Is this necessary?!
On May 3rd, Starbucks will have an additional drink size option - the largest ever, 31-ounce Trenta!
The Trenta, which is 11 ounces larger than the Venti, will be available for iced coffee, iced tea and iced tea lemonade drinks in the US. And it will cost 50 cents more than their previously largest size!
The company claims it was responding to customer demand for larger cold beverages.
The Trenta size will debut in 14 states, including Virginia, Georgia, Florida, Texas, Hawaii and Arizona, on January 18th and in California on Feb. 1st. The rest will come in May.
But Starbucks suggests that just because the size is bigger, doesn't mean that it is bad for you. The chain said unsweetened drinks in Trenta will have fewer than 90 calories, while sweetened versions will have less than 230 calories.
Do U think customers need the larger size?!
