This article is about the snack food. You may be looking for Adder moss chips.

Moss chips were a crispy snack edible by Humans.[1] During the final years of the Galactic Republic, they were popular in the Core Worlds region of the galaxy.[2] Around 21 BBY,[3] moss chips were eaten by clone commando Niner Skirata while he was visiting the Human Republic agent Besany Wennen on the planet Coruscant.[1]

Behind the scenes[]

Moss chips first appeared in the 2007 novel Republic Commando: True Colors, written by Karen Traviss as part of the Star Wars: Republic Commando novel series. At one point in the novel, it is stated that the chips were served on a plate; however, a separate sentence maintains that they were served in a bowl.[1] This article avoids assuming which dish they were served in.

  2. The Complete Star Wars Encyclopedia, Vol. II, p. 335 ("moss chips")
  3. The section of Republic Commando: True Colors where moss chips appear takes place 548 days after the First Battle of Geonosis. As The New Essential Chronology dates that battle to 22 BBY, and Star Wars: The Roleplaying Game, Second Edition, Revised and Expanded establishes that one year contained 368 days, the section must take place around 21 BBY.
