The perfect serving size of every food item is essential, if we want to make our life journey healthy. An increase or decrease in serving size means the calorie count will also be affected greatly. As the serving size is very important for every food item means, it’s also necessary to keep this in mind while ordering coffee, lemonade, rebel, or any sort of drink.
As the needs of drinks vary at different times, means we consume more if we are thirsty and we consume less if we just want to give a touch to our cravings. Dutch Bros assist their customers in overcoming this problem while providing different cup and glass sizes so that the customer can choose according to their requirements.
Without exaggerating the extra things let’s directly talk about the available cup sizes at Dutch Bros.

Why it is Important to Choose an Exact Cup Size For You?
There are various benefits to choosing an exact size of the cup for you like:
If we use the appropriate size of the cup it means we are controlling our portion, which means we will consume a fine required amount of drink or coffee, it will prevent you from overthinking about your under or over-drinking.
There must be different glass sizes for adults and kids, as a child can not hold a large size cup as an adult can, so the right size of the cup gives you the benefit of easy handling.
An appropriate size of cup is very necessary to maintain the desired temperature of the drink. For instance, if you want a cup that helps your hot drink to retain its temperature for a little longer then prefer a short serving size, on the other side go for the large size for cold drinks, as their large size provides an extra surface for ice.
You are fascinated by this that how could a cup’s size can impact the taste but it really does, as you can consider an example of a wide opening glass filled with wine, this enhances the interaction between oxygen and wine that eventually enhance the aroma and flavor.
The exact size of the cup is also very necessary to make your drink more presentable, such as if your glass is larger but your drink quantity is less, which means the top of the glass remains empty which ultimately leads to bad presentation.
This means a good fit space for a drink is necessary to make it attractive, this thing gives me recall of famous quote which is:

A medium size cup is a great option for those who want a little more drink to enjoy, as it can hold 16 ounces of drink for you. When we talk about 16 ounces means it is only applicable for hot drinks not for cold.

This fact is based on entirely my observation may be your experience might differ.

The large cup size of 24 ounces is used for hot drinks but for cold drinks as for sure more space is required for ice so the cup has a tremendous capacity of up to 32 ounces.

- A large cup is also full of calories and sugar which may cause diabetes.
- When we are taking anything out of need it will be dangerous to our health.
- If we are using a large cup of tea, it is absolutely dangerous to our stomach and causes heartburn.
My Perception: For me, there is a “Big No” for large cup sizes not only for Dutch Bros instead for other restaurants as well. Consumption of this much sugar, carbs, and caffeine cause-disturbance to our body system. This leads to some serious consequences like diabetes, blood pressure, insomnia, anxiety, dehydration, and many others. As you can see all of the consequences are quite dangerous, but if you have a friend with which you can share your drink then a large cup is perfectly fine……. instead a Jackpot.
We normally go with our family, so it doesn’t make sense that we will not take our kids with us. As Dutch Bros provide Kid Section in their menu same as they have special cup sizes for the kids which is designed according to the kid’s perspectives.
Dutch bros offer different healthy drinks for kids which are high in milk, low in sugar and calories, and serve in 8 ounce of cups.
