Space Food Sticks!

by VM Brasseur on January 29th, 2008

Every once in a while I find myself thinking something like, “Remember those weird food stick things we used to get when we were kids? What in the hell were those things? Man, those were neat.”

Thanks to Serious Eats this mystery is now solved! These were Space Food Sticks! Brilliant!

Even more brilliant than that is the fact that this marvelous foodstuff is now once again available for purchase! That’s right, you too can eat like a vintage 1970’s astronaut. Quick poll:

    Is this totally awesome? (circle one)

    YES YES

That’s right, it is awesome! So awesome, in fact, that I had no choice but to order myself a mixed case of Space Food Sticks. Twelve sticks each of chocolate and peanut butter.

Mmm…stick-y goodness… I’m looking forward to my order arriving. Even if the sticks themselves suck and taste like slightly sweetened sawdust this is still going to be great.

    oh man, I remember those things! My brothers and I used to fight like cats and dogs over them. I’m pretty sure they came like 10 to a box, which meant for 3 kids there was always one extra. I, being more astronaut-like that either of them, always thought I should get the extra – but my impeccable logic did not always sway the ones who controlled distribution of the space food (i.e., mom & dad)

  4. If my sticks arrive before I fly out to Philly next week I’ll bring you one. Which do you want: chocolate or peanut butter? Heck, you could probably even have one of each.
