There is no epic greater than Star Wars, the most impactful franchise of all time (sorry, Vin Diesel). While Star Wars certainly fills our hearts with joy, can we say that it also fills our stomachs with hunger? Both food and drink pop up in the Star Wars universe more often than you might think. In honor of Star Wars Day (aka May the 4th be with you), here are the 10 best food moments from Star Wars.
The blue milk from Episode IV: A New Hope
The Star Wars food item that truly started it all was Luke's blue milk. Why is it blue? Because it’s bantha milk, of course. In the original film, the blue milk is simply a part of Luke and Uncle Lars’ balanced breakfasts, but the beverage has since popped up in both the prequels and Rogue One as well. Blue milk has become such an symbol for Star Wars fans that even Rogue One director Gareth Edwards took the time to enjoy a glass of it when he visited the original sets from A New Hope for his 30th birthday, 11 years ago.

The Mos Eisley cantina from Episode IV: A New Hope
An old wizard, a farm boy and two droids walk into a bar. That’s essentially how the famous Mos Eisley cantina scene begins, but it’s what follows that everyone really remembers. First, Luke’s altercation at the bar, which results in Ponda Baba's arm getting cut off. Then there’s the infamous Greedo and Han interaction (never forget, Han DEFINITELY shot first). Also, let us not skip over the bartender’s inherent prejudice against droids. Even in a world where this guy can rule an underwater kingdom, droids can't even get a seat at the bar.
