Freeze-dried 1960s astronaut food

Spacefood

As we mentioned last week, the V&A Museum of Childhood is hosting the Space Age: Exploration, Design And Popular Culture exhibition. And where there’s an exhibition, there’s usually merchandise. This one is no exception, with a range of spacey items to browse, including this freeze-dried 1960s astronaut food.

When we say 1960s, we don’t mean it was made then – this food is a reproduction of food developed for the early Apollo missions. There’s a choice of space treats, including freeze-dried ice cream (in three flavours), freeze-dried ice cream sandwich (which adds chocolate to the mix) and freeze-dried strawberries – all frozen, then dried and sealed in foil pouches to eat when you like or indeed, where you like.

Available from the V&A Shop, you can pick a pouch of your choice up between £3 and £4.
