Most humans find their own blood has a rusty metallic salt like taste due to the iron content in the hemoglobin. On the other hand Vampires describe the taste as being like an indescribable sweet Heavenly nectar beyond anything a human could comprehend. It’s like being able to perpetually exist off nothing but sweet desserts without any negative health repercussions. In fact it is the perfect paranormal fuel for vampires! Naturally different blood types along with a person’s nutritional balance alter that sweetness positively or negatively. Also eating something that vampires find repellent can deeply alter the taste. At the top of the list is garlic. Although a vampire usually smells it on the human and won’t bother drinking their tainted blood.
Vampire Relish In The Delicious Delight Of Human Blood
Vampires have an instinctive urge to consume blood due to the demonic DNA within crying out for it. However the intoxicating taste and aroma has additive qualities for a vampire. They feel a surge of energy and euphoria upon ingesting it. The excitement is doubled if they are hunting down a human as prey for the purposes of draining them of blood. The true source of the bloods power lies in the human soul which manifests paranormal properties that are undetectable to human science. It’s metaphysical energy ripe with information from the body, mind, and soul. It sails through the blood and is psychically read by the vampires mind. Vampires are able to temporarily acquire the talents and skills of the human whose blood they’ve consumed. This comes in handy when they need to infiltrate and blend into the human world for various reasons. This transfer also applies to humans with various psychokinetic powers.
The Power Of Paranormal Blood
The most ideal food for vampires is human blood. Animal blood just doesn’t taste as good nor does it give them the same power surge. Although it will do when there is no other choice. That being said there are some paranormal creatures whose blood might be even sweeter, or merely just provide more powerful bodily effects that would motivate a vampire to go after them. Since these creatures are rare there’s not much opportunity to seize upon such beings. For instance Gnome blood is said to taste like peppermint wheat grass mushrooms. This is probably due to all the mint clover they smoke along with the toadstools they eat. Still vampires will grin, and bear it if they are lucky enough to bag a Gnome. This is due to the blood giving them the ability to exist in sunlight for a few hours.
It’s known that Mermaid blood is even sweeter than human blood. This is not surprising since mermaids are technically half human and were originally humans from lost continent of Atlantis. Consuming this blood causes vampires to temporarily turn into a mermaid which puts them ironically in a weakened fish out of water state. Of Course, they could also utilize it to infiltrate Atlantis and It’s said that the sweetest blood of all is that of an Angel taking biological form. Unfortunately it will kill most vampires instantly. For those whose soul is good it will actually reverse their vampirism, and restore their human state. The next sweetest blood is said to be Unicorn blood which in fact will make a vampire invincible, and immune to all magic. This state is rumored to be permanent if the blood is fresh. This is why Unicorn blood is just about the most sought after blood for vampires, and many other supernatural beings as well.
The most avoided blood is that of the Walking Dead Zombie, or the blood of any dead human, which acts as a weakening poison on vampires. In a way it’s like Kryptonite to vampires. In large enough quantities it might kill them. It is said to taste like rotted meat which makes sense considering a zombie is in fact a rotting living dead corpse. This taste, and it’s stench protects vampires from being tricked into drinking it. However sneaky magical methods can mask this, and damn them to death!
Vampire blood itself is virtually tasteless to a vampire but they will partake of each others blood to form a psychic bond, and in some cases to share memories. The joy of drinking another vampires blood comes from the emotional aspect rather then the lack of taste, and physical attributes. It is essential in the process of transforming a human to a vampire as it creates the bond between sire, and vampire child. To humans, vampire blood ironically tastes similar in sweetness to human blood on a vampires palate. That’s why vampires use it to lure in unsuspecting human victims on which to prey upon!
