Over the Unicorn Frappuccino Already? Try the Liger Shake

If you’ve already had so many Starbucks Unicorn Frappuccinos that your insides are turning pink and you’re sprouting a swirly, pointy horn from your forehead, Arby’s has a new beverage based on a different magical creature for you: the Liger Shake.

(Okay, so there are real-life ligers out there, but based on the Arby’s description of the beverage, we’re going to go ahead and assume the fast-food chain is referencing a Napoleon Dynamite-style liger. You know, one that’s bred for its skills in magic.)

Where the Unicorn Frap tastes of Sour Patch Kids, the Liger Shake is made with orange cream and Ghirardelli chocolate.

And damn, do the shakes look delicious.

Who knows, maybe the Liger Shake will, like the Unicorn Frap before it, inspire liger pizza and liger noodles.

Your move, every other food establishment in the world, and there are only so many mythical animal combinations left—my money is on a pegasus bubble tea next, followed by a minotaur mocha.
