Food News: 31-ounce “Trenta” Size Coming to Starbucks

from Reuters:

Starbucks Corp will roll out its biggest drink size yet — the 31-ounce “Trenta” — in all of its U.S. coffee shops by May 3, the company said on Sunday

The new size will be available only for iced coffee, iced tea and iced tea lemonade drinks in the United States. The Trenta is 7 ounces larger than Starbucks’ “Venti” cup for iced drinks, which currently is its largest size on offer.

    That sounds genuinely dangerous. (It’s probably just dangerously expensive, though.)

    Not really Maxchain – as it is only for iced drip coffee, tea and tea with lemonade – which are their cheapest drinks.

    I drink a medium brew tea and it is under two bucks [when I actually go] – so I can’t imagine a few more ounces is going to approach the 5 bucks for a latte or frap.

    The fine print shows it.

    Hey, Guys! Oh, Big Gulps, huh? Alright! Welp, see ya later!

    I don’t get it…I work at Panera and the only difference between our sizes is how much milk we add. There’s only one double shot regardless of size, and I imagine Starbucks is the same way. It makes me want to laugh when people say, “Oh, boy, I need a lot of caffeine..better make it a large!” Do people not get that they will actually get caffeinated faster if they get the smallest size? If it’s about enjoying a longer hot chocolate or latte experience, a larger size makes sense. But I’m willing to bet people will buy this drink thinking it’s more potent than the smaller sizes…

    To me it just seems like another way to get extra calories

    I wish they would offer it with regular coffee, on long drives the venti isn’t enough.

    Great! Now I can stay up the FULL 24 hours! Liquid speed in a cup!

    Sorry to go off topic here, but did I miss a posting, as I’ve heard Grub Grade mentioned on a commercial over the past few days. I forgot which one though.
