Now you can eat dessert just like the astronauts!
For ultimate chocolate experience, try some of our Chocolate Chocolate Chip
Ice Cream. Originally developed for the early Apollo Space missions, food is
frozen to -40 degrees and then vacuum dried and placed in a special foil pouch.
This is the same ice cream found at science museums for a fraction of the price!
The shelf life is 3 years, so there is no worry about it expiring.
These products are manufactured by the same company that supplies
freeze-dried foods to NASA for the Space Shuttle missions. Freeze drying removes
water from the ice cream by lowering the air pressure to a point where ice
shifts from a solid to a gas. The ice cream is placed in a vacuum chamber and
frozen until the water crystallizes. The air pressure is lowered, creating a
partial vacuum, forcing air out of the chamber; next heat is applied, vaporizing
the ice; finally a freezing coil traps the vaporized water.
This process continues for hours, resulting in a freeze-dried ice cream
slice. Try our other great flavors of ice cream! Note: You will receive the
chocolate chocolate flavor, not mint or neapolitan as shown in the photo. Note:
Due to the fact this product is fragile and during the shipping process, this
product may arrive in bite size pieces/chunks.
