We headed over to Kat Saka’s Kettle to try out two new popcorn flavors and a very blue muffin at Disneyland today as the “Star Wars” monthlong celebration begins in the park. Grogu (the sipper) joined us.
Kat Saka’s Kettle in Galaxy’s Edge
We opted to try the Surabat Valley Mix, the Niamos Mix with Furikake, and the new Jellyfruit Muffin.
Surabat Valley Mix – $6.99
Sweet Kettle Popcorn
The Surabat Valley Mix is just general kettle corn, as the description states. It’s very lightly coated and we actually wanted it a bit more sweet as it’s weakly flavored compared to your run-of-the-mill kettle corn.
Overall, this is a solid option for those who like kettle corn.
The mix is named after the Surabat River Valley, located near Black Spire Outpost on Batuu. Filled with a trecherous maze of spires, the valley is named after Ariana Surabat, who was the first settler to arrive on Batuu. The spires were rich with the golden lichen, the harvesting of which is controlled by Oga Garra.
Niamos Mix With Furikake – $6.99
Sour Cream and Chive Popcorn
The Niamos Mix was our favorite. We opted for furikake, and that adds a bit of saltiness to set this over the top.
The overall taste reminds us of Sour Cream and Chive Lays potato chips but in the best possible way. The popcorn is fresh, and the flavors make for a terrific salty snack on the go for your travels through Batuu.
The mix is named for Niamos, a planet that debuted first in “Andor.” Cassian Andor settled there after the Aldhani mission to lay low and enjoy the tropical climate.
Furikake is a dry Japanese condiment sprinkled on top of cooked rice, vegetables, fish, or used as an ingredient in onigiri. It is usually made of a mixture of dried fish, sesame seeds, chopped seaweed, sugar, salt, and monosodium glutamate (MSG), but the ingredients listed were slightly different here. There is no MSG listed.
Jellyfruit Muffin – $6.99
Passion Fruit and Buttermilk Muffin with Pineapple and Blackberry Jam
This muffin is new to Kat Saka’s Kettle as well.
We thought this muffin was weird. It is certainly bright and looks like something that could be found in the “Star Wars” universe.
It’s a decent size, but the taste is interesting. At first, it just tastes artificial. It tastes like “blue.”
Jellyfruit is a new introduction to the “Star Wars” canon, having just made a first appearance in “Young Jedi Adventures: Jedi Training,” a childrens’ book that was released today. The book is based on the upcoming “Star Wars: Young Jedi Adventures” series. For more Young Jedi Adventures May the 4th fun, guests can try the Tanoo Swirl Crunchies Cereal Drink at the Milk Stand or take a picture with the photo op at Downtown Disney District.
As we continued to taste this, we noticed notes of blackberry and then, finally, pineapple.
The buttermilk gives it a hefty texture.
The passion fruit flavor just overlays everything with a general fruitiness.
If you like interesting fruit flavors and don’t mind blue food coloring, then give this a go. Otherwise, we would skip this.
