A Need For a New-Sized Drink: A Nevin Barich Blog Experience

What is the deal with medium and large drinks?

The following is an issue that I know many of us have dealt with:

So at the movies not too long ago, I got a medium diet drink.

Now, the reason why I got a medium drink is because whenever I get the large drink at the movies, I don't come close to finishing it.

That said, 2/3 of the way through the movie, I finished my drink.

That means I spent the last third of the movie drinkless.

So let's review:

If I get a large movie theater soda, I can't finish it.

But if I get a medium, I run out well before the movie ends.

What the &%$@%?

So after coming home from the movies, this stupid quandry of the drink industry made me stay up half the night figuring out how we as a society can fix this problem.

Finally, about 4:30 a.m., I found the answer:

The largium.

Bigger than a medium. Smaller than a large.

The largium.

Adding another choice for American's drinking public.

And don't worry, Starbucks addicts, for I've already figured out an alternative name for "largium" when going to Starbucks:

The graventi.

Larger than a grande, smaller than a venti.
