Kids have been using snack sticks as miniature swords forever, but these new pastel green, pink and purple Pocky aren’t just swords. Oh no, they’re lightsabers.

Part of a bigger partnership between Glico and Lucasfilm – which also includes Star Wars-themed instant rice and curry packets, for some reason – the new Giant 8” Lightsaber Pocky come in three unique flavors specifically modeled after Yoda, Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker’s swords. In case you couldn’t tell, that means the “Green Tea” one is the little green guy’s, the “Grape” one is Luke’s and the “Strawberry” one belongs to the Sith Lord himself. It’s not clear why they couldn’t have just used the proper colorings for the latter two, but it must take one menacing bad guy to still look threatening while waving around a tiny pink wand — Voom, voom.
