The circle is now complete. When I left you, I was but the cheddar. Now I am the grater.
Mobile gaming sensation Neko Atsume is spreading throughout culture like wildfire, inspiring costumes, memes and even food in its never-ending barrage of adorable feline friends. Now, in addition to mountains of merchandise and fan art, cat lovers can indulge in adorable, yummy lattes (or, at least, photos of them) based off of the game’s iconic kitties.

Latte artist NowToo has (temporarily) immortalized characters like Tubbs in fizzy, flavorful goodness.

Remember when The Force Awakens dropped and Rey’s character was far more important than everyone thought she’d be, yet she was inexplicably absent from almost all of the merch? Well, now she’s on soup, which is fitting considering she practically lived on instant meals while living on Jakku.
Campbell’s have revealed four limited-edition Star Wars: The Force Awakens tins with exclusive labels featuring BB-8, Kylo Ren, Rey and Finn as they prepare to… I don’t know, eat soup, I guess. These cans follow a previous range of Star Wars-themed soup tins which featured original-trilogy characters such as Darth Vader and R2-D2, both of whom are known for their fondness for heated broths.
These new soup tins will hit store shelves in mid-May. Parents will be excited – dare we say ecstatic – to learn that these soups don’t contain any added MSG, artificial flavors or artificial colors. Which is pretty nice of them.
Check out larger photos of the tin designs below.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens comes to dinner in the form of these new plate sets. Measuring 8″ x 8″, each set comes with four plates and three styles: photographs, comics, and (my favorite) Phasma with her troopers.
I love that it’s Phasma and three troopers because Finn’s off saving the galaxy. That’s symmetry.
Take a closer look below.
Just in time for spring, everyone’s favorite crime lord has returned from his gross, slimy deathbed in the form of an adorable marshmallow treat. Jenn Fujikawa managed to turn the repulsive outer rim slug into an adorable, edible treat that fits in perfectly at a galactic tea party.
The recipe requires:
1 cup green sanding sugar
1 envelope unflavored gelatin
⅓ cup water
1 cup sugar
¼ cup water
½ teaspoon vanilla

Or is he eating them right?
Yes, this is a picture of Oscar Isaac eating Cheetos with chopsticks. He’s also doing it with a mustache – which feels right in this scenario.
Hilarious, but it gets better…
Yuki of “Yukitchen” used potatoes, soy milk, vegetable stock and some Star Wars-inspiration to create a vegan Jabba the Hutt shepherd’s pie.
A sculpted mashed potato Jabba was positioned atop a stew throne and sent through the oven to achieve a golden brown hue. Additional color was then added with wet matcha powder before the familiar facial expression was created using dried seaweed.
If you want vegan Jabba to hang out in your kitchen/stomach, you can check out the complete recipe here.
