Extra! Extra!

No really, extra coffee…yep, you read me right.  Today, Starbucks is debuting their new drink size, Trenta.  Trenta will be a 31oz behemoth of a drink that will only be available for iced coffee, iced tea and iced tea lemonade (at least for now).

On January 18th Trenta will only be available in 14 states including Georgia (WOO HOO!).  On February 1st more states will be added and this serving size will be available in all states by May 3rd, 2011.

Tall, shmall….Grande, shmande….Venti, shmenti.  I have to say I’m pretty excited.  This summer is going to be all about the Trenta; they are serving a larger size (great for road trips, the beach, yoga-thons?) at a price that doesn’t break the budget (just tack 50 cents on to your favorite Venti iced coffee or tea).  From a marketing perspective this allows Starbucks to compete with gas station super-sized drinks and fast food restaurants.  From a coffee addict’s perspective, this is the Holy Grail .  You can get all of that Pike Place for just two dollars and some change…who cares if it’s bigger than my stomach (you think I’m kidding? Just check out this fun graphic from Gizmodo, http://gizmodo.com/5735822/the-new-starbucks-trenta-cup-is-bigger-than-your-stomach). So go get your drink on!
