Why do some places have medium, large, and Extra large drinks?

and they have no small?

What do they think I am, an idiot?
How can you have a medium without a small? Isn't that what a medium is??Something between a small and a large???

Makes me crazy.



  1. A couple of years ago Pizza Hut made a similar shift. I recall being miffed by this, because it meant that when I ordered a "large", I was getting what used to be a "medium". And the "medium" was actually the former "small" (or personal sized). This must be some kind of marketing gimmick, but I don't get it.

  2. did the prices shift to? Did the price of a medium stay the same when the cups got smaller? I would guess that is there trick. Charge the same price for less. Evil Boomer run corporations.


I'm moderating all the comments these days.
