This is the Original Astronaut Ice Cream sandwich. Chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry ice cream sandwiched between two chocolate wafers, then freeze-dried, just like the astronauts eat! So, what exactly is astronaut ice cream? Itís simple: freeze-dried ice cream is real ice cream! We use the process of lyophilization, commonly known as freeze-drying, to turn the ice cream you know and love into something truly special. Lyophilization removes 98% of the original water content, and the result is a crunchy, creamy sweetness that melts in your mouth. We use the same process to freeze dry fruits, which brings out the sweetness and adds an unexpected crunch to natureís candy. Best of all, the freeze-drying process allows fruit to retain all of its nutrition!
