Are there Baby Ruths on Dagobah?

Are there Baby Ruths on Dagobah? Does anybody know what the prop guys used for Luke Skywalker's rations during his first dinner with Yoda? I remember it being this brown cylindrical chewy/crunchy thing. And if there is a star wars term for the Rebellion rations, that would be nice to know as well.

I always thought it looked like a dried sausage.

I always thought it was a Twix. And didn't they refer to these as "food sticks"?

For some reason I remember there being a name for this in the old Stars Wars Roleplaying Game I played as a youth. Might be a place to start looking...

K-18 rations? Space Food Sticks?

I don't see an explicit name for it anywhere, but if you are looking for this name for some other purpose, you might find it helpful to consult Wookieepedia.

I just assumed it was some sort of jerky/cured meat.

Yeah! It does sort of look like what Carl finds in the pool in Caddyshack. And Princess Leia also shared some kind of biscuit with Wicket in Jedi. TheForce.Net's encyclopedia suggests it could be Gleb Rations, though Ready Rations are also a possibility, or it might be pre-packaged Gornt jerky, or even NSFS Food Blocks. There's also apparently some unappetizing thing called foodboard.

How you get so big eating food of this kind?

Wicket and gravy and biscuits. I could eat 'em all night long.
