Baby Yoda Grogu is a hungry little fucker, its ravenous hunger overriding any concern over whether its appetite is inadvertently perpetuating genocide. Earlier this season, everyone’s favorite pair of pointy ears gobbled up an altogether different snack in a pack of blue macarons, the likes of which resurfaced in liquid form after a particularly bumpy space chase. The suits at Williams Sonoma didn’t waste any time slapping a $50 price tag on what they’re calling Nevarro Nummies, but, knowing full well that that’s a stupid name for Baby Yoda Cookies™, Mandalorian creator Jon Favreau and Binging With Babish’s Andrew Rea have teamed up to promote a much cheaper homemade version.

Sure, little fancy lads might turn their nose up at them, but they’ve got a big lollipop so who cares.
