Astronaut Ice Cream
The ultimate indulgence for real astronauts!
- A strawberry, vanilla and chocolate slice
- No refrigeration necessary, eat from the pack
- Tantalise your taste buds!
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.

Thanks Cool Things for promptBy: Kasey on 9 December 2013Thanks 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 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.
Yum, my kids love this stuff!By: Kylie M on 17 July 2009Yum, my kids love this stuff! Has a Malteser texture, delicious!
Was quite surprised how muchBy: Justin G on 23 May 2009Was 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 astronautBy: Maria G on 23 May 2009The 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 2009This 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, tastedBy: Trent B on 13 March 2009It 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 2009This stuff is really cool; kids love it, even before they try it - not to mention the odd grown-up!
