Star Wars Branding is Everywhere, even Your Food

Are you sick of Star Wars before it even hits the theaters? I don’t blame you, I think this is the most over hyped show in the history of EVER. Everywhere you turn there is something with Star Wars blazoned across it.

On a recent grocery trip I surprised how many Star Wars branded items I found. Come on, it’s the grocery store. I would expect to see them in the cereal aisle or on candy, but on produce and water? What do they have to do with Star Wars?  When was the last time Darth Vader ate an apple?

Here are just a few that I have found on a recent internet search:

Somehow I just can't picture Yoda sitting by his campfire eating spaghettios' from the can

These get rebranded all the time, so I expect to see the latest characters on them

Even these don't surprise me too much as they are aimed at kids

I may be a little wrong, but I don't remember these being branded before

Chicken and Pasta Soup? Because we all know that chicken soup is good for a cold and the Dark Side

Now these are what really amaze me as being branded with a Star Wars Label. I guess they are the perfect pick-me-up on the battlefield?

 

Even if you are going to brand everything, can’t you at least use characters that might have a faint hope of eventually using your product? What use do robots have for bottled water, except maybe to clean themselves off with? As for Vader and the apples…the only use he would have for them is to use the force to juggle them or maybe bean someone?

 

This meme showed up on my Facebook feed this morning and I thought it was very appropriate.
