In the HBO Series True Blood, the development of synthetic blood immediately turns vampires from creatures of the shadows to fellow citizens. This synthetic blood is made into a prominant drink for vampires, called ‘TruBlood’. With the series being a hit, a human version of ‘TruBlood’ has been created and released upon us as a ‘uniquely carbonated, slightly tart, lightly sweet blood orange drink’.
In reality, we have no substitute to human blood. That is why the area hospitals need about 5,000 pints a week. Please remember to donate blood if you can, and make sure you are hydrated (not necissarily with blood orange!).
