Introducing the Tie-Dye Frappuccino, a colorful fruity concoction of red, blue and yellow swirls.

Starbuck's just released their new Instagram-friendly rainbow Tie-Dye Frappucino.

While the allure of a limited-time drink is understandable, here's a word of nutrition-based caution: The American Heart Association recommends that the average male human eat no more than nine teaspoons of added sugar (or 150 calories, or 36 grams) per day to stay healthy.

Agut is excited to face the defending champion, especially after the run that he has had in the tournament so far. Federer is aiming for his 21st Grand Slam title, while Nadal (18) and Djokovic (15) look to close the gap.

The new Instagram-friendly drink has been much-anticipated by consumers, especially after the popularity of the Unicorn Frappuccino past year. Even with all the reservations about this new trendy drink, we chose to order the beverage just to see if it was even worth all the hype. The Tie-Dye Frappuccino has a tropical fruit flavor that will take you to your happiest place. 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. Go to Starbucks and get a latte or iced coffee instead.

The cost for a grande Tie-Dye Frappuccino at a Central Massachusetts Starbucks location Wednesday cost $5.45. At first sip, it was obvious you taste more of an overpowering banana flavor with a hint of vanilla.
