New Starbucks Cup Is Bigger Than Your Stomach

Jan 18, 2011
Megan Bedard is a sucker for sustainable agriculture and a good farmers market, she likes writing about food almost as much as eating it.

If you need a 31-ounce caramel macchiato to kick off your day, you might want to consider sleeping more.

The newly released "Trenta" size at Starbucks is 11 ounces (325 mil) larger than the Venti, the coffee chain's largest cup size before this latest addition.

If that sounds like a gut bomb, you're right. An illustration from National Post shows that the Trenta will max out the capacity of the average tum, pushing it 16 mil beyond its natural state.

The drink debuts in 14 U.S. cities on January 18 and will be available for overconsumption to the masses at all Starbucks locations by May 3.

Let's just hope they're using organic milk?
