Enjoy your ice cream just like the astronauts do - the freeze-dried way! The Astronaut Ice Cream Sandwich and other freeze-dried food items have been aboard space missions since the early days of Mercury Missions. They continue to be used on NASA missions today.
How Does the Astronaut Ice Cream Sandwich Look and Taste?
Freeze-drying is like suspended animation because it keeps the ice cream sandwich totally intact, but without the water. As you eat the sandwich, your mouth rehydrates the ice cream, restoring it to its original state. Amazingly, the ice cream sandwich looks and tastes just like the original.
Freeze-dried ice cream sandwiches can be stored for many years without refrigeration as long as you keep them in an airtight, sealed container.
