Product Description

Freeze-Dried, Ready-to-Eat, Strawberries Enjoy your Strawberries just as the Astronauts do - the freeze-dried way! Astronaut Strawberries®, as well as other freeze-dried food items, have been aboard space missions since the early Mercury Missions. They continue to be used on NASA missions today. How does it Look and Taste? Freeze-drying is like suspended animation because it keeps the strawberries totally intact, but without the water. As you eat the fruits, your mouth rehydrates the strawberries, restoring it to its original state. Freeze-dried strawberries can be stored for many years without refrigeration as long as you keep them in an airtight, sealed container. Net Weight 14g, Made in the USA Ingredients: Strawberries - Produced in a facility that also processes peanuts, milk, soy, wheat, gluten, egg and tree nut ingredients. All our Astronaut Foods have the Certified Space Technology insigna on the packaging to indicate that they are the same range as used in space by NASA Astronauts. The brand Astronaut Foods was created in 1975 in conjunction with the National Air and Space Museum in the USA to provide authentic foods that had been in space to their museums customers.

These were bought for a lesson at school on space along with some other flavours so pupils could see and taste what astronauts eat. They look like shrivelled up dry strawberries but when you put them in your mouth turn back into a normal strawberry! Strange sensation and the kids will remember this lesson for a long time.

The only real reason to have this is the freeze-dried/ spaceman aspect.
They taste a bit better than the ice-cream but it's still taking a really nice flavour, diluting it and then creating a horrible texture to put it in.
If you're looking for space food then I've seen these in Hawkins Bazaar cheaper (and without postage). However, if it's simply to satisfy a need to know what freeze-dried Strawberries taste like then, take it from me, it's not worth it. They're not disgusting but far from nice.

This was good but strawberries don't seem to freeze dry as well (in my opinion) as raspberries. Fun to try, though.

Space Food is a great idea, I bought these for my son when he was learning about space, he took them into school and they were a huge success, even the teachers couldnt resist having a try.
Some friends have also bought them now out of curiousity.

Freeze dried strawberries that astronauts eat - wouldnt you want to try them and for a couple of quid its worth getting just because..................

I am surprised by some of the reviews for this item. I have tried freeze dried strawberries before and I loved them,I like their taste and once you have tried one,I find that I can't stop eating them!

This is a GOOD buy even though they cost a big amount of money for what they are, you won't regret buying them to see what they taste like.

I bought this as I have wanted to try it for a while now.

Unfortunately I appear to have just wasted my cash as this really is not for me!

The fruit is bitter and the texture would take too long to get used to.

Bought this as novelty gift for husband. Tasty in their own way. Intense flavor, bit of a soggy texture once they rehydrate in your mouth. All in all, pretty neat and would like to try the ice cream next.
