Good dessert for food storage
My family was split about 50-50 on the Neopolitan ice cream and the Raspberry Crumble. While neither are as good as a homemade or store bought desserts, they both offer a treat with a long shelf life in an emergency situation. I would definitely keep these 2 items in a 72-hour kit to make the best of a bad situation. The Ready Store's recent article on comfort food in an emergency was very good. While desserts may not seem like an "essential" item, they can be more important than many of us think.
Quite delicious and a great comfort food.
Great comfort food
My kids enjoyed the novelty of these when they were young. Now they eat them as a sweet treat.
I first tried these in my youth, I called it "astronaut ice cream." It was delicious then and it's delicious now! Great flavor and cheers you up while camping or in an emergency.
It's a great choice for an emergency situation.
My husbands all time favorite. He has requested that we should maybe buy a few cases to add to the pantry. . .
a special treat
I wanted to give my wife a special treat and I knew she never had freeze dried ice cream before (I did many years ago once). Although she doesn’t even care for strawberry or chocolate ice cream at all, she loved it. She was amazed how delicious all three flavors were when they were freeze dried.
I like the icecream sandwichs a lot better but, this product is not bad once you get past the texture. nice treat.
For the kids!
I have a few pouches of these to keep my boys satisfied during a SHTF scenario. Granted, I enjoy a good treat every now and again, but these are mainly for the kids. The price is a little high, but to have ice cream in an emergency (especially with screaming kids) would be priceless. Pick up a few pouches and see for yourself!
Astronaut Ice Cream!
Just the same as 25 years ago when I was a kid! Now today I had my own kids try it for the first time. These are great for the comfort foods that we need in distress, I agree. the vanilla could use a touch more flavor, but all in all pleasing in many ways. I just thought that this ice cream would be excellent for hiking and eating one during a break. Wont get a cold treat, but at least get it when you normally couldnt. I will be stocking these singles for the kiddies school lunches and also for our food storage. I will also get a #10 can for a party or for "that" day.
Not really ice cream
I was a bit taken back. I don't know what I thought I was gonna get.... a big frosty bowl of cold ice cream? It would act as a comfort food in an emergency, I would buy it again, now I know what to expect.
I feel like this was like eating dense styrofoam and it didn't taste much better. Kid's love the novelty of it though, it's definitely worth it to brighten their day.
Kids love it, not me
This stuff gets weird and frothy when you are eating it because it's got this dry chalky taste, but I know that you need some sort of desserts during a situation so people feel better. This would be good for the kids, it's unique space type food, it'll distract for a little bit at least.
Great ice cream snack.
Was surprised how good it is. My wife and I really like them. A little spendy, but worth it in taste and comfort food value.
