    From a former Redditor:

    They sell blood-flavored candy at Honeydukes. So probably various sorts of blood flavored food and probably blood of animals.

    Vampires Don't Have To Strictly Eat Blood

    From Redditor u/res30stupid:

    Vampires don't subsist entirely on blood; they can indeed eat other food such as pasties (Sanguini, a guest's Plus-One at Slughorn's Christmas party, was offered one) but blood is an important part of their diet.

    Rowling Never Really Wanted Vampires In Her Story

    From Redditor u/ravenclaw1991:

    JK Rowling said she didn't really include them because they've been used so much and she didn't think she had anything to add to the lore of them. That's why we only ever saw the one and got fleeting mentions of them.

    A Blood-Replenishing Potion Can Help Vampires

    From Redditor u/res30stupid:

    A type of healing potion that can be used is a blood-replenishing potion. It may be possible for a vampire to drink this and "Top Up," so to speak. Alternatively, they could use a Refilling Charm to take a small amount, presumedly that which would fit into a small beaker, to quickly fill a goblet that the vampire could drink from.

    There Was Almost A Vampire Professor At Hogwarts

    From Redditor u/ravenclaw1991:

    Originally, there was going to be a Hogwarts teacher that was a vampire but she changed her mind really early on. So they were definitely going to have a larger role at first.
