Dunkin’ Donuts Has Weird Sizes

I stopped at Dunkin’ Donuts last week to pick up a few things. Mostly donuts. But coffee as well.

I figured I’d get a small coffee as I usually do at other coffee shops when I realized that a small at DD was 10 ounces. Huh? And then more weirdness: a medium is 14 ounces (!), a large is 20, and an extra large is 24. I don’t really have a problem with the large and extra large but 10 and 14 ounces? What is that about?

For comparison’s sake, Starbucks does it right: a small (short) is 8 ounces. A medium (tall) is 12. A large (venti?) is 16, and an extra large (grande) is 20.

As Ryan pointed out, it’s not technically possible to get a cup (8 ounces) of coffee at Dunkin’ Donuts. That’s thinking outside of the box!

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
