Austin is experiencing Star Wars mania, with Alamo Drafthouse’s special menu for the release of The Force Awakens next week. Two city bakeries are getting in on the action, too. First, customers can order the adorable GingerWookiees from both locations of Sugar Mama’s Bakeshop. The furry gingerbread cookies are available for $1.95 each until the end of the month.

Then there is Voodoo Doughnut’s Star Wars doughnut centerpiece, featuring droids R2-D2 and newcomer BB-8. While the giant sweet isn’t technically for sale, a rep said they wouldn’t turn down an offer. Have you seen any other Star Wars-themed menu items around Austin? Let us know in the comments or over the tipline.
