If you've ever had freeze dried ice cream before, this is the stuff. The size of each treat isn't very large, but definitely enough to enjoy. Each bar is individually wrapped. It is also lots of fun to give to anyone who hasn't had it before.

If you don't know what freeze dried ice cream is, it is pretty straight forward. All of the water is removed from normal ice cream in a special way. First the ice cream is kept frozen while a vacuum is applied to it. The vacuum causes water to slowly sublimate and vaporize. The vaporized water is eventually all sucked out and you are left with a chunk of ice cream that has everything in it but water. Note, it doesn't melt. The process brings water straight from the solid to gas. This technique is used for lots of foods because it makes the food last forever -- without water most bacteria and molds simply can't grow. If you are a hippie, feel safe. The process doesn't use any crazy chemical science that'll kill your mojo.

I don't know how many people have had "Astronaut Ice Cream" but it is sooo good. Seriously, it is something you have to try. I've had it since I was a little girl because I grew up in TX where NASA was close by. It is really convenient to feed to kids in particular because there is no mess to clean up afterwards. The best thing about the ice cream is that it really packs more flavor than you would expect and when it melts in your mouth you'll be glad you tried it.

my niece teaches underprivileged kids in florida --- she had a science lesson and i sent her 3 boxes of this stuff --- most of the kids would never in their lives have had a chance to taste this stuff --- so for the price it was a good deal to share something that these kids would never have had...

I bought this out of curiosity, after hearing the buzz about it on the internet. I took my chances and bought 10 packages of these.
They are fantastic! It came in a box, with 10 individual wrapped packages.
These freeze dried ice creams are broken into pieces (Stop blaming packaging!) for a reason, so they are more easier to bite into, and because they crumble after being freeze dried at -40 degrees!
I love these, and I am definitely planning to buy more, just in different flavors (this flavor is great, I just don't like vanilla. Strawberry is very enjoyable). Very light and compact, and you can bring it with you in a bag or a purse when you're craving ice cream but it's raining, or whatever.
Highly recommended! Cheers, Amazon.

My son loved sharing this with his class for show and tell. Two bags was enough for his entire class of 20 to sample. They all thought it was great! Ice cream that isn't cold is a hit in the winter months up north. As an adult, I would suggest sucking on it, do not chew. It gets stuck in your teeth and kind of reminds me of the caramelized remnants on the ice cream lid. Not recommended for culinary connoisseurs. Made my children feel closer to the astronauts though!

I got this for my husband who is proudly serving our country in the United States Army. He LOVED it (and so did some of his unit.) It was just something fun to send him to break the often tense world of a soldier. I can't personally account for the taste but he and the guys said it tasted just like the real deal. I will probably send him more at a later date.

I have just seen the same astronaut ice cream at a gift shop for almost 3 times as much.

I try and keep some all the times, however, since I am an elder on a fixed income can't always afford to order it. I save up just to order. It's absolutely one of my favorite delicacies!! Just wish it wasn't as expensive as it is. (nevertheless I will continue to order when I can) treat yourself with this ice cream when you can. I especially love the neopolitan.

Yummy. We gobbled it right up. Only issue is the unit price. The portions are so small, yet it's so expensive. Is this stuff really that expensive to make? That it's like $12 a lb.

if you don't mind the price, this stuff is delicious. It is hard to imagine how something that has the texture of light weight chalk could taste so creamy and delicious but it really does. I just wish it were cheaper. I bought a large pack as a treat but it is much too pricey to make a regular habit. Too bad.
