price between 3:00 and 6:00 p.m.
