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{.broken_link}! Brilliant!

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

Is this totally awesome? (circle one)</p>


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{.broken_link}. 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.
