SEATTLE, Sept. 15 (UPI) -- Starbucks says beginning Thursday tall drinks will return to the menus for all its U.S. drive-through locations.

The 12-oz. size disappeared from drive-through menu boards Aug. 31, leaving only larger, more expensive drinks for customers, USA Today reports.

The new boards listed 16-ounce grandes and 20-ounce ventis as the sizes available, dropping the smaller, cheaper tall size.

Starbucks officials said tall was omitted because customers requested a simplified menu board for drive-throughs.

"We want to make sure there is no confusion and that our menu reflects a range of price points," said spokeswoman Deb Trevino about the reversal.

About one-third of the chain's 1,000 U.S. stores have drive-throughs so customers can purchase drinks without leaving their vehicles.
