- "If you can avoid gettin' all tangled up in a saava's vines, you'll find yourself with a sweet snack that everyone will savor. And if you can't? Well, at least the saava gets to eat…"
- ―Strono Tuggs, The Life Day Cookbook
Saava Snacks were a type of sweet snack food made from the fruit of the saava plant native to the planet Kashyyyk. The saava was a parasitic carnivore, so harvesting its fruit in order to make the snack could be extremely dangerous. The Artiodac chef Strono Tuggs published a recipe for Saava Snacks in his second cookbook, The Life Day Cookbook, at some point after he published his first cookbook in 34 ABY. Tuggs claimed that everyone would savor the snack and that the fruit was so delectable that it was almost worth the risk of confronting a saava.
Behind the scenes
Saava Snacks were created as a recipe for the 2021 cookbook Star Wars: The Life Day Cookbook, which was written by Jenn Fujikawa and Marc Sumerak. The ingredients for the out-of-universe recipe are figs, extra virgin olive oil, salt, black pepper, feta cheese, chopped toasted pecans, and honey.

Notes and references
- Star Wars: The Life Day Cookbook
- 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.
