It’s no secret that Mark Hamill loves to use social media to have fun, raise awareness for causes he stands for, and connect with fans from across the globe. Although, he’s never one to mince words when it comes to his “Star Wars” history either, dishing out behind-the-scenes secrets now and again. In this case, a fan recently asked him over Twitter what the taste difference was between the blue and green milk, and he gave an informative analysis of the two.
“#StarWars-Blue was ‘long-life milk’ meant for camping trips that needed no refrigeration: warm, sweet & oily,” Hamill wrote, accompanied by a sick face and thumb down emoji with “#Yuck.” On the subject of the second contender, he said “#LastJedi-Green ‘milk’ was non-dairy coconut water dyed that color in post-production: cool, tasty & refreshing,” with a happy face and thumb up emoji alongside “#Yum.” Winner: green milk.
If you ever care to compare the two yourself, the Milk Stand at Disney’s Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge theme park sells both of them. They’re each comprised of a plant-based coconut and rice milk blend with added sweeteners, and can be served in an alcoholic form as well — avoiding the warmth and oily texture Mark Hamill sites as making the original blue milk nigh undrinkable. Cheers!
