Rated 5 out of 5 by from an alternate view ok, I don't want this stuff to sell out, but neither do i like that it's sitting here with 1 star from someone who hated it. Did you ever buy "astronaut ice cream" as a kid from the museum? Well, this is the same thing. It's wonderful, creamy, and reminiscent of the honeycomb-like candy bars that they have outside of the US. If you expect ice cream, well it won't be that - it's more like a creamy candy thing. And I agree that the ice cream bars are pretty nasty, but this stuff I think is quite lovely as a sweet dessert or snack.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soo delicious! I can't see how anyone could not like this! It is soo good! It tastes just like Neapolitan Ice cream but just dried. My only complaint is I think the portion should be bigger, like a full ounce. One bag is kind of small I need 2 bags to be satisfied! Also, if you really like this and want to stock up, ask for a box of it. It comes in a box of 12 packages, so instead of taking a whole bunch off the shelf ask for a box of it! If you order it on-line order 12 and it will come in a handy box instead of loose.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Interesting I am getting prepared for my first backpacking trip ever. So I have been experimenting with freeze dried food. I don't want to be up in the woods and have picked something out I won't eat. This was my first experiance with freeze dried. It was a weird texture for me. It made me feel like I was eating chalk but it was good chalk. I could only eat a few bites as I was still getting used to the chalk like texture. I do know this will be in my backpack as it really wasn't that bad. It tasted like icecream just not cold.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it. I first tried freeze dried ice cream way back when I went on a science trip in school as a kid. Ever since then I have been seeking out something like it, I ended up finding more in the camping aisle of walmart. Well worth taking with you anywhere, if you have never tried this before and was curious, the strawberry is like a light whip strawberry, the vanilla has a very light flavor and the chocolate is like a light fudgey chocolate.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Backpacking indulgence Ice cream on a backpack trip? This is an amazing treat well into your multi-day trip. You put a small chunk of what feels like styrofoam on your tongue, close your mouth, and let your senses take over. Forget the fact that it isn't cold, it actually tastes like the real thing. It is fun to take it without telling the rest of the group and surprising them with an ice cream desert out in the boonies. Tip: Too much packaging, so remove it at home and put it in a small plastic container.
