SEATTLE, Sept. 17 (UPI) -- Grande, venti, mini?

On Tuesday, Starbucks announced it has started testing what the company is calling the Frappuccino Mini.

Starbucks said the mini will be 10 ounces in size, a little cheaper and lower in calories than the 12 ounce version.

The company said the Frappuccino Mini is currently being tested in Houston and Denver. How the tests go in those two cities will determine if the mini goes global.

Starbucks spokeswoman Lisa Passe said "It's about customers looking for choices. We're learning and listening to what customers are saying."

The Frappuccino Mini is about 30 cents cheaper than the traditional size.

All in all, the iced coffee drink means big bucks for Starbucks, the Frappuccino brings in about $2 billion per year for the company.

ST. LOUIS, Sept. 16 (UPI) -- On Tuesday, top sponsor of NFL football -- Anheuser-Busch -- took the league to task about the way it has handled the Ray Rice and Adrian Peterson scandals.

In a statement, Anheuser-Busch said, "We are disappointed and increasingly concerned by the recent incidents that have overshadowed this NFL season."

"We are not yet satisfied with the league's handling of behaviors that so clearly go against our own company culture and moral code. We have shared our concerns and expectations with the league."

The beer company is a sponsor of 88 percent of NFL teams. That makes it the second largest sponsor behind Gatorade.
