I was not sure if this topic would be better suited for the “snacks and candy” forum, but here goes: Has anyone here ever tried freeze dried or “astronaut ice cream” ?

I have, and I love it. It is really more of a candy, I used to buy it in Florida years ago. Here is a link to buy some if anyone is interested: http://explore4fun.com/asic.html

I plan to order some myself.

I remember it well, freeze dried neopolitan ice cream. Delicious.
You can buy it in space museums, space/sky/planet shops.

The freeze dried ice cream is simply eaten like a candy bar right from the bag. It is really good.

You can get the ice cream sandwiches from museums and stuff like that as well. I don't eat them often, but they haven't changed since the 80's when I was in highschool and got them.
