That is hilarious . The "Trenta"  - It seems like a gag, really.
The illustration of the human stomach just makes it all that much 
more appealing

Maybe a gag but don't think so. Search "Starbucks Trenta" and you'll get
endless hits with articles by every major (and minor) news source. Seems
being test marketed in 10 States. If it IS a hoax, it's a brilliant free
advertising hoax for the Charbucks name. And if it is a hoax, highly likely
perpetuated on the down low by the Mermaid herself. The one link I couldn't
find was an official announcement from the Mermaid. Doesn't mean it isn't
there, just didn't find it scanning 22 pages of Google hits before I gave
up....and found nothing on Starbucks.com news release section going back 3
years....

I actually went on the St**b***s website and found a Trenta that is 31oz.
under the nutritional facts, but I only see it listed under the iced coffee
section and Tazo Tea:
  Iced Coffee with Milk
230 calories
_OUCH! That would be like a meal in its self.
The officials have reported that the new cup will be 31 ounces and it cost
only 50 cents more than the usual 20 ounce Venti size.
In their official statement, St**b***s has stated that the Trenta cups will
be available at 14 states. Moreover, these super sized cups would be
available only for cold drinks and for iced coffee. The coffee giant has
already began selling the Trenta cups in the Southwestern and Southern U. S.
states and in California, Trenta will be available on February 1. The cups
will be offered at nationwide shops of St**b***s Corporation from May 3. The
spokesperson of the company said that St**b***s Corporation is offering
bigger sized cup owing to the customer demands. The company made the
possible groundwork before launching these bigger sized cups.
Anyway, it does look like this official and that they have already released
the Trenta 31oz size...
But, I'm going to stick with my home roasted, ground, brewed SM coffee!

14) From: Sandy Andina
Yeesh--who the heck would want to choke down a quart of cold coffee or iced tea at a time? (Then again, I suppose anything's possible). I guess they had to call it Trenta because "Big Gulp" was already trademarked. Maybe this falls under the "t.m.i." category, but perhaps it ought to be sold with a discreetly hideable collapsible empty cup for the aftermath.

They will, most likely, fill it w/milk or cream, and lots of sugar, I'm
sure. Ugh. The diagram hurt my stomach!
Makes me think of that animated film - forgot the name - was set in the
future, and no one walked anymore. Everyone was obese & drove around in
scooters, not even thinking for themselves.
Almost scary, isn't it?

Just for a good idea, I checked my gallon of milk in the fridge, divided it
by this
new *$'s drink - the volume is about 1/4 of a gallon.
Hope they put in extra bathrooms. Just sayin'....
