New Trenta size at Starbucks

Ali de Bold

I always marvel at people who can drink a Venti of anything at Starbucks and now apparently they are launching an even bigger size.  Trenta is 31oz - think 5 cups of coffee worth.  Would you get your favourite drink in that size? If so, what kind?

Is This A Joke?

Wow! I agree Ali, a venti is pretty big as it is. But I could see trying one of these Trenta's at the beginning of a late night of studying.

I am GUILTY of getting Venti of Salty Caramel Signature Hot Chocolate (with Soy) ! That's my favorite... I would probably get it in a Trenta...but I may have to skip dinner... that is a lot of hot chocolate.. haha

Yes and no

I could certainly down a Trenta - but it would be cold by the time I finished. I'm a slow sipper/enjoyer, and with a Venti it's always unappetizingly lukewarm by the time I get to the last third or so.

However, I cannot justify buying 2 Talls back to back because the cost is so much higher! I generally take the middle road and force myself to be content with a Grande (because it's over too quickly).

As for my faves, I love a Chai Latte or Hazelnut Latte best.

Venti lover :)

I always get a Venti Skinny Chai Latte! If I see this Trenta - Im all over it! I too am slow to drink, but I dont mind the colder bottom bit - it always has the strongest spice flavour so that's 'hot' enough for me!

A meal in itself

Thought I'd share this with you gals.

Looks like the Trenta's contents exceeds the average capacity of an adult human stomach by about 16mL. I'm kind of worried about where this is all headed. How much of something do we really need?

Seems like everything but my bank account is getting super-sized.

Where did you find that Mary? That's too funny! I guess whomever orders it is guaranteed to need a washroom close by :)

This elaborate diagram is making me seriously reconsider wanting a Trenta ...or even a venti.. ahh

Ali, I got it from the National Post.

@dolce_bellissima, I used to order Venti sized drinks a lot, but I could never finish them so it was just such a waste of money. I'm sticking to my Tall or Grande Skinny Vanilla Latte.

This WILD! Now I want to have one just cause. Can you imagine how wired you would be if you had that much coffee before 9:00?

oh geez

I have the world's smallest bladder so I could never drink a trenta! Well, unless I was in the mood to spend all night running to the washroom!
