Okay size queens, Starbucks has seven ounces of good news for you: On February 1st, Californians can order up a new even-bigger drink size at the ubiquitous coffee chain, according to KTLA. The "Trenta," named for the Italian word for "thirty," is a 31 ounce-r, up seven ounces from their "Venti," and only available for a select few beverages: iced coffee, iced tea and lemonade drinks.

The new plus-sized offering will debut in 14 other states tomorrow, but Californians will get to drink bigger next month; the "Trenta" will be nationwide by May 3. Going bigger will cost you 50 more cents, and a few more calories. "Starbucks says unsweetened drinks in the new size will have fewer than 90 calories and sweetened versions will have less than 230 calories." Still, better also plan on chugging 31 ounces of water to balance out all that extra caffeine.
