Now you can eat dessert just like the astronauts!
For a great chocolate taste, enjoy this Ice Cream Sandwich which is two
chocolate wafers with a slab of vanilla ice cream sandwiched in between.
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.

Note: Due to the fact this product is fragile and during the shipping
