Unicorn Frappuccino fans won’t be pleased to hear Anthony Bourdain’s strong opinion of the recent Starbuck’s sugar-bomb beverage.

The celebrity chef shared his opinion during an interview with Town & Country last week by saying:

“Wow, that’s like four things I hate all in one sentence: Starbucks, unicorns, and the colors pink and purple.”

Bourdain then delivered another entertaining drink diss.

Just add pumpkin spice to that mix, and you can nuke the whole county.

And his least favorite food trend?

“The Kobe slider is an indication of a douche economy that’s threatening to me personally. It’s like bottle service at the nightclub; it’s a societal ill. It’s a clear example of nothing being added to the slider experience by using Kobe beef other than the price. No one who orders a Kobe slider wants the unctuous, fatty experience of ordering a Kobe steak. What they want is bragging rights in front of their princes of douchedom around them so they can all high five. It’s part of the “bro” culture I find troubling.”

Spoken in true Bourdain fashion. But isn’t that why we love him?
