Owners of Brooklyn coffee shop The End have filed a lawsuit against Starbucks, claiming that the company’s famous new unicorn frappuccino was a copy of one of their very own drinks, the unicorn latte. The End started selling their Unicorn Latte all the way back in December 2016, way before Starbuck’s viral version arrived.
According to the gossip site, The End’s lawsuit claims that the drinks are unusually similar. Both are pink and blue, and both are served without any actual coffee. The End filed to patent the name “unicorn latte” in January 2017.
