The premiere of "Star Wars: The Last Jedi" is here and with it comes the usual "Star Wars" merchandise takeover. The hype can be seen by the massive army of stormtroopers waiting in line for movie tickets, the recent influx of Jedi-themed grocery produce and the Louboutin "force-powered" fashion show.
The latest saga-related merch, ice cream in three flavors, comes in Ample Hills Creamery pints and is flavored based on where your loyalty lies -- The Force, Resistance or the First Order.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi, is not out yet but our limited edition ice cream flavors are! In collaboration with @disney we've created 3 flavors inspired by the films' narrative; First Order//salted dark chocolate ice cream represents relentless villainy, while cocoa powder, bittersweet chocolate and a dash of powerful espresso reinforce the dark side. Resistance//vanilla bean ice cream with an assortment of mix-ins: fiery red velvet ooey gooey butter cake to represent tenacity, hard-edged toffee pieces to exhibit ferocity, and hopeful marshmallows. The Force//sweet cream ice cream, swirled with rich chocolate fudge, and set against a galaxy of white and dark chocolate pearls. It illustrates the precarious balance between the dark side and the light side. Each Star Wars 3-Pack ships nationwide in a specially designed box with a punch-out X-Wing. Available in Scoop shops on Monday and for nationwide shipping today. ??link in profile?? #StarWarsIceCream #maytheforcebewithyou
The Brooklyn-based creamery teamed up with Disney and Lucasfilm to create a trio of "Star Wars"-themed flavors in celebration of the movie's premiere on Dec. 15. The three different kinds of "The Last Jedi" ice cream flavors are based on the movie's major themes:
The First Order pint celebrates the fierce wickedness of the First Order and comes in a salted dark chocolate ice cream made with cocoa powder, bittersweet chocolate and a dash of espresso.
The Resistance flavor is a brown sugar and vanilla bean ice cream with a bunch of mix-ins to celebrate the motley resistance fighters crew. Red velvet butter cake, hard-edged toffee pieces and mini-marshmallows are sprinkled throughout.
Get a taste of the dark and light side in The Force ice cream flavor. Each spoonful is a sweet cream ice cream mixed with dark swirls of rich chocolate fudge in a "galaxy" of white and dark chocolate pearls.
You can purchase these pints individually at select retailers, including Whole Foods, or in a 3-pack online at Ample Hill Creamery's website for $30 before shipping. The package comes in a specially designed, limited-edition box with a punch-out X-wing fighter (video below).
Other "Star Wars" consumable merchandise includes Dole bananas and pineapples, for a "Unite for a Healthy Galaxy" sweepstakes featuring scannable stickers that can be redeemed for exclusive content, recipes and even prizes. "Star Wars" brand lettuce is also available, too.
I was willing to store that C-3POs box in my garage for 30+ years because cereal is immortal — but I may finally have to draw the line at Star Wars brand lettuce. pic.twitter.com/RAuPk9Qohn— John Jackson Miller (@jjmfaraway) December 4, 2017
And considering it's the holidays, you can find nearly any "Star Wars" product to eat, wear, carry, write with, shave with and even vacuum with. Samsung released a limited-edition POWERbot Robot Vacuum shaped like Darth Vader's head so you can clean your house using the force, of course.
