Our fascinating Astronaut Neapolitan Ice Cream Sandwich is a tasty snack that anyone can enjoy, whether you’re out exploring the galaxy or hanging back here on Earth!
Frozen in time, yet not frozen in temperature, it takes the ice cream you know and love, and turns it into a yummy retro treat! It's manufactured by the same company that supplies freeze-dried foods to NASA for the Space Shuttle missions!
Q: How in the world is Astronaut Ice Cream® made?
A: They use REAL ice cream that is placed into a vacuum chamber and frozen to 60 degrees BELOW zero. This causes the water from the ice cream to turn into ice. Next, the pressure is lowered in the chamber and enough heat is slowly added to allow the ice to change directly from solid to vapor without passing through a liquid phase. This process continues for hours, resulting in a perfect freeze-dried ice cream.
All that's left behind is a delicious, crunchy, yet creamy sweetness that melts in your mouth, sandwiched between two chocolate wafer cookies! Bring it along on your next hiking or camping trip!
