For those who think Baby Yoda is so cute they could just eat it with a spoon — you’re in luck!

Every brand wants in on the annual “Star Wars” Day — even General Mills, which announced the launch of a new, out-of-this-world cereal on Monday. It features the adorable alien from the Disney+ show “The Mandalorian” on the front of the box with the armored title character in the background.

The cereal itself is described as “Sweetened corn puffs with marshmallows,” and the latter are green and vaguely shaped like Yoda’s head.

The new cereal comes months after the animatronic extraterrestrial captured our hearts — and our wallets. Late last year, the character inspired plush dolls, Build-A-Bears, cookies, waffle-makers and certainly a few knockoffs.

The grain company posted a photo of the new packaging on social media, with the ubiquitous caption, “May the 4th Be With You! Coming to a cereal aisle near you later this summer. #maythe4thbewithyou #starwarsday.” Whether the intergalactic grub is limited edition or here to stay has not been confirmed by General Mills.

Season 2 of Jon Favreau’s “The Mandalorian” — with new cast member Rosario Dawson (as Ahsoka Tano) and returning actors Carl Weathers (Karga), Gina Carano (Cara Dune), Pedro Pascal (Mando) and, of course, Baby Yoda — is scheduled to premiere in October on Disney+. A third season also is reportedly already in the works.
