Starbucks Gets Even More Pretentious
pre·ten·tious/priˈtenCHəs/Adjective: Attempting to impress by affecting greater importance, talent, culture, etc., than is actually possessed. (Dictionary.com)
So imagine how excited I got today when I found out that Starbucks is coming out with a new cup size that even bigger than Venti. In fact, its going to be 325 ml bigger than the Venti. Which doesn't mean anything to me, I don't trust metric measurements. Its called the Trenta.
Instead of Super-Venti, they had to go uber-douche. But aside from me having to sound like a pompous ass when ordering, the coffee is pretty tasty. And the caffeine content is enough to bring my heart to near explosion.
The Trenta is already promising to deliver. Aside from the caffeine punch that is sure to have me karate chopping through sides of building, the calorie content promises to deliver a whole days dose. Why eat...this drink has it all!
Check out this handy chart from the folks at The National Post:
Normally I don't worry about wimpy things like calories. But some of us didn't spend the past year working off our college beer gut for nothing.
I think I'll stick with Large (I refuse to call it by those ridiculous names for the rest of this post). I don't think I can handle that much caffeine, I'm too young to see my heart literally explode.
