9 'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' Food Products Available in This Galaxy
The Star Wars universe has once again expanded to your grocery store, from glow-in-the-dark water bottles to yogurt that decides your “Force” fate.
With the release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi just around the corner, it feels like every major company is powering up their lightsaber and giving fans a chance to enjoy a plethora of Last Jedi themed tie-ins. That includes the likes of car company Nissan and electronics company Vizio, but also food brands like General Mills, Campbells, and Dole. If you’re looking for some Empire-approved food and snacks—to eat or collect—here are nine Star Wars: The Last Jedi food promotions popping up in a galaxy near you.
Earlier this year, Campbell’s made an appearance at New York Comic Con, giving attendees a chance to view a can sculpture installation inspired by the film’s characters. They’ve since released a limited edition line of Star Wars-inspired soups, with labels featuring various characters and die-cut noodles in the shape of Darth Vader, Chewbacca, BB-8 and Stormtroopers.
Star Wars Punch
Released in collaboration with Drink Department One, this Last Jedi tie-in is a line of sparkling vitamin drinks that feature a single blended flavor, including blackberry, blueberry, carrot, grapefruit, orange, pear, and raspberry juices. Even better, the drinks come in limited edition cans featuring 20 different characters from the light and dark side.
General Mills Cereal
General Mills has done a number of cereal tie-ins over the course of the Star Wars franchise, but this one is one of the coolest. Not only does your cereal come in a special box featuring characters from The Last Jedi—BB-8, Captain Phasma, Chewbacca, R2-D2, Kylo Ren and Rey—but inside the box is a color changing spoon that activates when exposed to cold milk.
Dole Fruits and Veggies
For this healthy food promotion, LucasFilm and Dole teamed up to rebrand all of the food company’s packaging and labels with characters and imagery from The Last Jedi. Dole went one step further, also releasing a series of healthy recipes inspired by elements of the film, including a First Order Smoothie, Porgs and Greens, Wookie Noodles, and The Resistance Salad.
Popchips, a celebrity-endorsed alternative to traditional potato chips (Ashton Kutcher and Katy Perry are both backers) released “Galactic Puffs” as part its Star Wars promotion. Coming in flavors like sour cream and onion, white cheddar, and barbeque, the puffs are shaped like characters and spacecraft from The Last Jedi.
Like the color changing spoon, Yoplait’s tie-in is more intricate than just a character image on a box. While the flavors have remained the same for the limited time promotion, if you download the official Star Wars app, you can scan your Go-Gurt box and within the app’s ‘Explore the Force’ module complete various activities and discover which side of the force you belong on.
This water brand from Danone doesn’t just feature a new label with characters like Rey, Finn and Poe, and words to express your “inner strength.” Because it’s hard to dazzle up water, the label glows in the dark, letting character’s like Rey and her lightsaber take on new life.
The Popsicle brand is known for its various character tie-ins, from Spongebob to, appropriately, Frozen. To celebrate The Last Jedi, the company altered its boxes to feature main characters, including fan favorites Rey and BB-8, on its boxes, as well as flavors that feature lightsaber colors.
Ample Hills Ice Cream
This official food tie-in offers three exclusive flavors designed with the First Order, Resistance and Force in mind. The special edition flavors feature Ample Hills famous sweet cream ice cream, and includes a variety of ingredients like red velvet, fudge swirls, salted dark chocolate and toffee pieces. Each one offers a different texture and flavor profile for the sweet, salty and bitter ice cream lovers in our lives.
