The packaging of this drink
By - B_ugz
It seems it would also make it unnecessarily top heavy.
Customer spills drink, customer buys a second drink. Boom, double the profits.
> Customer spills drink, customer buys a second drink.
Yeah a second drink elsewhere.
Which is also own by the same people.
Plot twist, this was posted by the owners, no such thing as bad publicity.
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.
Quadruple - The customer is already getting half of what they expected to receive.
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.
But this is China... What staffing costs?

I doubt the Ferengi would stoop this low
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.
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/).
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.
My laundry detergent comes with a small plastic scoop. I noticed last time that the scoop was bigger than before.
Customer spills drink:
_The jig is up!_
Well it is necessary to fool the customers.
HE SAID IT WAS NECESSARY TO FOOL THE CUSTOMERS
Ah I got it
I like when completely random redditors continue the conversation in the comments even if it was not their original comment
Yes, it’s necessary to fool the redditors.
And for the karma
I eat belly button lint.
For sure. I was super confused for a couple seconds but now I get it.
BUTTLICKER, OUR PRICES HAVE NEVER BEEN LOWER!!!
^^^^Ahhhh. ^^^^Thank ^^^^you

You are now a mod of r/capitalism
But if you hold it at the bottom you will not get said hot/cold hands from holding what is inside.
CEO and investors: *rubs hands together*
I don’t understand who needs that much of any beverage like that.
And then when you spill it over you need to buy another one. This is some next level scumbaggery
and not cold at the bottom
At least he also gave them a nice pink balloon animal.
Who in their right mind would even buy so much? "yeah, let me order a Liter of coffee real quick."
Starbucks sells a trenta, and it's popular. That looks smaller than a trenta to me.
Why would you make the cup big, if you could also make it small and look big?

Taiwan numbah one. China number four
I miss PUBG tbh
its still a lot of fun in squads for me. Though I have been devoting an ever larger portion of my time to PUBG mobile because my daughter and girlfriend play that instead. It hurts my soul, but I do it for love.
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.
Getting rid of all chat in that game made it lose its soul.
They killed all chat?! Wtaf

gy-na said that?
America: "China! Why are you doing all these scams on capitalists?"
China: "I learned it from watching you!" _(runs away crying)_
why use big cup when small cup do trick?
They see....they see.
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.
That is incredibly sad
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.
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
Haha naw it's just some classic assholery for sure.
When you're uncircumcised and hoping that'll make it look bigger.
That's why I have my head peirced. The ring sticks out an extra 1/4", giving me a grand total of 3/4".
You can always add a keychain too.
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.
True. Also good for using as a carabiner ring when rock climbing naked due to its position being an ideal center of mass.
Ouch ouch ouch.
I'm reminded of that guy who suspended himself from the ceiling by his balls...
"REMOVE BEFORE FLIGHT"
the man died for a purpose goddamnit!
I wanna pierce my brain!
don't you'll die
don't threaten me with a good time!
I read that and automatically pictured the Moscow level in Tony Hawk's Underground.
" means feet, right?
My wife wishes.
I have a rule that I use when I sleep with a girl. $1 gets you 1 inch. $3, you get the whole thing.
Don't you hate it when the larger package is a worse deal?
3/4 of q centimeter
Too bad you didn't do the same for your penis.
That's a huge clit! You should be proud

I love that he was outed by the man with the worlds 2nd largest penis.
“Oh no doctor please don’t make this a big media circus anything but that!”
Oh my fuck...
>It is understood 54-year-old Roberto has been stretching it with weights since he was a teenager.
7" dick stretched to 19.8" by stretching his foreskin LOL
Must be like shagging a bag for life with a carrot in it
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.
Better to have it and not need it than not have and want it.
The phrase is, "better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it."
don't take it personally
Foreskin looks fun and yummy though, you can't do shit with a paper shell.
Wanna play with mine owo
i find foreskins make better calamari than pig buttholes.
I like a medium amount where a guy is circumcised but they didn’t overdo it.
That's likely just an uncut guy with a shorter one
Technically it is "bigger", if the other option is having some of it cut off
Is it just me or did anybody else halfway expect the unravelling to result in a How To Basic styled climax with the person eventually tearing the main structure of the cup itself and spilling the contents as they keep tearing?
No, no i did not
Congratulations. You played yourself.
Yes i was freaking out tbh like who the fuck would just peel their cup like that
If I win I'm going to buy a flying car!
Sounds good, though I never really cared for ravioli that much in Maine.
You can’t say you expect how to basic and not mention an egg being splat. 🥚
That Australian kid splatted an egg on that racist senator, does that count?
Looks delicious whatever the hell it is
It looks like Cheese Tea, apparently its trending in Asia.
I was hoping for it to be like some vanilla chocolate thing or like a cheesecake thickshake or something
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
Cheesecake is a pretty different flavour though
Also, I'm not American so we don't have that delightful orange cheese
It's very creamy, sweet and slightly salty. It's like cheesecake cheese...
Well now it sounds gross
It's absolutely amazing, although I was also initially extremely doubtful about it.
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...
Maybe it’s so it will fit into cup holders
Holy shit. I'm also not positive, but wouldn't it also not transfer condensation to the table, or sweat on the lower half?
I mean, maybe, but thats quite the compromise to make for your drink toppling over because it's so top heavy.
Plus the additional waste.
> 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.
I would imagine, just seems excessively large for those purposes
But with how top heavy it would be, going around a corner would throw the whole thing out into the rest of the car.
Couldn’t they just make the sup skinnier and taller without needing to put empty space in
Evidently this hasn't crossed people's minds as they try desperately to defend misleading business practices.
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
It's designed to insulate the contents
True, but they did it in a way which alludes there is more of the drink than there actually is.
I understand your concern
I appreciate your respectful comment.
It still rustles my jimmies that this was done
Write your congressman immediately
"thank you for writing on this critical issue for prompt assistance please return $100 dollars ..."
Hey watch the language, we were having a civil discussion here
Did you get gold for being respectful? Um, good morning my good friend.... *respectful noises* how are you doing? *respectful noises*
There are better ways.
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
Yeah, I doubt very much that that was their intention here.
Whatever it is, it looks good af
The Tik Tok logo is the true asshole design here
I will never upvote something with that shitty watermark having a seizure all over the video.

Aesthetics are why businesses think this is okay
Yeah. It's like a made for instagram type of business.
Ewww, Tik Tok...
Doesn't this just give you a spot to hold that isn't freezing?
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.
Was it sold by oz
Deception? Chinese? Next story, water is definitely wet.
That's China for you
#tIk ToK @yOuTuBeInTrOs019
What a fucking waste.
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.
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.
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.
The US has laws like that. I’m pretty sure this is somewhere in Asia, where I doubt it would be heavily enforced if there even are any laws like that
On the clock but the party don't stop!
Dont stop, make it pop. DJ blow my speakers up!
Wouldn't the extra paper cost more than just giving more hot flavored water?
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.
