They were the most magical food I can think of! I remember once sneaking a whole box to my bedroom and eating every last one so I wouldn't have to share with my brothers. The day they took Space Food Sticks off the market was the day my childhood was over.

I was eight years old when my parents bought these for me, and I can still remember those chewy little peanut butter sticks more vividly than almost anything else from my childhood. I've wanted more of them for three decades!

Trekking through the jungles of the Amazon (actually the small woods located behind our house) then taking a break with a delightful meal of Space Food Sticks washed down with Tang from my canteen cup. True enjoyment!
--Sullivan, IL

I just remember they were totally cool and tasted like nothing else! They were fun, kinda' like todays fruit chews, but they were good enough for the astronauts, so my mom would buy them for me!
--Austell, GA

I remember back in 1970 and '71 playing over at my next door neighbors house and coming inside at 1:00 everyday to watch the "Cartoon Express" and eating those yummy peanut butter Space Food Sticks! Bring 'um back, and bring 'um back NOW!
--Lenoir, NC

Food Sticks, as we called them, were the best part of going to Granny's house !!
--San Marcos CA

Awesome! That's the word I'd use to describe these yummy, chewy, Tootsie Rollish snacks. I loved 'em, especially peanut butter! Bring them back!
--Chicago, IL

All I remember is loving the peanut butter variety and every since I was a kid I have been looking for a taste-equivalent. The best I've found so far has been some of the nutrition bars from the health food store.

I don't recall the actual name of the flavor (if you could call it that) that I liked the best, but I remember it tasted a little bit like chocolate laced with rubber bands.
--Carlsbad, CA

I loved the Sticks. Made me feel like I was an astronaut, too! Please bring them back. I would buy them by the sack full!!!
--Bethesda, MD

I  remember feasting on chocolate and peanut butter stick religiously when I was a youngster (about 25 years ago). They were an interesting little snack, that I used to pick apart and roll around in my hand until they were spherical. The weirdest thing about these is that only one person besides my mom remembers them (my husband doesn't even believe that they existed...but now he may become a believer). Thanks for the site, I will be looking
forward to reading about and maybe even seeing these again in the near future.

Space Food Sticks got me through lunch in elementary school. I still vividly remember those delectable carmel, peanut butter and chocolate sticks - bring them back!!!
--San Diego, CA

They were an easy and convenient junk food, and what more could a kid want? Plus the space connection made 'em awful cool. I'm so pleased I found your website. I was telling some of the "children" in my office about space food sticks just today, and they didn't believe me!
--Houston, TX

I loved these as a kid!!! I would buy soooo many of them!!
--Saugatuck, MI


I fondly remember Space Food Sticks. I have had diabetes since I was five and when my blood sugar would get low, my mom would let me have a Space Food Stick. I loved them, especially the caramel. I wish they'd be reintroduces. We'd love to take them hiking.
--San Ramon, CA

They were great as a child. Like playdoh and food all in one. I would mix two flavors to make little "earth" balls or "moons" before eating them. I was a preschooler at the time. As I got older I would just twist two flavors together. My Grandmother always had some on hand for her grandchildren and we loved them.

Peeling off the layered wrapper like a banana...exposing the fleshy snack...slowly sinking my new permanant teeth into the deliciousness that was the Space Food Stick. Bring 'em back!!!!!!
--Los Angeles, CA

They just tasted so awesome, especially when fresh.  I used to eat them while watching Scoobey Doo every Saturday morning as a kid.

Waiting in the stationwagon (which we called the SPACEion wagon) for my folk to come out of the Commsary with the weeks groceries so I could have my Space Food Sticks. So that I could eat just like the Real Astronauts!!! That box had to last me a WHOLE week!!
Denver, CO

I think my folks tried to pawn these off on us kids just once too often as an actual meal!! I remember eating the slim jim shaped chocolate and peanut butter ones in the back of our hot station wagon one day, and later getting sick!! Still, I would try them again for that nostalgic feeling!!
--Chicago, IL

I first tried them at Space Camp many years ago...they were really good. Although they should have been, as the price that NASA was paying for them makes that "$400 Pentagon hammer" seem like a real bargain!!
--Las Vegas, NV

I forgot all about these until I surfed here! They were great -- chewy and chocolaty -- and made our parents think they were giving us something nutricious. BRING THEM BACK!!!
