New HBO products makes fans hungry for 'True Blood'

courtesy HBO
Although we are a several months from new episodes of True Blood, the HBO Store is helping fans satisfy their appetite for the vampire soap with a new line of food and lifestyle products.

For instance, if you've ever wanted to indulge in Gran's or Lafayette's cooking, you will be sated once you take a bite of the True Blood: Eats, Drinks, and Bites from Bon Temps cookbook. It will tantalize your tastebuds with 85 recipes from "The Queen of Cajun Cooking," Marcelle Bienvenu. It also contains 150 photos from the hit HBO series and it is available for $29.99 in major bookstores and online.

Of course, if you're going to get cooking in Bon Temps, you'll need a cool apron. The "Don't Bite The Cook" apron warns nearby vamps to let you finish your recipe and serve dinner before you become theirs for $29.99

Speaking of human food, if you want to smell like delicious half-fae Sookie, you should try being Forsaken. A recently launched fragrance from Givaudan, Forsaken is "evocative of the dark and seductive world of True Blood" with "an addictive blend of light and
dark notes which are ultra-feminine, yet sultry." The Forsaken collection also includes a body cream, shimmering body powder and candles. You could also add in some lipstick and nail polish that incorporates the ultra-feminine scent. And it won't take too big a bite out of your wallet, with prices that range from $25-$58.
