    I would post links proving it was actually enjoyed by astronauts on space missions, but all of the links I have found so far blow that theory into thin air, so I'll not even mention them.

    Never heard of it, never had it.

    I've heard of freeze-dried astronaut food, but didn't know it was available to the public.

    I've seen it for sale at the Cosmosphere (space-themed museum in Hutchinson, Kansas).

    Have you ever left a used ice-cream bowl out and let the ice-cream dry on the spoon, then later eat off the crust? It's like that but fluffier.

    I love freeze dried corn and peas. I get them to add to my ramen for lunch, but I can also eat them straight out of the can.

    I use my dehydrator a lot. Just made beef jerky yesterday. But home freeze dryers are freaking expensive, starting around 2K.

    so no home made freeze dried ice cream making for me.

    They have it over in both the museum in Indianapolis, Indiana, and the one over in Louisville, Kentucky.

    Yeah, it's kinda deceptive, cause it certainly implies the astronauts ate it, or that it was taken into outer space. I can't find any proof of that at all.

    That's what the people in the museum were saying it actually was, and I believe our teachers did too. I think it was even on the package stating "Try ice cream the way astronauts eat it!".

    Since it can easily be crushed to powder, I wouldn't want to risk it in space.
