With gleaming red, yellow and blue hues, the tropical drink shares a creme Frappuccino base that tastes more like a dozen of your favorite fruits blended with dashes of turmeric, red beet and spirulina.

Starbucks is hoping to replicate the success it had with the Unicorn Frappuccino in 2017.

Here's how Starbucks describes the Tye-Dye Frappuccino: "This deliciously fruity drink is vibrant with red, blue and yellow tie-dye swirls, topped with vanilla whipped cream, and dusted with red, blue and yellow powder".

But according to Business Insider, the Unicorn drink did prove to be a hit among social media users who featured it in about 180,000 Instagram posts.

We have creating a drink that celebrates summer with it's people.

Just take note that the Tie-Dye Frappuccino will only be available for a few days starting July 10, 2019 for a limited time, while supplies last. Despite the variety of visual tones in the drink, the flavor is all banana (with maybe a hint of coconut?). Perhaps, like my experience, it was at summer camp as you marveled at those cool, colorful concentric circles you could make by rubber-banding part of a plain white T and dipping it into various buckets of brightly-tinted dyes.

Unfortunately, just like so many of Starbucks' fan favorites, the Tie-Dye Frappuccino will only be available for a limited time.
