We always knew chicken noodle soup was missing something.

Turns out, the missing piece was Star Wars. Campbell’s has just released a series of limited-edition Star Wars soups packed with noodles cut into the shapes of Stormtroopers, Darth Vader, R2-D2 and C3PO.

The new soups are bringing us way, way back — watching Star Wars and eating chicken noodle soup were two of our favorite parts of childhood, aside from not having responsibilities or an understanding of injustice.

The limited-edition cans also come in SpaghettiO’s form, with tomato and cheese sauce and noodles shaped like Star Wars characters. (The college student inside of us is screaming with excitement.)

This may be over the top, but hear us out: We’d love to pair these soups with the Star Wars–themed lunches that LunchBox Dad whipped up back in May.

Too much Star Wars? Impossible. (That reminds us. We still need to buy tickets to this Star Wars–themed cruise.)

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.
