Your Morning Jolt Just Got Bigger

If the 24-oz "Venti" wasn't enough to get your caffeine fix each morning, you now have a new option. Starbucks just rolled out its 31-oz "Trenta" cup for its cold beverages.

The new drink size already is available in Alabama, Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Louisiana, Mississippi, New Mexico, Nevada, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Texas and Virginia. It rolls out in California today, and the nationwide rollout should be complete by May 3.

At 31 ounces, the Trenta is 916ml of fluid. The average human stomach has a capacity of 900ml. Do we really need this much caffeine (or sugar) added to our daily diet? With our waistlines growing and our lifestyles becoming more sedentary, is Starbucks' addition of the Trenta in the interest of public health or their bottom line?
