"First, I like my quarters kept at least five degrees warmer than the rest of the ship. I only eat energy pudding, so stock up on that."
―Archiban Kimble[src]

Energy pudding was a type of foodstuff that was frequently found in survival and ration packs in dehydrated form.[4] Energy pudding was edible by a wide array of species, including Humans,[2] Chagrians,[3] Ansionians, and Mirialans;[4] however, it was widely considered to lack a pleasant taste. The food, which came in wrapped bars and was brown in color,[1] was available as early as the Cold War between the Galactic Republic and the Sith Empire, and the combat medic Archiban Kimble survived almost entirely on pudding.[2] In 22 BBY,[5] the Jedi Knight Barriss Offee discovered the Ansionian Tooqui raiding her supplies during a mission to the planet Ansion, and the thief tried to threaten her with packs of energy pudding as weapons.[4]

Behind the scenes[]

Energy pudding first appeared in the 2002 novel The Approaching Storm by Alan Dean Foster,[4] and it is mentioned frequently in BioWare's 2011 video game Star Wars: The Old Republic during conversations with Kimble—or Doc, as the companion character for the Jedi Knight class is known in-game.[2] It later appeared as an item in the 2014 mobile game Star Wars: Assault Team.[1]
