In reality, each bottle is worth two drinks or more. Here's how to get the most bang for your buck. After you spend $16.00 to $25.00 for the four-pack, buy a 1-liter of either (or both) Sprite and/or club soda for a couple of dollars.

If you have a sweet tooth, do a 50/50 mix of Tru Blood with Sprite. If you prefer to dull the sweetness, then do the same but with club soda. Be creative and mix to your taste.

Remember, this beverage has a slight fizz to it (carbonation), so you'll need a fizzy mixer to help it maintain its integrity.

You might also want to keep you first empty bottle so that you can poor half of the subsequent bottle into the first bottle and store your mixes.

Also tastes great with freshly-oxygenated arterial blood at 98.6F. (Just kidding.)

Hope this helps.

This soda is really delicious. I was able to try a sample of it at a booth at a local conference in Seattle and was instantly in love with it. It's a very unique (and yummy) flavored soda because of the blood orange, and because of that it only makes spending the money for it worth it. It's sweet, but not overly so. The bottles are quite hefty which adds to the authenticity, they really do look like the ones on the show. Whether you are buying the soda for decoration (we have one of them on a shelf) or for drinking, it's worth the price for this unique soda. I highly recommend it.

I bought this product from Amazon and it was filled via Taylor's Market. I can say that when HBO's website has a shortage WAIT UNTIL THEY GET MORE! The sellers here on amazon jack the prices up worse than the Oil companies in a shortage for these, and honestly, its not even worth it... Sub-standard orange soda at best.

I really enjoy this drink and have just bought my third pack. First of, consider that you are actually buying heavy glass, solid prop replicas. The drink inside doesn't matter so much. The bottle is most important. It looks just like the show. It's very large and substantial in your hand. Also the glass is quite thick and heavy. But what's disappointing is that it has a paper label. I really wish it was something more long lasting. However, if you're careful you can wash out the inside and mouth of the bottle without ruining the paper and reuse these. There's something just really enjoyable and rewarding about holding this heavy bottle that feels like you're drinking something really from the show.

As for the drink itself, I actually don't find it sweet tasting. I think it tastes a lot like Orange Crush, but a little bit less fizzy and more complex. I wish it was more carbonated. At first I didn't care much for the taste, but the more I drink, the more and more I like it.

To get your money's worth, though, just wash them out gently and refill with some Orange Crush or Sprite and a few drops of red food coloring if you want.

While I do think that the bottle design rocks, and it stays true to the bottles we see in True Blood, the drink itself, well... it's not BAD, but it's not great either.

I didn't want to spend the $25 USD for the four pack I saw at Hot Topic, especially if I didn't know if I was going to like it, so thankfully Saturday Matinee sells the single bottles for about $5 USD a pop.

Tru Blood actually tastes better warm, or at least room temp, which I found out after popping my bottle in the fridge. And it's not something you can chug. It is very much something I could only sip a bit at a time. It tastes more like a REALLY sweet fruit punch, but I couldn't find any hint of blood orange in it.

If you're not a fan of overly really sweet drinks, I wouldn't recommend it, but if you DO like really sweet stuff, then go for it.

I will say, though, that every fan of the True Blood series should try the drink at least ONCE. Build your own opinion from tasting it yourself. If you're not willing to drop $25 for a 4 pack of it, you can sometimes find the single bottles at Borders, the larger Barnes and Nobles stores, or Saturday Matinee.

I would also recommend that people who are diabetic, STAY AWAY. Sugar cane is the second ingredient in Tru Blood.

Weird, everyone seem to like it. I just had to come here to read what people thought of Tru Blood, after pouring the remaining half of my bottle down the drain... I personally couldn't finish it, found it almost undrinkable in fact. Sickly sweet with barely a trace of "Blood Orange", it tastes completely artificial and I can't honestly recommend it, even to fans. Happily I picked mine up from a bargain bin! I'll stick to watching the show in future...
