Here’s All the Game of Thrones Food (and Drink) You Can Try Right Now

Next Sunday, the world will gather ‘round TVs (and laptops) to begin the long-awaited final season of Game of Thrones. As our sister site Vulture points out, it may be the last show we ever collectively watch in the age of peak TV. Accordingly, corporations, restaurants, and every company in between are desperate to stake a place in the phenomenon with Thrones-themed food and drink — and Grub has compiled a convenient, comprehensive list. Here’s all the HBO-approved Game of Thrones eating and imbibing you can do right now.

Mountain Dew
The soda brand is giving away GoT–themed cans that appear blank at first, but, once cooled, reveal Arya Stark’s famed kill list, with the names of all the people she has sought — and continues to seek — revenge against.

Shake Shack
The original location of this burger chain, in Madison Square Park, is truly going over the top ahead of the premiere. Not only has Shake Shack come up with a spicy Dracarys Burger and a Dragonglass Shake — the latter featuring mint, white chocolate, and shards of toffee — but customers have to order the meal in the fictional Valyrian language. Talk about committing to a theme.

Brewery Ommegang
This New York State brewery hopped aboard the Game of Thrones train way back in 2013, so it’s no surprise that the team has put together another HBO-approved brew for the show. This one is a strong golden ale co-brewed with grape juices and dubbed “For the Throne.” The beer is available nationwide right now.

To mark the return of the show, Oreo is selling themed packages of its cookies featuring the house sigils of the Lannisters, the Starks, and the Targaryians, as well as one with an image of a White Walker. So, they’re just normal Oreos with a different design. But, the company did go above and beyond in painstakingly recreating part of the show’s iconic opening segment with Oreo cookies.

Johnnie Walker, Oban Distillery, and others
If watching Game of Thrones has driven you to drink, you’ll be happy to know that HBO has approved the creation of nine GoT-themed scotch whiskeys, including a White Walker blended scotch from Johnnie Walker. The others, including one from Scotland’s Oban distillery, are named for the series’ family houses, including the Tullies, the Starks, the Targaryans, the Tyrells, and there’s even one for the Night’s Watch, who need a drink more than anyone else.

Game of Thrones Wine
For those who identify most closely with the wine-swilling Lannister, HBO commissioned award-winning winemaker Bob Cabral to create three different wines inspired by the many fictional terroirs of the books. The wines include a red blend, Chardonnay, and a Cabernet Sauvignon that quickly sold out. The other two are very much available, though.

Starting next Sunday, this company — the U.K. equivalent of Grubhub or Seamless — will be delivering white chocolate dragon eggs modeled after the three dragon eggs (and subsequent dragons) that put Daenerys Targaryen on the map. Each weighs about two pounds, with a circumference of seven inches, and sells for just over a dollar. Unfortunately, you can’t get them outside of a few select cities in Great Britain, but you gotta respect the attention to detail.
