Astronaut Ice Cream was invented for NASA’s Mercury Missions. Enjoy this delicious treat just like the astronauts. These freeze-dried Vanilla Ice Cream Sandwiches are real ice cream! Astronaut Foods takes the ice cream you know and love, and with the power of freeze-drying create a yummy new snack. Frozen in time, yet not frozen in temperature. When you remove the water from the ice cream, what do you have? A delicious, crunchy, yet creamy sweetness that melts in your mouth, sandwiched between two chocolatey wafer cookies.
