Star Wars Kitchen Accessories

Every once in a while we have a little fun posting some interesting Disney-related kitchen products, and our recent trip over to Think Geek has me thinking it’s time for a little Christmas in August post. ;-)

Stock your kitchen with this exclusive Star Wars stuff!

Star Wars Cookbook
Outlines Galactic recipes to make in your own Cantina! The whole family will enjoy making out of this world cuisine such as Wookiee Cookies, Jedi Juice Bars, and Twin Sun Toast.

I wonder what Tusken Raider Taters are… Get the Wookiee Cookbook here!

Death Star Giant Cookie Jar
Place your cookies inside the Death Star to protect them from outside forces. Everyone will join the Dark Side in order to reach in for a tempting treat!

The best part is, half the people who come to your house won’t even know what it is, so they’ll just think you’re all post-modern. Get yours here.

Darth Vader Cookie Jar
If the Death Star doesn’t do it for you, maybe Darth himself will! He’s sporting his Lightsaber, so you can always pretend to win a duel to get your cookie, therefore deserving it that much more. Darth Vader Cookie Jar here (cookies not included).

Star Wars Vader’s Dark Side Roast Coffee
Don’t let a day in your universe begin without coffee manufactured by Stormtroopers. We can’t vouch for the taste, but surely it has to be better than Nescafe.

Have a cup while raiding your Death Star cookie jar. Get yours here.

Star Wars 10 oz. Glasses
Let the Force flow through you when enjoying your favorite Jedi Juice in these [Read more…]
