May the frozen dessert be with you.

Popular ice cream shop Ample Hills Creamery is offering special edition "Star Wars" flavors in collectible containers.

The flavors allow fans of the sci-fi epic to indulge both their inner Darth Vader and latent Luke Skywalker.

One flavor, The Dark Side, "is an ultra-dark chocolate ice cream with espresso fudge brownies, cocoa crispies, and white chocolate pearls (to represent the light still hiding in the dark, waiting to burst through)," according to a description on the Ample Hills website.

The other, The Light Side, is "a bright marshmallow ice cream with homemade crispie clusters, as well as a smattering of handmade cocoa crispies (to represent the dark side still lurking within the light)."

The flavors were "conceived in collaboration with Disney Consumer Products" and they're only available for purchase online in a $36 four-pack set.

You can have the ice cream shipped to you (via Millennium Falcon?) or you can pick up your order at Ample Hills' Gowanus location at 305 Nevins St. (at Union Street).

The $9 per pint set comes in "collectible containers with original artwork," according to the shop's website.

So far there's no clear winner between The Dark Side and The Light Side, because the flavors haven't shipped yet, said Ample Hills Creamery owner Jackie Cuscuna.

"I'm kind of in love with The Dark Side," Cuscuna said. "I'm excited to hear which is the favorite."
