Give me Trenta or/and give me death!

Yesterday morning(early) I stumbled into my local Starbucks and walked up to an extra cheerful barista and ordered "something big". Literally.

Fortunately, I know the barista fairly well and the rest of the conversation went something like this:

Barista- "Do you want coffee or not?"

Me- "Coffee is good."

Outside of the strange looks from the other Starbucks patrons it was a great experience. I left Starbucks with a tasty Venti beverage(still confused about what I actually got) and a Trenta cup.

I will find out what "CBL" means. 

That's my Venti CBL INSIDE the recently released Trenta size beverage. Wasn't it just a few months ago that we all realized that the Short size was an option at Starbucks? 

If you're still wondering about just how big the new Trenta size is, check this graphic:

Ahh... so if I have a Trenta Iced Passion Tea(which is absolutely fantastic if you haven't had it), it'll fill my stomach to the brim. Fantastic. And what in the world is pop? I should replace that with "Coke".

Next time I go, I'll test the barista and order a Big Gulp Iced Passion Tea with two Splendas. 


  1. Stomach size is irrelevant to me. More concerned with relative bladder size. Mine is definitely on the "tall" (teenyweeny) size. TMI? Just sayin. Who needs that much?! I luv my extra-hot mochas from SB's but jeez louise!

  2. Pam- HA! Guess Starbucks should consider increasing the sizes of their restrooms, eh?

  3. I believe CBL is Carmel Brule Latte, which if i'm right, was a holiday drink this year. I work in a target that has a starbucks and am at least partially trained, though i'm not 100% sure if that's what it was or not.
