My Life Is Now Complete – I’ve Had A Trenta At Starbucks

Like a school girl – that’s how I squealed when I ordered the Starbucks Trenta for the first time. Let me explain…

When I went into the Starbucks, I ordered my usual – a venti black tea lemonade unsweetened – and then joked with the guy behind the counter asking if the trenta arrived. In NY, it’s not due until May but I always ask anyway — like a drug addict.  It was a shot in the dark and I was expecting to hear they didn’t have it. BUT THEY DID.

I think I started to cry right there on line.

I ordered it and my pupils dilated. THEN the guy told me that I got a free petite dessert because this weekend Starbucks is offering it with every drink purchase and I think I started to convulse. It was just too much good news for one girl to handle.

I swear everyone in that store was looking at me like I was insane. Maybe I am… but I couldn’t help it. There are FEW things in the world that excite me like this and I just went with the feeling.

And yes, I started to take pictures of the Starbucks Trenta in the store. COMICAL. Whatever – I’m never going to see those people again, so what’s the difference.

I threw the cup away – should have saved it and made a potted plant out of it. You always remember your first… 🙂

  1. haha, you’re so cute! I think I’d need a toilet break while drinking this thing, don’t thinkg the whole thing fits in my stomach LOL are you still cutting back on Starbucks iced tea? You recently said you found a tea you can make at home that is cheaper and equally delish’?

  2. OMG, WANT.

    I don’t think they’re getting the trenta size here 🙁 Those cake pop things are out here but I haven’t heard a whisper about a larger size.

  3. Wow, I can tell how out of the loop I am…I had no idea what you were talking about. I thought it was a new drink. LOL!!

  4. And you are not concerned about the amount of plasic you produce, when you drink this kind of thing?
