The New Starbucks Trenta Cup Is Bigger Than Your Stomach

Illustration for article titled The New Starbucks Trenta Cup Is Bigger Than Your Stomach

To satisfy the unquenchable gullets of America's brand-name coffee drinkers, Starbucks will introduce a 916ml Trenta cup. That's more than the average capacity of the human stomach, and enough caffeine to stand in for a defibrillator.

Of course, it's not much—if any—different from a Big Gulp or any movie theater's large beverage container. But for some reason coffee's just that much more insidious. You'll be able to sample one for yourself when the Trenta rolls out nationwide by May 3rd.

Why does everything have to be supersized? My girlfriend and I went to theater and got a combo pizza and drink, expecting the drink to be well a reasonable size like any fast food place. No this thing was twice as fat, and it took 2 of us the entire movie and another hour to finish it. I felt ridiculousness holding it. Can you imagine what that much coffee in your system would do? Top it off with an energy drink and youd be either dead or running around like Jason Statham in Crank.
