Surely you have seen the unending #unicornfrappuccino posts on Instagram. It seems like everybody is getting in on the blue and pink craze and there doesn’t seem to be an end in sight. The concha recently got it’s own unicorn “upgrade” and now the elote has fallen victim to the craze. Seriously. A little restaurant called E-Lokos has given the classic elote a unicorn makeover and people have feelings about it on both ends of the spectrum.
Here’s a photo of the unicorn elote that is causing all the buzz.
En E-Lokos seguimos creando locuras! Ahora para ustedes y solo por tiempo limitado el E-Unicornio! No te quedes sin el tuyo y corre a visitarnos, hasta agotar existencias!
E-Lokos, Fantásticamente Deliciosos
Just regular dessert elotes seem like they’d be a tough sell. Like, would you eat your corn covered in chocolate? Wait… Don’t answer that.
Some people are over the moon with a chance to have a unicorn elote.

It looks great all colorful and pretty and perfect for Instagram, but we really want to know what it tastes like.
Other people are appalled that this is even a thing.

It is being billed as a classic because the unicorn look will undoubtedly be around forever.

There are questions about the poop repercussions eating all this unicorn stuff will create.

“I cannot what you’re going to gain with all the coloring in “wings, elote, sushi, etc” unicorn ?,” wrote @robertotapia14.
But, overall, people are over the fast permeation of the unicorn fad.
