Game of Thrones inspired food and drinks you can buy ahead of season 8



(Pictures: Amazon/Oreos/Shake Shack)The final season of Game of Thrones premieres in the UK on 14 April, and it’s certainly felt like a long time coming.
The show has become a complete sensation among TV bingers, and we’ve had everything from trainers to pyjamas to candles in its honour.
If you’re more of a food-motivated watcher, there are also some food and drink items you can purchase that bear the names of your Winterfell and Westeros faves.
Here are some bits you can buy for your GoT obsessive loved ones (or just hoard for yourself).
Whisky
There are actually a few different whiskys available for Game of Thrones lovers, with Johnnie Walker having released a White Walker blend very recently and Diageo creating a number of varieties.
The Johnnie Walker one is purported to be ‘light and fruity’ with ‘notes of vanilla and fresh fruit’.
The Diageo and HBO collection has ones for various GoT families, including the Tullies, the Starks, the Targaryens, the Tyrells, and even the Night’s Watch.
Oreos

As part of the Game of Thrones #ForTheThrone campaign – which has also brought us Urban Decay makeup inspired by the show – Oreo have something new.
The company debuted some classic-flavoured Oreos featuring different designs on them.
There are Lannister, Stark, Targaryen, and White Walker biscuits, and if reports are correct they’ll be hitting shelves very soon.
Wine
Whether you’re a red (wedding) or white (walker) person, there’s a GoT wine available for you.
Amazon sells a Red Blend Paso Robles for £38.90 a bottle and a 2016 Chardonnay for £38.90, both made by the Game of Thrones Winery in California.
Cake toppers

All the people you love are there – from Jon Snow to Arya Stark – and imagine how great you’ll feel chowing down of Joffrey after everything he’s done.
Get them from Amazon for £3.99 plus delivery fee.
Burgers
In anticipation of the eighth series, Shake Shack have come up with a Dracarys Burger and Dragonglass Shake. The shale features mint, white chocolate, and shards of toffee, while the burger has Monterey Jack, bacon, and a hot sauce to make it the ‘mother of burgers’.
Couple of hurdles for those in the UK who want to try it, though. Firstly; it’s only available in the Madison Square Garden restaurant in New York, and secondly; you have to ask for your meal in Valyrian to be sold.
Real fans who can crack the code can get the special items until May 19.
Easter eggs

Celebrate the new life of Easter with the death of all George RR Martin’s characters (Picture: Deliveroo)From Sunday 14 April to Easter Sunday, three Daenerys inspired Easter eggs will be available on Deliveroo. They’re only 80p as well!
They’re all made from Fairtrade white chocolate and sprayed to look like the eggs that gave Ms Targaryen her special status.
Joe Groves, head of consumer communications for Deliveroo in the UK and Ireland, said: ‘We see huge spikes of orders around season premieres and finales and we thought what better way to celebrate hardcore fans than with these amazing scaley creations’.
