Astronaut Ice Cream

Rated 5/5 based on 19 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.

List of Ingredients:
Milk fat, corn syrup, non-fat milk, strawberry puree, whey, cocoa, stabilised and emulsified by monodiglycerides, guar gum, cellulose gum and carageenan, artificial flavour, red #40 and vegetable annatto colour.

Please note: Contains milk, may contain traces of peanuts, soy, gluten and tree nuts.

Three year expiration date.
Net weight 19g, made in the USA.

Astronaut Ice Cream Reviews

Blast off for fun!

By: 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.

Thank you Coolthings for such

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: 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

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.

This stuff is really great,

By: 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!
