New Starbucks Size Larger Than Average Capacity of Human Stomach

To quote Bill Hicks:

"You want the thirty two ounce or the large?"
"Shit how big is that large?"
"You're gonna want to pull your car round back. I'll start up the pump."

Seriously. Who needs that much coffee. Then again... All night WoW sessions do sound appealing.

I submit Starbucks is looking for ways to legally murder people without it being obvious.

Average Stomach size?

In America, that just means "Happy Meal."

Starbucks: Because a 2 gallon cup screams class.

916mL is less than a quart.

I can barely finish a Grande Frappuccino... there is no way I could finish one of these even if I worked on it all day.

And one of these for a Frappuccino? That must be over the daily amount of calories you should have. Seriously.

*sigh* Yay, one more thing to make fat people even fatter.

I dont have much to say other then.

USA!
USA!!
USA!!!

But really, why do we need something that large

of course an englishmen might drink 15 pints in a night so this is nothing

This is so wrong, yet so right!

Pfffft we English drink tea... get it right ;)

I maybe French but live in England they drink 100 cups tea a day so that's also easy lol

Guess it'd be nice for sharing :3 I want one!

No way Mr. Rocket surgeon. -_-

It's called exaggeration.

Just have to replace "fine" with "ungodly huge" and we're set!

almost a litre of iced cofee. I would be in heaven. Now if only strbucks iced coffee didnt taste like shit. (honestly if thier normal coffee is anything like thie iced, I am suprised they are still open, never mind growing.)

Fixed, just copypasta if you want to.

OT:

Quick, someone send a flier to Dick Cheney!

Hell, not even that'll kill him.

The man is Darth Vader at this point...

EDIT: I say someone should add this to Guilty Pleasures.

DO EET NAO.

That is insane. Who would buy a coffee so big that they can't drink it all? Unless your sharing, it doesn't make sense.

The stomach can hold up to 3 litres (approx.), maybe a bit less, before it starts coming back up again, yeah?
So unless you get 4 of these and drink them within a very short time of each other, this isn't an impossible drink.

Nonetheless, even though it'll cost close to $50, I'm getting one of these in Melbourne ASAP. :D

Death God:

Starbucks didn't get rich by making sense.

Two Starbucks right across the street from each other, anyone?

Death in a cup. Gluttony FTW~

I cant wait to hear Foamy the Squirrel rant about this.....

Wonder how long it takes before someone tries to drink one in under a minute?

If it's cheaper than buying the equivalent amounts of said drink in litres/millilitres then I'd buy it. The lemonande that is, but there are no Starbucks in New Zealand.

Another follower of Foamy! Glad to see it.
And yea, I too immediately thought of Foamy when I saw this thread. :P

Big deal, I live in Washington and we've had the 31oz size for almost a year.

Last time I went to Starbucks I asked for a medium sized regular coffee. Five minutes later I left with something that was very much not what I wanted. My wife likes their smoothies though ... or is that Caribou ... I forget.

Already done.

Me in starbucks: "can I have a coffee with milk, please"
Clerk: "What size would you like"
Me: "err, medium"
Clerk: "Right, Grande Americano"
Me: "huh? I want a medium sized coffee, not a large fancy one!"

How the hell is "Grande" equivalent to Medium?

Why can't they just have "Small, medium, large" and have this "extra large" as a side option like "+30p to go EXTRA Large"

>MFW it's cheaper to buy 1 Extra Large than two small sizes for the same amount of beverage

Elizabeth Grunewald:

Only iced coffee, iced tea, and lemonade will be available in the new size, disallowing anyone from getting 31 ounces of hot coffee at once (which, to my mind, would be the only point in introducing a new size).

...Damnit. No hot White Chocolate Mocha with chocolate powder and no whipped cream for Candi...

I guess I could just get the above cold, but I like my coffee hot.

anyone note you could like 8years ago but 3l cups of coke in the bk lounge

Actually there is a 4th size. It is called a short (8 oz.) No one knows about it though and no one orders it. I work at starbucks and trust me, they are just a waste of paperish plastic

Damn near a liter of whipped cream, cream of the regular kind, sugar, chocolate sauce, and a little dab of coffee?

Someone needs to go all Wilford Brimley on their ass because they're givin' people DIABEETUS.

Looks like the TF2 Sniper can replace his coffee pot now... Jarate, anyone?

It's larger than the average human capacity, but is it larger than the average American stomach?
