This December, the premiere of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is the holiday gift we're looking for. In the precursor to Star Wars: A New Hope, the Rebel Alliance has recruited Jyn Erso to work with a team to steal the plans for the Empire's new superweapon that's definitely not a moon.
To get to these plans they'll encounter stormtroopers and lots of them. This holiday season troopers get a little more festive with this peppermint flavored version of Galactic Empire soldiers. A little minty for a stormtrooper, these chocolate candies are infused with a hint of peppermint oil and a heavy hand of crushed candies. They're definitely ready to battle any grinches that come their way this year, because there's no stopping these jolly bucketheads.
Make up an army of troopers for your friends and family to enjoy while watching Rogue One. Happy holidays and may the Force be with you.
