About Astronaut Foods

Astronaut Foods is the original source for freeze-dried astronaut ice cream. Our unique snacks have been number one on the planet since 1974.

Freeze-dried foods have been aboard NASA missions since the early Mercury and Apollo Missions. Since then, space food has gone global!

You can find our retro treats in museums, toy shops, amusement parks, and outdoor stores all across North America, Europe, and Asia.

Today, Astronaut Foods are a nostalgia-packed snack that anyone can enjoy, whether you’re out exploring the galaxy, or hanging back here on Earth.#

So, what exactly is astronaut food? It’s simple: freeze-dried ice cream is real ice cream!

We use the process of lyophilisation, commonly known as freeze-drying, to turn the ice cream you know and love into something truly special. Lyophilisation 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 nature’s candy. Best of all, the freeze-drying process allows fruit to retain all of its nutrition!

Since the very beginning, all of our products have been proudly made in the USA.
