If I could think of a fancy schmancy way to say Big Gulp I would….but I can’t. I CAN say that this idea was probably devised by a fellow Texan with a broken air conditioner in the midst of August. Yep.
So, Starbucks is coming out with a new size for their iced coffee and iced tea. Bigger than a venti this is the trenta. 31 ounces of icy cold brain freeze in your favorite caffeinated brew. I think it is brilliant. At this point it is only being test marketed. I hope that they are test marketing it somewhere like the Gobi Desert so that they can really see what a great idea 31 ounces of ice cold, liquid refreshment.
If you get it unsweetened it has less that 10 calories, but what fun is that?
31 ounces. Seriously. 31. Imagine that when I was a kid coke came in 6 ounce bottles. Yeah, and we walked up hill to school both ways, in the snow, in the blistering heat of July…. so what?
What do you think? Is it awesome to be able to get a bladder-buster trenta at Starbucks or is it urinary tract overkill?
And please note: I didn’t say ANYTHING mean about Starbucks.

Maybe they can call it the Bladder-buster?
