Starbucks introduces Trenta-sized drink

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - Today marks a new era in the Starbucks empire. The International coffee chain has introduced a 31 ounce iced coffee size that tops their Venti size.

The Trenta is a 31 ounce cup filled with iced coffee or tea.

I took it upon myself to visit a the Starbucks located on East Boulevard to find out if the new drink is the new deal.

Some people gawk at the above-average size and wonder if Americans are becoming obsessed with anything that's huge. Some think the beast-like size will save time and repeat trips to the coffee shop.
