Over the past four plus decades, we’ve seen more than our fair share of strange Star Wars merch, from air purifiers to soup cans, to pepper mills. The latest in that long line of weird products – Darth Vader and Stormtrooper snack servers.
These desktop helmets feature a mechanism which doles out a handful of snacks when you place your hand in front of them. As you can see from the video below, they also speak lines from the movies as the puke out some bar snacks. In this case, they’re serving up some persimmon seeds.
The Darth and Stormy dispensers are being made by Japan’s TakaraTomy A.R.T.S. and are expected to sell for about $75 when they drop this November.
So, what pairs well with the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 soundtrack? If you said Doritos, you’d be right. The snack chip maker is teaming up with Marvel Studios to promote the movie in a very cool way.
They have created a limited-edition series of Doritos bags with a built-in, rechargeable cassette deck-inspired player that plays the movie’s full soundtrack. Feel free to eat the entire bag while feeding your mind with some great tunes. The soundtrack has 14-songs from the ’60s and ’70s, from artists like Fleetwood Mac, George Harrison, Cheap Trick and a new track by The Sneepers and David Hasselhoff.
You’ll be able to pick up this limited-edition Guardians Doritos bag on April 28th through Amazon. No word yet on the price. They surely won’t last long.
There is always something bizarre to eat coming out of Japan. Boy, that sounded weird. If you like coffee, Japan may have the next snack for you to drool over. The treat is from Snow Brand Milk and is a spreadable version of the company’s coffee.
Apparently, the company’s coffee drinks are very creamy and sweet so it might make for a good spread to rival Nutella and peanut butter. The same brand launched another edible coffee treat a few years back. That original was a coffee pudding with a creamy topping, coffee middle, and caramel sauce bottom.
I want to like coffee, but I just can’t stand the stuff. I get my caffeine intake via Diet Dr. Pepper.
If Darth Vader was into crunchy snacks with hulls that get stuck between his teeth, you better believe that he would use this awesome popcorn maker. When you aren’t using it, the bowl clamps over the top to complete a cool and shiny Death Star sculpture sitting on your counter.
When you want to use it, you take off that cover and use it to catch the popped corn that comes out. Plus, it’s a hot air popcorn maker, so no oil is needed to make the corn making it more healthy. It can hold 1/2 cup of kernels and makes 8 cups of popped corn.
All you need is a lightsaber butter melter to complete the kit. The Death Star popcorn maker is $49.99 and available from ThinkGeek.
I figure at some point we have all known that one person who likes to put their chips directly on their sandwich. My wife does that, and the upside is it keeps her hands out of the bag during lunch.Philippines locations of Taco Bell have a new food that puts a cheap Mexican food twist on the ole chips-on-a-sandwich meal.
The new snack is called the Cheetos Quesadilla and it is exclusive to the country. It’s a tortilla packed with melted cheese with the messy and cheesy snack crisps thrown inside to boot. As you can tell in the tweet below, the real thing isn’t quite as appetizing as the styled photos for the ads, but it still looks good to me.
so i got the cheetos quesadilla on taco bell for free HAHAHA TY GODDDDDD SO GOOODDD pic.twitter.com/ECqcCl01g9

All we get here in the States is a burrito with Fritos tossed inside. Supposedly if you ask for this specifically at Taco Bells in the Philippines, they will give you one for free.
There are desk toys and then there are desk toys. Put this McDonald’s French Fry vending machine on your desk and you will always have fries. This awesome LEGO machine dispenses fries along with a packet of ketchup.
This fun vending machine is yet another awesome Mindstorms-powered creation from Astonishing Studios. Just put in a dollar in quarters for each serving. It would be awesome to have this in the office with you so you can charge your coworkers for their snacks.
I’m kind of surprised that McDonald’s hasn’t figured out a way to create their own fry vending machines that serves fresh hot fries and puts them everywhere. Get on that McDonald’s, unless you want us all to build our own. Of course these are cold and probably not very fresh.

It’s no secret we love bacon. We could even say we’re “in love” with bacon. You can easily see for yourselves. We also have a soft spot for Sriracha, as you can see here. So when we heard that Savage Jerky guys had made some Bacon Sriracha Jerky, we were at a loss for words. What more can a poor blogger want to snack on than this delicious sounding concoction? At $8 for a 2oz bag, it’s not exactly cheap. But do we really care? Bacon Sriracha Jerky? Come on!
Craftster forum user BadWolf314 of Boise, ID is a Whovian and when her husband wanted his own soda machine for their home, she was more than happy to oblige in the form of a TARDIS so that it matched their movie room. The end result is a TARDIS snack cabinet. A place for Jammie Dodgers as well as fish fingers and custard.
The body is mostly plywood and MDF. Puck lights were used to light the interior. It stands at about 5’6″ tall. And even though it isn’t your standard soda machine, there is a small refrigerator and a microwave in there, so it should serve all of their snacking needs – especially on movie night.
As long as it doesn’t de-materialize anyway. I hope they have some bananas in there for the 9th Doctor.
