If you find your lack of sugar rush disturbing on Star Wars Day (that’s tomorrow — yes, May the 4th be with you, too), Austin’s Cow Tipping Creamery has your rebel bases covered.
The ice cream shop on Lamar Boulevard will offer a “Dark Vader” cone — made with ingredients from the darkest corners of a dietitians’ nightmare. And the “Death Star by Chocolate stacker” will also blow up your diet.
Check out the ingredients — “Black Ash soft serve, made with activated charcoal,” “black velvet cake chunks,” “brown sugar hot fudge” — in this Eater article.

“Star Wars Day” plays off the film’s iconic phrase “May the Force be with you” and has taken off since fans started celebrating in 2011. Disney has officially observed the fan-made holiday since 2013.
These days, there is plenty of Star Wars celebrating to be found: TBS is airing an all-day “Star Wars” movie marathon, you can get a discount on your “Star Wars”-themed pool floats (among other stuff), or you can even have a “Return of the Chedi” burger at a bar in Australia.
