Pass the Tang

I’ve got to wash down some of these brand-spanking-new Space Food Sticks.

That’s right, kids, they’re back, so you can keep your crunchy granola sweets and such.

    I don’t remember the foodsticks, but we did get some of the unfrozen styrofoam-textured ice cream in ’75 when our family toured NASA in Florida.

    I do remember the food sticks. I also remember the TV commercial where the astronaut is eating one with his helmet on and faceplate down — sticking the morsel through a convenient round hole in the faceplate.

    I don’t imagine he was going to go right out for a space-jog with that thing…

    OMG, that’s a blast from the past. Real simulated food product just like the astronauts ate! I remember how cool we thought we were when we ate them in the late 60’s and early 70’s.
