Astronaut Food

As we have been studying space, we purchased some Astronaut Food and tried it out. The mint chip even came with a book about the history of space food. Though out of date, published in 1988, it is full of interesting information.
Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream... yummy!
Ice Cream Sandwich... not so much.

Beef Stew & Corn... not too bad, except for the potatoes which were like marshmallows in Jello.

Fry Electronics has an educational toy section and they were there. I have seen them at some children's museums before too.

I found this on Amazon

I recall a few years ago when I was training for my 1st marathon, the kiddos were in the jogger and I gave them astronaut ice cream as a thank you for going on my long run with me. It is the greatest stuff as it doesn't melt and get all sticky! :)
