Neapolitan Astronaut Ice Cream
Sorry, this item is out of stock
Enjoy the most popular Freeze Dried Ice Cream Flavor, Neapolitan! You will receive a chunk of ice cream as shown in the photo with Vanilla, Chocolate Strawberry Ice Cream, all wrapped in one package. Originally developed for the early Apollo Space missions, food is frozen to -40 degrees and then vacuum dried and placed in a special foil pouch. This is the same ice cream found at science museums for a fraction of the price!
These products are manufactured by the same company that supplies freeze-dried foods to NASA for the Space Shuttle missions. 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. 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 ice cream slice. Try our other great flavors of ice cream! . Note: Due to the fact this product is fragile and during the shipping process, this product may arrive in bite size pieces/chunks.
