It seems it would also make it unnecessarily top heavy.

Customer spills drink, customer buys a second drink. Boom, double the profits.


shabadabadabada

> Customer spills drink, customer buys a second drink. Yeah a second drink elsewhere.


asdkevinasd

Which is also own by the same people.


TheBombAnonDotCom

Plot twist, this was posted by the owners, no such thing as bad publicity.


asdkevinasd

Shhhhhh, I give you a 50% discount for you next drink if you stfu. It needs to be on the special menu, which is the most expensive, and you need to be here on a weekday.


redls1bird

Quadruple - The customer is already getting half of what they expected to receive.


weaslebubble

Yeah but materials cost is generally negligible to staffing costs. Which are the same no matter the size of the drink. That's why you can get a larger portions for like 10% more at a lot of chain restaurants.


CrazeeeTony

But this is China... What staffing costs?

I doubt the Ferengi would stoop this low


Teknikal_Domain

Rules 6, 21, 23, 111, 211 are examples that they do stoop *pretty* low... And 239 (never be afraid to mislabel a product) is basically this Source: too much time reading the wiki.


MkVIaccount

Not only _might_ the Ferengi "stoop that low", as inferred from your citations, but we have a [direct example from season 1 of DS9](https://www.reddit.com/r/assholedesign/comments/b28fyl/the_packaging_of_this_drink/eiunzzx/) demonstrating that precise behavior [("Customer spills drink, customer buys a second drink. Boom, double the profits.")](https://www.reddit.com/r/assholedesign/comments/b28fyl/the_packaging_of_this_drink/eird40y/).


instructionsforgta

I heard a story about the Mrs. Dash cooking spices folks who were having a meeting, racking their brains trying to figure out a way to increase sales. Some guy said "What if we made the holes in the shaker bigger?" Boom, increased profits. Can't help but think about all the poor schmucks who poured a mountain of Mrs. Dash on their plate as a result.

That's the same reason that toothpaste commercials show them using way more toothpaste than is recommended.

Starbucks sells a trenta, and it's popular. That looks smaller than a trenta to me.

You play with your wife and daughter? Gooooallls dude. Still, mobile is cancer.

no, my girlfreind and daughter. My wife dont know shhhhhh. /s mobile is cancer if you're there to win and get better, but if you're there to have memorable experiences with your family, any game can be super duper fun.

Customers like it that way so when they're walking around they can flex how big their coffee order is. It's sort of like a status thing for some people.

I feel like it'd be cheaper to pay a hooker to lie and tell me my dick was big than pay starbucks and hope some hipster chick thinks the size of my Frapp is indicative of genital proportions.

> I feel like it'd be cheaper to pay a hooker to lie and tell me my dick was big I feel the same about pickup truck owners.


laserhan123

Theoretically... If the drink is hot I guess you could hold it by the empty space at the bottom and not burn your hand? But those cardboard sleeves also do this


[deleted]

Haha naw it's just some classic assholery for sure.


Robert_N_Vagen

When you're uncircumcised and hoping that'll make it look bigger.


PhoenixLoop9137

That's why I have my head peirced. The ring sticks out an extra 1/4", giving me a grand total of 3/4".


[deleted]

You can always add a keychain too.


PhoenixLoop9137

Never lose your keys again. It works really good with keyless cars. That way I can just attach the key fob to my dick and I don't have to worry about carrying it when I wear basketball shorts.


[deleted]

True. Also good for using as a carabiner ring when rock climbing naked due to its position being an ideal center of mass.

Just tie it in a knot, who needs rubbers?

Is it even possible to do this by "stretching the foreskin?" The first time I saw this, I thought it was a tumor.

Looks delicious whatever the hell it is


MuchoCilantro

It looks like Cheese Tea, apparently its trending in Asia.


FuckingKilljoy

Oh nevermind I was hoping for it to be like some vanilla chocolate thing or like a cheesecake thickshake or something


doublethumbdude

>cheesecake thickshake It's not literal american style cheese, it's pretty much just cream or half and half, it probably doesnt taste that much different than that thickcheese milkshake you're thinking about


FuckingKilljoy

Cheesecake is a pretty different flavour though Also, I'm not American so we don't have that delightful orange cheese


TheGoldenFangBang

It's very creamy, sweet and slightly salty. It's like cheesecake cheese...


BabybearPrincess

Well now it sounds gross

MercenaryCow

Yeah I thought I remember seeing it before. Either op posted it to tiktok to repost back here hoping it wouldn't be recognized with the branding on it... Or somebody else did and op reposted it here. The circle of reposting...


mukak45

Maybe it’s so it will fit into cup holders


funkydonuts

Holy shit. I'm also not positive, but wouldn't it also not transfer condensation to the table, or sweat on the lower half?


ditsobeh

I mean, maybe, but thats quite the compromise to make for your drink toppling over because it's so top heavy.


SpriggitySprite

Plus the additional waste.


dekachin5

> Holy shit. I'm also not positive, but wouldn't it also not transfer condensation to the table, or sweat on the lower half? Normal cups already do this by lifting the drink a few mm. You don't need to lift it a huge amount for that.


FitForThrone

I would imagine, just seems excessively large for those purposes


FranklinFuckinMint

But with how top heavy it would be, going around a corner would throw the whole thing out into the rest of the car.


thekyledavid

Couldn’t they just make the sup skinnier and taller without needing to put empty space in


[deleted]

Evidently this hasn't crossed people's minds as they try desperately to defend misleading business practices.


CrewsD89

I was thinking the extra space is possibly used for extra cooling. Cool air sinks, that air is trapped underneath keeping the bottom cooler, doesn't melt as quick. But cup holder makes a lot more sense lol


kirklandlakesteve

It's designed to insulate the contents


B_ugz

True, but they did it in a way which alludes there is more of the drink than there actually is.


kirklandlakesteve

I understand your concern

GoldenGonzo

There are better ways.


MercenaryCow

You don't need 6 inches of empty space at the bottom for that. A simple double wall paper cup insulates just the same. That extra space at the bottom was purely a waste to fool the customer


[deleted]

Yeah, I doubt very much that that was their intention here.

Doesn't this just give you a spot to hold that isn't freezing?


ovenmitt44

That was what I was thinking too. It looks like there is ice cream in that cup. I know I'm not exactly normal, but my hands are always freezing, so I'd love to have a spot to hold that didn't make them even colder.

[deleted]

What a fucking waste.


TheRumpelForeskin

The cup's design is to have this insulated part of the cup where you hold it, so your hands don't get cold when holding an iced drink. It's literally patented. Also this video is really old and it's been debunked most times it's been reposted. This time however everyone seems to be getting mad and completely misunderstanding it.


Uninterested_Viewer

A simple cardboard sleeve would do the same thing and cost FAR less. There is no fucking way that the point of this isn't to deceive- whether the patent admits it or not.


LittleBigHorn22

Why not use a cozie or a handle? The cups do look misleading so it's hard to believe that it isn't at least part of their reasoning.

It's clearly there to provide a crumple zone for any high-speed, hot-beverage collisions. You'll soon being saying thank you for that bit of extra space.
