|My folks used to buy us every flavor available, I
especially liked the chocolate and peanut butter ones- think they came
in butterscotch too? I tell my children about them all the time and
would love it if they could try them. If they can bring back Pop Rocks,
why not Space Sticks?

I LOVED Space Food Sticks! They were a happy part of my
childhood that I will always remember fondly. I always loved to nibble
on them so they'd last a little longer. I miss them!
Best thing in my Lost in Space lunch pail. I used to trade everything
else I could to obtain my friends at lunch.
Please make them again, I miss them sooo much!
All I remember is that the things tasted FABULOUS! Was
it caramel flavor or butterscotch? Peanutbutter & chocolate were
good, too. I wish they'd bring them back - I would put them in my
Emergency Packs & eat them instead of candy!

I remember as a young child eating space food sticks in
the family car while wearing my apollo 11 jacket. They were to die for.
I remember eating them as a quick breakfast. (My mom was always running
late... and a little indulgent!) They made me feel very
I was just discussing this with someone at work. I'll
bet it's been 30 years since I had one.
The best snack I ever had! What else can I say? My sister says me
My uncle worked in the space program and bringing us some. I remember
them being very chewy and strongly flavored. Thought they were too cool!

MY BROTHER LOVED SPACE FOOD STICKS - HEY, I COULD GIVE
HIM MY STICKS AND HE'D STOP PULLING MY PIGTAILS. Please bring these back
- HE'S STILL A PAIN IN THE ____
I used to sit in a refrigerator box that I had drawn
spaceship instruments on and eat space food sticks and pretend I was in
outer space. I would do it again now (i'm 37) in a heartbeat were SPACE
FOOD STICKS available!!!
A group of us at a 70's party last week were talking about space sticks.
We all want them back!!!
Who was the company that manufactured those Space
Sticks? I miss them. Is it really possible that they could be on the
market again? When I was in college, I lived for weeks on end on nothing
but space food.

I loved them as a child. I'd eat 5 or 6 of them after
school while watching `Three Stooges' on TV
They just tasted so awesome, especially when fresh. I used to eat them
while watching Scooby Doo every Saturday morning as a kid.
I loved the advertisements on TV. The idea that these
Tootsie Toll-style treats were what the astronauts ate was irresistible
to me. The texture was good too. Tang and space food sticks--my ideal
'6os kid meal.
Peeling the aluminized wrapper after school and enjoying
the chewy goodness.
I remember taking one with me every day in my lunch pail
to school. I miss them even today.

I loved them as an adolescent! They were easy to slip
into a pocket, very tasty, and, because they were quite compact, you
could slip two or three into a pocket.

They were cool. We felt like a part of the exciting
endeavor of space.

Loved them as a kid.
I was born in 1963, so I don't remember THAT much about them. Just that
they were yummy and I felt like I was an astronaut eating them. I've
been trying to remember what they were called and what the packaging
looked like. Do you have any samples of the packaging which was in the
store in the 60's? I'm just glad there are other nuts out there like
myself! Thanks for trying to bring them back!
I never have had it. I want TO! :-)
Took them as my main source of food to the Atlanta Pop
Festival of 1970.
I never cared about the space-ness of the product, but what I liked was
the taste and texture. Not too not too gooey.
My brother and I always fought over who was going to be the pilot of the
space ship, so we would cut the space sticks up and "draw
straws" Shortest one got to be pilot but the longest one got more
I remember sneaking them into school and eating little pieces from my
desk. (Please don't use my full name on the website. I don't want any
former teachers hunting me down!)
Up until this morning, I thought I had made these up in
my mind! But thanks to Yesterdayland.com, I found your site. I can only
remember the peanut butter ones that my grandfather used to buy for me,
but I can still remember EXACTLY what they tasted like to this day. How
I used to love the commercial! and begging my mom to get us some. We
finally got them and we loved them!!!!!!! I don't remember the flavors,
but I would love chocolate and peanut butter
New and different, use to give them to my kids.
