They stole their name from the conveinence store Maverik (who came up with that I have no idea). A place I was unfamiliar with before meeting Eric. I was however, familiar with the mug he had that must have held about 2 liters. The thing was huge. And when filled with drinks such as Mountain Dew or Coke, could contain upwards of 1500 calories per refill. Good thing Eric was studying to be a dentist - he didn't need to worry about all the decay he was generating from the soda he was drinking.
So the other day when Eric emailed me this picture from his treck to Wyoming, I have to say I wasn't surprised to see it.
A Maverik mug that holds 100 ounces. 100. That's 28 ounces short of a gallon. A GALLON. Can you even imagine drinking that much soda in one sitting? How many times a day do you think the store employee must have to switch the soda syrup thingy... it must run out after 3 fill ups.
E: Jos, I'm headed to Maverik, do you want anything?
J: Um, sure, just get me a medium diet coke.
J: WTH is this?
E: Your medium diet coke.
J: This is 82 ounces.
E: Yah, well the large is 100.
J: What is the small? 64? A cool 2 liters?
