Product Description

Stardate 02072007, Captains log: for a desert that's out of this world its time you enjoyed your ice cream the way astronauts do. These packs of ice cream and other freeze-dried food items have been onboard space missions since the early Mercury missions and they continue to be used on NASA missions today!

The Neapolitan ice cream (chocolate, vanilla and strawberry) is freeze dried removing water by lowering the air pressure to a point where ice shifts from a solid to a gas. The ice cream is placed in a vacuum chamber and frozen until the water crystaliszes. The air pressure is lowered, creating a vacuum, forcing air out of the chamber; next heat is applied, vaporising the ice; finally a freezing coil traps the vaporised water. This process continues for hours, giving you the perfect space food!

Milkfat & non milkfat, corn syrup, sugar, whey, cocoa, guar gum, red beet juice and vegetable colour - produced in a factory that also processes peanuts, milk, soy, wheat, gluten, egg and tree nut ingredients.

Tasty! - Review by Jamie

This stuff is nothing like real ice cream, but it sure tastes nice none the less!

Its more like nougat than ice cream but comes in 3 different flavours and all 3 taste nice.

A great novelty present, especially for kids who are fascinated by space!
