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.

    I am looking forward to seeing if Sookie hooks up with Alcide.

  • i’m looking forward to seeing Lafayette discover Tara and sookie in the kitchen.  what a mess.

  • I’m looking forward to all of it, waiting sucks!!!!!!!!!

  • I’m looking forward to the return of Russell, finding out what’s up with Rev. Newlin, and how things go between Sookie and Eric after the witch war… and of course more Pam!!

  • I am looking forward to seeing what everyone will be doing especially Jason and Jessica!!

  • I am looking forward to seeing who Sookie chooses to be with, what Russell has in store for everyone and of course just more ERIC!!!

  • I am looking forward to more character development. We still do not know all the different abilities Sookie has. We don’t know what is different about Jason. Alcide and Sookie will hopefully get closer this season and I am guessing that he might be part of the puzzle for her finding out what else she can do. I predict that each character will have more of a focus episode where we learn the most about him/her. Each season so far has grown in depth and I expect Season 5 to be a continuation of that. I’m really wishing June/July would come already!
