Vintage Star Wars Peach Melba Yogurt Cup Featuring Jabba the Hutt from Dairy Time UK

April 23, 2012

I’ve wanted one of these ever since I first read about it in one of my Star Wars collectible guides. Dairy Time in the UK put out a number of flavors of Star Wars-themed yogurts, each corresponding to a different character, including Jabba, Admiral Ackbar, and Yoda. (You can see a photo of what I believe is the entire lineup in this thread on Rebelscum.) Jabba’s flavor was “Peach Melba.” Not sure how they arrived at that choice, although I imagine its color more or less matched the illustration of Jabba. I like that it’s “low fat” — maybe Jabba is watching his girlish figure. 😀

On the front of the cup you can see the line drawing of Jabba that adorns so many pieces of vintage merchandise, and on the back is another picture with Jabba, Leia and Bib Fortuna. It’s funny in a way, but items like this are often the hardest to track down, even if they aren’t really all that valuable. Most people tossed their yogurt cups in the trash when they were done, so there is a limited number of these left. There’s also not much in the way of Jabba-themed foods. About the only thing I can think of at the moment are the vintage cookies from Pepperidge Farm.
