      Not to worry for you see, the ‘single slice of pizza’ you mention is actually a Mega Slice, which is probably at least 3 times bigger than a regular slice.

        I can see the angle and that’s only like 2 times the size of a normal slice and it also looks pretty short compared to the cup and I know american cups are huge but that’s in height not width so comparing it to that that slice looks maybe slightly above average to me nowhere near $4 worth also I just noticed it’s only a medium fizz so it can probably be compared to a large here yeah that pizzas nowhere near as big as you say

            I guess that’s better then but it’s still pretty pricy pizza here is £25 for a large dominos but there’s always some offer for half off so the real price is like £12.50 and that’s ten slices so that’s £3.75 for 3 slices which sort of lines up with that being $4.65 but at the same time our pizzas supposed to be way more expensive than in the US cause your large is apparently $10 and our real price of £12.50 is $15 so I’dve expected it to be like $2.50 then if it’s the size of 3 slices and I don’t know about if it still does in the US but dominos used to do free delivery so considering you’re at the place to buy it and they don’t have to deliver it to you maybe even knock that down to $2 which sort of brings it back to my original gut feeling of what it should cost of $1.50/$2.00 at the upper side but still

              Dominos here hasn’t ever done free delivery AFAIK.

              A $12 pizza delivered is gonna be like $20 after tip and tax

              You can buy the whole pizza in 12 slices for $17 USD, but the slices are smaller, the mega slice in question is legitimately almost a quarter of the pizza, and is priced as an impulse item. I had no problem going by Casey’s on my way into work, buying this plus an extra slice for like 9 dollars and basically eating a half a pizza and getting enough soda for half the day. It isn’t a bad deal actually, and I had QUITE the appetite.

          Most all American cups are small enough at the bottom to fit in near universally sized drink holders in a car. The bigger ones get bigger on top. My guess is that’s about 28 to 32 oz medium. About the size cup to wander around a job site with till ya all hit the Chinese buffet at lunch…😝

            oh always wondered why they had that skinny bottom in the us figured it was just sealed off at the bottom like sticking a superfluous bit to the bottom to make it look bigger without giving you more fizz I know you guys revolve around cars but god damn

            Fast food cups pretty much universally come in 32 oz (8, 12, 16, 24, 32, 48), having worked places that sold styrofoam 32 oz cups for decades, I’m extremely confident that’s the size it is. For Europeans to comprehend, it is essentially 1 liter.

        Restaurant supply stores, online, etc. They’re called “BiBs” or “Bags in Boxes”. Usually $80-100 each. Obviously meant for restaurant use, I don’t recommend buying it yourself you couldn’t make that much soda before it goes bad. But one of those bad boys will make ~120 liters of soda.

        SodaStream has begun selling Pepsi syrups for home use. If they weren’t an Israeli company I’d buy them.

        I actually don’t know maybe look in a wholesalers if you have one of those near you that lets you shop without having a business reason you can also buy it in regular shops sometimes but then you’ll only find brands like sodastream not actual coca cola and fanta and that though
