Star Wars Popsicles – Saber-Lickin’ Good!

This popsicle kit from ThinkGeek will be a hit with Star Wars Fans.  The kit includes 4 lightsaber hilts (2 Luke, 2 Vader), a molding tray, and recipes so you can freeze your own “lightsabers” from most any beverage.  The hilts have LEDs inside to illuminate the blade; each hilt uses 3 button cell batteries, which are included.  The hilts are 5″ long X 1″ in diameter; the popsicle blades are about 6.5″ long.  Recipes include flavors like “Chewbapple,” “Ponda Berry,” “C-3POrange,” and Admiral Ackbar’s favorite: “It’s a Grap(e)!”  The Star Wars Lightsaber Popsicle Kit is $34.99.

Note:  I apparently got fooled by ThinkGeek’s April Fool’s joke this year.  I’m very sorry.  I don’t do April Fool’s jokes, and I guess I’m just gullible.  I apologize – I just thought it looked really cool.

    four days late for the April Fool.

    And the Loof Lirpa in the URL didn’t give this away as their annual silliness? I can see them trying to get someone to make licensed PopSabers, though. They got the Tauntaun sleeping bag, after all.

    The idea is pretty cool. I’m sure Thinkgeek will make it happen!

    I really don’t see why this is not a real product.

    No worries, Janet. You may just turn out to be well ahead of the curve.

    A previous year’s April Fool’s product was the Star Wars Tauntaun sleeping bag. It turned out that there was enough demand for them, and ThinkGeek eventually turned it into a real product.

    I wouldn’t be terribly surprised if the lightsaber popsicle kit follows the same approximate trajectory. :)

    Nowadays April fool jokes mostly seem more probable as suggestions in tech company board meetings.

    Thanks guys, for not giving me a hard time for being so gullible. I’m not even much of a Star Wars fan, but I was ready to order one of these things. Who doesn’t want a popsicle that lights up?

    Good news, if you click to buy it and get the joke you can vote to have them make them. I already voted for them so give it a try.

    This is going to be a RainyDay DIY project for sure!!!!

    They brought the Life Soundtrack t-shirt to life as well, and that also started out as a joke. There’s always hope. If they got licensing for the Tauntaun bag, then they should be able to do the same for this.
