BOTTOM LINE : The SMALL Cineplex drink is bigger than a LARGE McDonald's drink in Japan !
In fact, a SMALL American Cineplex drink is over TWICE AS LARGE as a SMALL McDonald's drink in Japan.
Keep in mind that, even if you get your drink capped at full capacity, whatever amount of ice they toss in the cup will diminish the real amount of what you ordered.
This post was inspired by my recent trip to the movies in Pennsylvania, where I grabbed a SMALL diet Coke (read: Donald Rumsfeld's Aspartame Cocktail), and a small, un-buttered popcorn to munch on while watching RISE OF THE PLANET OF THE APES.
