"If you've got a taste for somethin' sweet, then you're gonna want to mix up a shaker of Christophsian sugar."
―Strono Tuggs, The Official Black Spire Outpost Cookbook[1]

Christophsian sugar was a caramelized-sugar mix that was inspired by the crystalline forests of[1] the planet[2] Christophsis. The multipurpose sweetener consisted of light brown sugar crystals that could add a hint of citrus flavor and warm cooking spice to many foodstuffs.[1]

The Artiodac chef Strono Tuggs claimed that it was addictive; he wrote that he personally could not resist adding the sugar to popped grains, freshly-toasted mealbread, or a cup of caf.[1] In 34 ABY,[3] he published his cookbook The Official Black Spire Outpost Cookbook that included a recipe for Christophian sugar in which he compared its versatility to his Nerfsteak Seasoning. The book also contained recipes for Moogan Tea and sweet-sand cookies that both used the sugar as a topping.[1]

Behind the scenes[]

In the new Star Wars canon, Christophsian sugar was included as a recipe in the 2019 cookbook Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge: The Official Black Spire Outpost Cookbook, which was written by Marc Sumerak and Chelsea Monroe-Cassel.[1] The out-of-universe recipe uses the caramelization process and is made with the ingredients sugar, water, orange extract, and vanilla extract.[1]

Christophsian sugar originated in the Star Wars Legends continuity, where it was introduced in the 2009 Hyperspace exclusive article "Dining at Dex's," which was written by Gregory Walker.[4]

  3. Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge: The Official Black Spire Outpost Cookbook establishes that the in-universe book was published at the same time as when the First Order was searching for the Resistance base on Batuu. As that search occurs in Galaxy's Edge: Black Spire, which is set in 34 ABY according to the reasoning here, the cookbook must have been published in 34 ABY.
