See that Starbucks cup right there?

Currently it is holding every last drop of Cabernet Sauvignon from the adjacent bottle. Someone tested it and the new Trenta size cup at the Bucks holds a lot more liquid than one human should be consuming of anything in one sitting.

So we guess Trenta roughly translated means Big Gulp, yes?

7-Eleven Reduces Size Of Big Gulp Without Telling Anyone

Some people have weird obsessions — Paul Sunby’s is drinking Super Big Gulps and somehow noticing when 7-Eleven decreases its size by four ounces without changing the price.

Paul says he noticed the change when 7-Eleven temporarily stopped selling Super Big Gulps and then reintroduced them with a new cup that contained no size info on the label.

"They still say Super Big Gulp, but they no longer had the 44-ounce size printed on them,
making people think they're the same thing," said Paul.

He continued:

“The first time, unofficially, I just took the new cup and filled it with water up to the top, and poured it into a legitimate 44-ounce cup from Exxon Tigermarket, and noticed that it didn't fill it up all the way," Paul said. "It was a quarter-cup short. So then I actually filled it back up and poured it into a measuring cup to get the full measurement, and determined it is a 40-ounce cup."

While we find this guy’s enthusiasm endearing, even 40 ounces of a sugary drink is terrible for you and a diet killer.

Stick to water! If you need a caffeine boost, try tea! Sodas, even diet sodas, are not good for you, so steer clear!
