Take your taste buds on an adventure with all new Astronaut Ice Cream!

This official NASA approved Ice Cream is the perfect light snack for taking into orbit, just like a real life astronaut!

It's completely freeze dried which means that most of the water has been removed, ready for eating straight from the pack!

There's no refrigeration needed, and if you don't finish it in one sitting, the package is easily resealable.

Tantalise your taste buds as the dry crunchy textured slice melts in your mouth, taking on the rich creamy flavour of vanilla!

It tastes delicious, it's light enough to take on long trips, and it won't drip all down your space suit!

Is it real ice cream?
Yes, each Astronaut Ice Cream pack contains a rectangle slice of freeze-dried, edible vanilla ice cream and comes in a resealable pack.

What does it taste like?
It's dry, crunchy and has the same texture as the centre of a Malteser. It melts when you pop it in your mouth, like honeycomb!

Is this really Astronaut Food?
Sorry... Astronauts don't actually eat freeze dried ice-cream in space. It would float off everywhere as they crunched into the yummyness!

Please note: Contains milk, may contain traces of peanuts, soy, gluten and tree nuts. If you are allergic to these things do not eat this.

By: Georgie on 7 September 2019
Novelty is great! It does taste like vanilla ice cream, although at the same time very different being that it is freeze-dried. Would be great for astronaut themed parties!

By: Nicola on 5 September 2018
I bought the astronaut ice cream for a space themed cub camp and they were amazed at how something solid could taste so much like ice cream! Great novelty value

Blast off for fun!

By: Archer on 9 July 2018
To say that my kids were excited would be an understatement - they loved this - they talked about it heaps - and really enjoyed eating it. We bought three and so their was lots of discussion about it - “when can we have the next one”. Only critique was the cost - but was worth it for the excitement for the little ones.

By: Kasey on 9 December 2013
Thanks Cool Things for prompt service and delivery. I think the Astronaut Ice Cream will make an excellent Kris Kringle and I'm hoping that I can try a piece too!! Great website for sourcing a gift with a difference. :)

Thank you Coolthings for such

By: Trish S on 21 August 2009
Thank you Coolthings for such great service and the very prompt delivery of this product. It certainly was a hit with my Year 3 class. They were so excited eating their astronaut icecream and have not stopped talking about it since. There certainly was no problem with litter, as they took their packages home as a souvenir.

I am a teacher and purchased

By: Erin Q on 17 August 2009
I am a teacher and purchased the ice cream for my students to taste as part of our unit of work on space and they loved it! It was great fun learning about the food astronauts eat and then the novelty of having some to try was enormous. The service was quick, thorough and easy to organise. The goods arrived quicker than I thought and the payment was easy. I wouldn't hesitate to buy something from this website again. Thank you

By: Catharine M on 21 July 2009
I am a food technologist who takes a kindergarten class for a regular session on food science and cooking. The kids had a space day where they dressed up as astronauts, stars and planets. They discussed the types of food that can be taken into space and tasted some astronaut ice cream. It was a big hit and introduced the kids to dehydration as a means of food preservation! Thank You - Great product.

Yum, my kids love this stuff!

By: Kylie M on 17 July 2009
Yum, my kids love this stuff! Has a Malteser texture, delicious!

Was quite surprised how much

By: Justin G on 23 May 2009
Was quite surprised how much it tasted like ice cream, texture was very interesting. My niece and nephew loved it, will definitely be purchasing more soon.

The kids loved the astronaut

By: Maria G on 23 May 2009
The kids loved the astronaut ice cream and I was especially impressed with Cool Things - their efficiency and professional service was much appreciated! Maria

This stuff is really great,

By: Jake B on 15 May 2009
This stuff is really great, an almost sensual experience for both your taste buds and tongue. It legitimately gets a creamy texture after it comes in contact with your saliva. The different flavours are very easy to pick as well. Only thing is the serving size is tiny, so if I were you I'd buy two. P.S - Coolthings.com.au DID NOT ask me to put that in, its just a recommendation from me to you!

It was really nice, tasted

By: Trent B on 13 March 2009
It was really nice, tasted exactly like ice cream. The product size was a little small though, I was expecting something larger...was only about the size of your palm. Still, had a lot of fun and my friends loved it

This stuff is really cool;

By: Brian W on 8 January 2009
This stuff is really cool; kids love it, even before they try it - not to mention the odd grown-up!

I have great memories of

By: Nicola M on 24 October 2008
I have great memories of eating delicious space food as a child at the Smithsonian Museum in Washington, DC, and have never been able to find astronaut ice-cream since. That is, until I came across Coolthings! I was so happy to find them, I immediately ordered three. My partner has now developed a taste for astronaut food also, so it's probably time to order more... I was pleasantly surprised to see how efficient the site is, how good the communication was, and how quickly it was delivered too! I'll definitely be ordering more in future.

Absolutely fascinating

A very tasty unique idea to give to friends something to enjoy in all weather.

This is a fantastic gift idea. My son is also using it to hand out during his "Space" project.

This stuff is crazy!! Its kinda like a crunchy bar in the way it melts in your mouth, but icecream flavour! mmmmmmmmmmm

By: Kristelle H on 27 June 2005
This makes a great gift!! I have been giving them instead of chocolates and people really appreciate the uniqueness - but buy one to try for yourself as well, they really are a delicious eating experience (there is something surreal about dry, chunky ice cream)
