She’s got it where it counts, kid

Online grocery shopping is generally supposed to reduce impulse buying, right?  We’ve been doing weekly grocery pickup for nearly two years…so, how do you explain these??

They are in my kitchen now.

I am a sucker for Star Wars-themed foods.  I’ve bought SW soup, SW mac and cheese, SW Jell-O…I guess in retrospect it’s not such a surprise that I bought the SW ice cream sandwiches.

I love that they are labeled as “great for birthdays,” as if this would be useful marketing when you are already in the store holding the box.  Then again, it would be totally awesome to have a birthday party with Millennium Falcon ice cream sandwiches.

I also love that they are labeled “light” ice cream, which just seems to mean that the first ingredient is skim milk rather than full-fat milk or cream.

But the real questions…how are they??

I think they did a pretty good job on the design!  They even got the sensor dish and the cockpit!

And I thought they were pretty tasty, too.  I’m not sure why they went with vanilla sandwiches, especially when the Falcon is greyish, but I thought it was good.  But then, I’m one of those people that likes vanilla Frostys, which according to my husband are not even real Frostys.

What crazy things have you guys been buying online while you are stuck at home?

    I saw something like this on social media! This and 2 other Disney themed ice creams. It definitely looks like its worth a try!

      Ah, so it could be a Disney promotion! That hadn’t occurred to me. I’ll have to check it out, because I would totally buy other Disney ice cream!

    Hi Mei-Mei, years ago I used to buy Star Wars biscuits (cookies) that had SW characters and vehicles drawn on them with mint flavoured icing sugar – they were really nice (there were also some chocolate coated ones too). But Star Wars foodstuff has been hard to get hold of during the lockdown in England.
    On a shopping side note though, a parcel did drop on my doorstep this week and it contained a tunic and a wizard robe. My long awaited Jedi costume arrived. I might post a reveal of it when I finish making some small alterations.
    Stay safe and enjoy your sandwiches (hope you had blue milk too 😉)

        Hi Mei-Mei, sadly I don’t think the biscuits are available now but they were moreish (you couldn’t just eat one!) The costume was a bit of a bargain as after it was delivered I was expecting an import/Value Added Tax demand but I didn’t get one. Turns out that items shipped from China costing less than £135 aren’t taxed! So I’m putting the spare cash towards my boots 😀
