Haroun bread was a type of light brown-colored bread. In 40 BBY, the human pilot Rahara Wick emerged from the mess of the Gozanti-class freighter Meryx, where she had been snacking, with a haroun bread bun in her hand while waiting to be signalled for pick up by the Jedi Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi.
When Jinn, Queen Padmé Amidala, and the Gungan Jar Jar Binks took shelter from a sandstorm and ate dinner in the slave Shmi Skywalker's house in the city of Mos Espa on the planet Tatooine in 32 BBY, a bowl containing a piece of haroun bread, two balls of ahrisa, and a lamta sat on the house's kitchen counter. In around 9 ABY, a desert world bar where the bounty hunters Boba Fett and Din Djarin met with Mandalorians Bo-Katan Kryze and Koska Reeves had haroun bread costing 5.78 listed on its menu.
