    Link: Starbucks Is Going Bigger For Size Queens - It used to be that the Venti was Starbucks` biggest cup. Now, comes the Trenta. No word on how much it`ll cost though.

    it`s not like the liquid stays in your stomach. Unless you drink it all at once (which will make you throw it back up), most of it will be sent into the intestines over the course of the drink.

    I like how all the sizes except tall are Italian. (Grande = big, Venti = 20 (for 20 ounces) and Trenta = 30 for 30 ounces).

    It makes me feel like the years I took Italian came to some use.

    Too bad being able to translate the cup sizes at Starbucks is the closest I`ll ever get to utilizing my Italian knowledge.

    There`s usually a TON of ice in their iced drinks- There`s probably only about 450ml of actual coffee drink in the Trenta. Don`t get me wrong- that`s still a lot. Not that it matters to me. I pretty much only drink black drip coffee.

    McDonalds! 1/3rd of your daily calories in one drink! Both companies must base their marketing on the fact that people don`t let any two neurons communicate with each other. I think they watched Idiocracy as a "how to" video.

    o.O and the iced drink cups are smaller.

    Either that or they just seem smaller because the ice takes up so much room.

    "I didnt know i could eat up to 4kg of food"

    A milliliter is NOT a gram (unless you`re talking about water). Milliliter is a measure of VOLUME, while a gram is a measure of MASS.

    @JoeYC admit it, you`re wrong here. btw, the American (or North American, if you prefer) style of writing states that should be outside the . So Rick S is correct on that too.

    At last, MauserTM is not `totally` incorrect, 4Kg can be 4L, if we are talking about water.

    So, take it easy, and watch your own bellybutton before act like a Jerk.

    It`s only ice coffee. The ice takes up a ton of volume, so unless you let it melt and drink the water you`re not really getting 30 ounces.
