According to www.digitalspy.com, garlic sales have increased due to a vampire warning. In December 2012, they wrote, "Sales of garlic have reportedly rocketed in Western Serbia after a local council issued a warning that a vampire is on the loose.
The public health warning was triggered when an old mill, which many apparently believe belonged to village vampire Sava Savanovic, collapsed due to lack of care. The notorious vampire is said to have lived in the old watermill, where he drank the blood of anyone who came to collect grain. The mayor of the village said he is unfazed about being mocked by others who do not share a belief in the legend, placing the safety of his citizens first.
Residents have also been advised to place holy crosses in every room of their houses as a further precaution."
GarlicMaster Lowell says, "Be sure to have plenty of our garlic on hand in case your mayor issues a warning that a vampire is on the loose!"
