Celebrate the Final Season of Game of Thrones With These Westeros-Inspired Snacks. This past weekend, the final season of Game of Thrones premiered. Now, the hit HBO series, which debuted in April 2011, will (let's hope) answer who will finally sit on the Iron Throne. The show has garnered legions of viewers who pledge allegiance to the house of Stark, Targaryen, or even Lannister. If you're a superfan, you still have the opportunity to literally drink in the experience with these Game of Thrones-inspired beverage and food offerings.
