Astronaut Ice CreamRated 5/5 based on 22 reviews.
Have it for lunch or eat it the next time you go into orbit, just like a real NASA astronaut!
This cool snack is real ice-cream that has been freeze-dried ready for eating straight from the pack. No water or refrigeration necessary! It even comes with a Certified Space Technology Insignia on the packaging to indicate that it is from the same range as other freeze-dried food items used on NASA missions today!
It comes complete with three flavours (chocolate, vanilla and strawberry) to tantalise your taste buds.
Is it real ice cream?
Yes, each official Astronaut Ice Cream pack contains a slice of freeze-dried, edible Neapolitan ice cream.
What does it taste like?
Because it's been freeze-dried (all the moisture has been sucked out of it), it is dry, crunchy and has the same texture as the inside of a Malteser. However, once you place it in your mouth it will start to dissolve.

Blast off for dessert!By: Nicola on 5 September 2018I 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 2018To 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.

Thank you Coolthings for suchBy: Trish S on 21 August 2009Thank 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 purchasedBy: Erin Q on 17 August 2009I 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
I am a food technologist whoBy: Catharine M on 21 July 2009I 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.
