Not Biggie, but bigger at Wendy's

Wendy's is doing away with the 'Biggie' drink size and returning to the terms everybody else uses: small, medium and large.

The difference is, though, that Wendy's us increasing the size of all their drinks. What was medium is now a small, etc. So now, small is a 20 ounce drink, medium is 32 ounces and a new 42 ounce size is a called a large. I'll say! 42 ounces is 1.2 liters (or 5 1/4 cups... a third of gallon). Wendy's will still sell a 16 ounce drink on its 99 cent value menu.

But I guess giant drink sizes don't have to matter.... if you order a diet soda!

And FYI, at Wendy's you can substitute a bottle of Dasani water for a soft drink (and you can substitute items such as a side salad, chili or yogurt and granola for french fries, regardless of the combo size).

Think I accidentally posted this is response to the wrong article, originally. So here it goes again: Diet soda IS actually a big deal. The ones that contain aspartame, especially. I suggest people do their own research on aspartame and educate themselves on it's adverse effects. There are plenty of websites with the info you need to know. is a good one to start with. I used to assume diet soda was fine since it had no calories. It's actually way worse. It was the cause behind my MS like symptoms (mild to extreme limb numbness, could not keep balance, would fall over walking)and the majority of my migraines. I used to drink up to 5 diet cokes a day. Not anymore! Telling others not to worry about soda being larger in size if it is diet is just plain wrong! Please people, do you own research and decide what you feel is right. The info is out there! You just have to look...
