The Star Wars film juggernaut has always been a source of promotional products, coveted by children and hoarded collectors. Now, with the release of the franchise's latest installment, The Force Awakens, the branding push extends well beyond miniature robots and Lego speeders and into the grocery store. Here, now, are the most unnecessary Star War items to hit the food and beverage world this year.

11. Flavored Water

If you're thinking these chicken nuggets come in the shape of your favorite character from a galaxy far, far away, think again. However, the labeling is all about getting your Star Wars dollars.

7. Vitamin Gummies

1.5% milk appears to be the only choice available in a Star Wars theme.

As if skewered by a saucy red lightsaber, these unappetizing chicken dogs come stuffed with ketchup.

3. Super Sweet Canned Corn

BB-8 may make this can slightly more adorable, but it's still a container of corn.

2. Chicken Cold Cuts

Unless this meat was sliced by a jedi, Star Wars has has no business being on its packaging.

1. Foie Gras
