|All I remember is they were great! I only remember the
chocolate ones. BRING THEM BACK.
Oh, boy! Space Food Sticks! I was a 7-year-old all hopped up on
"2001" and science fiction when I first spotted Space Food
Sticks in the aisle at our local supermarket. I begged my mom to buy 'em,
and carried them faithfully to school in my 007 lunchbox, pretending
that I was eating lunch in a secret moonbase. (Perhaps that explains
more about me than I intended.)
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!!!

I loved them when I was a kid. My mom would buy a box, hide it, and
it would be gone by the end of the day. I wish Pillsbury would wise-up
and bring them back. They could hype it up and make trillions.
My brother and I used to eat these weird chocolate space food sticks and
they were cool! I would love to have some again!

I loved these as a kid!!! I would buy soooo many of them!!
Oh, yeah... I was wondering what happened to Space Food
Sticks! I didn't know they were produced into the 1980's, though! I am
now 41, and do remember Space Food Sticks from when I was a boy... they
were really good, chewy, and made me feel like an astronaut! My best
friend Tim and I were both space freaks, and Space Food Sticks were the
perfect snack for us to eat while we played with our Major Matt Masons
and built our Saturn V and Apollo models! Long live Space Food Sticks!
The future is now, let's bring them back!
I watched many Apollo missions take off and land. I was so excited when
space sticks came out. I made my mom buy them whenever I could and of
coarse she did. I loved space stick and I want them back. In this age of
energy bars the space stick was the first.
If they were good enough for the Astronauts, they were good enough for

I remember eating them with many a lunch brought to school - peeling
away the weird silvery paper (not the slick Mylar of today!) and biting
into the weirdly homogeneous cylinder of snack! I can remember the
flavor(s) even now.
We simply refered to them as "Space Sticks." They were only
around when I was a child, but my brother and I considered them a
special treat - so much so we'd ask for them as Christmas presents. We
were never allowed to eat more than two at a time but I always wanted
more. Chocolate was my favorite flavor.

Eating them when I was about 7 years old made me feel like an astronaut!
Bring 'em back - because no one believes me when I tell them that Space
Food Sticks existed!
--Universal City, TX
I remember eating them when I was around 2 years old (c. 1968-1969)on my
parents sofa. It had such an unusual taste that I haven't experienced
since that era.
Since my sister hated them, it was the one cool snack we never fought
My three brothers and two sisters were talking about the past and the
one thing that we all remember was space sticks, our grandparents slways
had a box on hand each time we would visit.
--Santa Fe, NM
I still remember tearing open the foil wrapper and eating the Space Food
Stick with the wrapper still wrapped around the bottom of the stick. My
favorite flavors were chocolate and orange. Sometimes my mom would buy
mint. I belive the boxes were different colors for different flavors -
brown, orange, green, etc. I am so excited to know I haven't just
imagined the whole thing!!!

I remember 1970...watching the NASA educational films in elementary
school. Then the lunch bell would ring and we'd race to the picnic
tables to eat our Space Food Sticks. We thought we were pretty darn
As a lifelong fan of the space program (and one who remembers as far
back as the Gemini missions), I do fondly recall Space Food Sticks. My
parents would purchase them for me almost every week; they didn't last
the week, of course. They were too good to leave on the shelf! I'd love
to see them again!
I took them to church camp, and ate them like they were going out of
style (which they did!).
My grandmother always gave me and my cousins space sticks. We loved
them and we have talked about what happened to them for years!
--Creve Coeur, MO
Individually Wrapped in a foil type pouch, approxiamtely 1/2"
diameter and approximately 5"long, preety chewy and didn't taste
too bad. Liked them when I was a kid.
I don't remember much just that they had the consistancy of rubberized
soft brownies and they tasted bland. But we loved them!
I loved the chocolate Space Food Sticks. I couldn't get enough of them
and was very disappointed when they were discontinued.
