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 foil package. Originally developed for the early Apollo Space missions, food is frozen to -40 degrees C and then vacuum dried and placed in a special foil pouch.

The shelf life is 3 years, so there is not much worry about it expiring. 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.

Note: Due to this product's fragility, it's very likely that it will arrive in bite size pieces/chunks.
