Contest – Get Your Lips On Some Tru Blood!

October 15, 2011 by  

The Delicious Beverage Debuts in Stores:

The New Plastic Tru Blood BottleNow that Tru Blood is available in plastic bottles well equipped for mortal hands, it is being more widely distributed.  BevMo!, a leading specialty retailer in the western United States, has slated the beverage for distribution in California and Arizona stores.  FMCG Manufacturing Company’s unique beverage will also be available in BevMo’s online store (www.bevmo.com) for #2.99 per bottle, or at Amazon. Over 1 million bottles have already been sold nationwide.

The Tru Blood soda will boast a distinct blood orange flavor. The taste will be both a bit sweet and a bit tangy, perfect for your favorite mixed drinks. The soda itself will be alcohol free so you don’t have to worry if any “teacup humans” get their hands on it.
