The first image of the crimson drink is from Hottopic. Its’ tagline says “Enliven yourself with this uniquely carbonated, slightly tart, lightly sweet blood orange drink. The bottle is an exact replica of the bottle design as seen on the show.” You can buy this 4-pack for $24.99
Whereas if you were to buy it from the HBO website, it costs a low $16 dollars. Its’ description is as follows,
Sink your fangs into a bottle of Tru Blood, a delicious blood orange carbonated drink inspired by Bill’s favorite synthetic blood nourishment beverage. Tart and slightly sweet, Tru Blood pours like a regular soda but appears stormy and mysterious when poured into a glass. Bottoms up – and vampires, remember to drink responsibly!
The Tru Blood beverage features:
- Stunning bottle design is exact replica of bottles featured on show: stained in rich red with raised English lettering and matching Japanese Kanji!
- 14 ounce per bottle
Even is these are both in dineros Americanos, we vote HBO to quell our vampire obsession and the show even though there is an additional surcharge of 8 dollars.
Who else thinks that Hottopic bought the bottles and jacked up the price?
