Light or dark? That’s a question every Star Wars fan has grappled with. But soon we won’t have a choice, because the decision will be made for us. Don’t worry, you won’t be Force-d to live as a Jedi or a Sith no matter which side you end up with. You’ll be getting a delicious, iconic treat celebrating your favorite sci-fi franchise either way. Oreo and Lucasfilm have partnered on a first-ever Star Wars cookie collaboration. Hungry admirers just won’t know if they got a light side or dark side special edition pack until they open them.

The newly announced Special Edition Star Wars OREO Cookies will be sold in two different varieties. Each will come in identical outer packaging that celebrates the original character poster artwork hand-painted by Greg Hildebrandt in 1977. But what snackers won’t know until they open them is whether they cookies that represent the light side or the dark side of the Force.

Those who get a light side pack will find cookies made with a blue creme. Those who get the dark side version will bite into a red creme. Each color creme also comes “infused with ‘kyber’ sugar crystals inspired by the crystals found in a lightsaber.”

The outside of the cookies will also have something for fans to enjoy. Both light and dark side alike come with 10 embossed characters on the cookies. Those iconic figures represent their respective side of the Force. You can see which 20 Star Wars characters made the cut in this official image.


Overall pretty great, but are we sure that’s not Count Dooku’s brother? ….Half-brother?

You can pre-order your Star Wars OREO Cookie Packs starting on May 30 at They’ll then start hitting stores nationwide starting on June 10. But don’t delay. They’ll only be available only “for a limited time, while supplies last.” After that you’ll either have to find them on a secondary market or steal them. If you choose the latter, you don’t need a random box of cookies to know you’re a member of the dark side.
