May the forks be with you as you prepare snacks for your Star Wars extravaganza this December. Although there is nothing wrong with tucking into traditional movie snacks like popcorn and a soda while you watch Rise of Skywalker, preparing dishes that are on theme with this incredibly popular space movie series adds a little magic that is difficult to beat. Whether you are young or old, you are bound to enjoy the treats that we have listed below.
Prepare yourself for a journey into the wild world of Star Wars
More than forty years after the first movie was released, the Star Wars legacy finally comes to an end this December. Rise of Skywalker picks up the story approximately a year after the events of The Last Jedi. In this movie, you can expect a fight like no other as the last remaining members of the Resistance face the First Order yet again. In addition to this, the fight between Sith and Jedi reach a critical point. Although food is not a crucial part of this film, it definitely adds a touch of excitement for the viewer, so be sure to stock up on treats to keep you sustained during this long-awaited finale.
- Savoury options: If there is one thing that is essential for a viewing of Star Wars, it is a selection of the tastiest salty treats that you could ever dream of. Visit your favourite sushi joint and stock up on rice rolls for your friends and family and make-believe that they are the Pog rice rolls mentioned in the series. Alternatively, you could serve up a portion of Soba noodles and tell your loved ones that they are Chewbacca’s staple food.
- Sweet treats: Watching a movie just isn’t the same unless you have a large variety of cookies cakes and chocolates available to you. Order up a large batch of choc-chip cookies stuffed with M&Ms for unbeatable asteroid cookies. Another great option is to whip up a batch of wobbly jelly that is coloured with activated charcoal. The end result is a large bowl of carbonite, the same material that Hans Solo was trapped in. Fortunately, your odds of getting trapped in this sweet treat are slim to none as you can grab a spoon and eat your way out.
- Drinks: You can’t watch Star Wars without a large variety of drinks to sip on. Make yourself a cocktail named The Force: simply combine Chambord, vodka and lemonade and garnish your drink with a glow stick. Or you could make a Dark Side cocktail by mixing coconut rum, Cointreau and pomegranate juice. The drink you choose depends entirely on which side of the battle you find yourself, so slurp in victory or enjoyment either way.
Where to stock up on these treats
If the thought of a Star Wars feast appeals to you, be sure to stock up on cookies from Ben’s Cookies and remember to place an order for Takuni Hot Noodles at Issho Izakay.
