Astronauts get all the perks. They get cool suits, awesome space vehicles, alien encounters (both romantic and work related), and awesome chow. Nowadays they get some good food, but in the beginnings it was awful – gelatin cubes and toothpaste food. And then Pillsbury decided to kick it up a notch and create Space Food Sticks – a “non-frozen balanced energy snack in rod form containing nutritionally balanced amounts of carbohydrate, fat and protein.” Yum. And then they released it to the public. Yay.
And now we have found a box of space goodies that includes 2 Space Food Sticks (painstakingly reproduced from the original recipe). You’ll also get a bunch of freeze dried goodies and some spacey drink mixes. And you get a neato little fridge magnet which has a reproduction of an actual Space Food Sticks advertisement. Why? Cause retro food is fun (so long as it is not “retro” because it’s been in grandma’s pantry since WWII).
