COLUMBIA (WACH) -- Starbucks announced this week that they're adding a larger size to their drink menu - the 31-ounce "Trenta".
The new size is eleven ounces larger than the Venti, which was the largest size the coffee chain had to offer, until now.
The larger size is only available for iced coffee, iced tea and iced tea lemonade drinks. The world's biggest coffee chain said unsweetened drinks in the new size will have fewer than 90 calories and that sweetened versions will have less than 230 calories.
The coffee shops will have the new size available nationwide by May 3, but it will debut in 14 states, starting February 18.
We called the Starbucks in Five Points to see if they had the drink available.
A store employee tells WACH Fox News the store is currently offering the bigger size to customers who request it. Despite the lack of advertising plenty of customers are still coming in to buy the drink, according to an employee. We also called Starbucks in the Vista and got no answer.
Starbucks says drinks in the Trenta size will cost 50 cents more than similar Venti-sized iced drinks.
