Vampire Thirst Quenched as 'Tru Blood' Beverage Comes to Stores


Tru Blood, the preferred synthetic blood drink of integrated vampires in HBO's Alan Ball series True Blood, is coming to a store near you in September:

"The blood-orange carbonated drink has a slightly tart and lightly sweet flavor that is sure to taste better than the O negative blood consumed by the show's fictional vampires. Crafted to replicate the appearance of the synthetic blood beverage preferred by the undead in the series, the real-life drink will also be called Tru Blood."

Ball introduced the beverage at Comic-Con, the NYDN reports: "[Ball] joked that the drink was a mixture of 'wine, vodka, Vicodin, Viagra and Ecstasy' and that it was 'completely illegal.'"

Tru Blood will cost $16 for a four-pack. It can be pre-ordered here.

  2. If Sam Merlotte served it to me, I'd pay $100 a bottle. And giggle nervously the whole the time.

  5. I'd maybe buy it once, but $16 is certainly not worth it for pop.
