But of course, the next logical question will be, “Where am I going to store my soy sauce?”

Why, in your droid, obvi! Because the R2-D2 Sauce Dispenser is a must for your next gathering. And despite the picture, you can store other sauces in R2. Olive oil, hot sauce, you name it.

DIY Disney: Host Your Own Star Wars Weekend at Home!

You can’t make it to Star Wars Weekends, and you’re super bummed. Dude, I feel ya. Because I’m in the same landcruiser.

But you know, there’s a way to make a party out of the most dismal of circumstances. So with that lemonade-out-of-lemons attitude, I’m setting out to host my very own Star Wars Weekend at Home!

Care to join me? I thought you might!

The Star Wars Cookbook Deluxe Set (With Cookie Cutters!)

I’m assuming your Star Wars Weekend will involve a party or two, so of course you’ll want to stay on theme with the eats. Make the task of creating nibbles easy with the The Star Wars Cookbook Deluxe Set. Perfect for whipping up a batch of Yoda Soda and Landonuts. Plus, it comes with a set of cookie cutters, which will transform your favorite cookie recipe into the likenesses of Darth Vader, Yoda, and R2-D2.

I was bowled over by the Death Star Glow Spheres that we featured on the blog the other day! While I haven’t figured out how to get these at home — yet! — I do have the next best thing for your Dark Side Cocktail: Death Star Ice Sphere Molds!

The silicone mold is perfect for making mini Death Stars out of lots of things. Make ice for your intergalactic cocktails, or Dark Side Truffles. How about Darth Butter for your next dinner party? Or Death Star Soaps for the guest quarters?

Spotted! R2-D2 and Darth Vader Lunch Bags… with Special Effects!

‘Tis the season… and I’m not talking about Christmas! Star Wars Weekends at Disney’s Hollywood Studios are upon us (starting TOMORROW!!), and some extra fun Star Wars themed merchandise is arriving along with them. And when that merchandise is food-related?! Well, that’s all the better!

Check out these cool R2-D2 and Darth Vader lunch bags I saw at Tatooine Traders (the store next to the Star Tours attraction in Hollywood Studios) and Writer’s Stop! I don’t remember these from last year, so while I’m not sure if they’re new, they are new to me…

Now, when I say “cool,” I do mean that I think they are neat, but these padded lunch totes are also thermal for keeping your food cold. Score.

I’m partial to the R2-D2 bag.

Part of that is because I love him, but also the effects are pretty great. When you press the indicated button on top of the bag, you suddenly hear R2’s signature beeps and boops… but, get this: his lights also flash!
