Can you drink a 31-ounce JUG of coffee?

Apparently, many people can. Today, Starbucks is rolling out the GINORMOUS cup of coffee in North Carolina and 13 other states.

Although I guess we can hardly call it a cup!

I’m trying to give up my addiction to having just one cup a day. Although admittedly, it’s probably more like 12 ounces than just 8. But I can’t imagine even CARRYING a container so large it fits 31 ounces, let alone DRINKING it! Can you?

Not to mention the cost of that daily cup of coffee. It’s only 50 cents more than the 20-ouncer, but it’s all too expensive for me!
