There's a good chance Anthony Bourdain won't take a sip of Starbucks' Unicorn Frappucino even if it's the last drink on earth. Bourdain joined a list of celebrities and even Starbucks baristas who thought the new limited-edition was just awful.

Anthony Bourdain bluntly told Town & Country in a recent interview what he thought of Starbucks' Unicorn Frappucino. The frozen drink might have been the latest fad for Starbucks lovers but Bourdain dismissed the Frappucino as simply "the perfect nexus of awfulness." It's got everything he hates "all in one sentence: Starbucks, unicorns, and the colors pink and purple." He even added, "Just add pumpkin spice to that mix, and you can nuke the whole country."

Starbucks' Unicorn Frappucino which Anthony Bourdain clearly hated made a fleeting appearance in the market from April 19 to April 23. Starbucks described the experimental drink as a color and flavor-changing blended crème made of pink powder, mango syrup and sour blue drizzle topped with vanilla whipped cream and sprinkled with the pink and blue-colored sweet powder. Starbucks' Unicorn Frappucino caused a stir online, but it also drew flak from other celebrities aside from Anthony Bourdain.

On ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" Thursday's episode, the late-night comedian-host mocked Starbucks' Unicorn Frappucino as Starbucks' "latest abomination." Like Anthony Bourdain, Kimmel ridiculed the pink Frappucino which he said was "the first cappuccino that looks like a windbreaker from the '80s" and that "it's got everything in it, but coffee." In response to the sensational Starbucks' Unicorn Frappucino, Kimmel made his own new drink to "specifically suit our troubled time" and called it "F--k-it-ccino," according to Business Insider.

Like Starbucks' Unicorn Frappucino, Kimmel's own concoction include everything from pancake butter to French fries. Unlike the Starbucks drink, however, Kimmel said his "F--k-it-ccino" has some coffee in it. Anthony Bourdain still said he doesn't like anything Frappucino.
