Trenta: Just DON’T Do It

Is anyone else disgusted by this?

Starbucks’ New ‘Trenta’ Cup: The Unhealthy Details

Starbucks is coming out with a new cup size! Now you can drink your liquid crack (most of the time LOADED with ungodly amounts of sugar) in mass quantities without refilling your cup.

The Trenta holds a whopping 31 ounces, or nearly a quart of liquid (uh, or my Sigg bottle)… I’m sorry, when did this become acceptable? The only reason anyone should order this is to feel a small family starving from lack of caffeine.

My rant is done for the day.

Thoughts anyone?

*Updated 1/21: Wonderful blogger, Zoe, filled me in on the real story of the Trenta. This large container will only be sold with iced coffee or teas, not supersized triple-shot pumpkin spiced cinnamon dulce peppermint whatever. 😉 (sounds kinda good, right? right?) So, I guess that’s better…sort of… and this way you won’t have to worry about your coffee getting cold before you finish it. And lastly, that size probably don’t even contain a fraction of the calories it could. Sorry Starbucks! My mistake. Just don’t make me have to repeat this post when you want to fill this monster with milky beverages.

Thanks, Zoe!

  1. no worries, lori! we’re only allowed to use the trenta for iced coffee and iced teas. it doesn’t even ring up if we try to ring up a frappacinno! still, i don’t think anyone needs that much of any drink outside of water. at work (yes, i work at starbucks…) we joke we’re turning into 7-11. but no, no trenta frappacinos or white mochas will be made.

  2. ugh sbux – just didn’t have the same appeal as it used to have – even the coffee tastes different – and instant coffee is still instant coffee. illy’s all the way (espresso and coffee).

  3. dang. that is ginormous. while i drink that much before noon, i can’t see spending the money for a trenta when no doubt it would get cold before i could finish it all anyway.
    seems kinda silly to me.

  4. I didnt believe it when I heard it!! That’s insane!!
    I worked at Sbux when I was younger and I saw the ingredients in everything…hello HFCS!!!

    I would only order the trenta for my tea..but yet again I have my own mug so probably not!

  5. Gosh that’s crazy! Thanks for keeping me in touch with that insane outside world… My husband probably drinks that much coffee, but I wish he didn’t. And I can’t even drink a cup: it knocks my adrenals out instantly. So what’s going on with everyone else’s adrenals knocking that stuff back?

    Ok–didn’t mean to butt in on your rant…

  6. I just heard about this the other day and I’m totally against it. Nobody needs that much beverage. Is Starbucks trying to compete with 7/11’s Big Gulp?

  7. Iyiyi.. I think I would probably go into a-fib or something! LOL. I can drink 1 cup of coffee (and not strong coffee) a day.. more and I get shaky!
