Starbucks Plenta? A Dietitian’s Nightmare!

Posted Apr 01 2010 12:45pm

Very funny, Starbucks! A 128 fluid ounce Frappaccino — I don’t think so!! The dietitian in me nearly had a heart attack before I realized what day it was… April Fools!

Starbucks Listens to Customer Request for More Sizes

Full article: http://www.starbucks.com/blog/10113/starbucks-listens-to-customer-request-for-more-sizes.aspx

Here’s an excerpt:

Plenta™ (128 fl oz) and Micra™ (2 fl oz) cups arrive in Starbucks stores this Fall. Derived from Italian word for plentiful or small, the Plenta™ delivers coffee lovers record amounts of the world’s finest coffee beverages while the Micra™ delivers a quick and satisfying morsel of goodness.

Recognizing the potential impact the Plenta™ presents for municipal waste collection, Starbucks is also suggesting several subsequent uses for the Plenta™ cup post coffee enjoyment. Suggested usage options include popcorn receptacle, rain hat, perennial planter, lampshade or yoga block. The Micra also serves as a convenient milk dish for kittens, soft boiled egg cup or paper clip holder.

Just for kicks:  A 128 oz Mocha Frappaccino would constitute 2,080 calories and 28 grams of fat… not including whipped cream! :-P
