NASA Freeze Dried Astronaut Ice Cream set (2) Sandwiches
Eat real astronaut food with NASA Freeze Dried Astronaut Ice Cream SandwichOriginally developed for the early Apollo Space missions, a real ice cream sandwich is frozen to -40 degrees and then vacuum dried and placed in a special foil pouch. Freeze drying removes water from the ice cream by lowering the air pressure to a point where ice shifts from a solid to a gas. How do they do it? The ice cream is placed in a vacuum chamber and frozen until the water crystallizes. The air pressure is lowered, creating a partial vacuum, forcing air out of the chamber; next heat is applied, vaporizing the ice; finally a freezing coil traps the vaporized water. This process continues for hours, resulting in a freeze-dried neapolitan ice cream sandwich slice. When you put it on your tongue, it reconstitutes into creamy yummy tasting ice cream. Dehydrated ice cream product will arrive in bite size pieces/chunks. Contains dairy and gluten. Each 1 oz. 8 1/2" x 4 3/4" x 1" package is perfect for birthday party favors, stocking stuffers and more. (#9A323) A ComputerGear exclusive. Item in stock unless noted above.
