In commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the 1969 moon landing, Deliveroo is inviting space (and food) enthusiasts to join in on the nostalgia and celebrate the much loved children’s treat, Space Food Sticks.
These illustrious sticks, with out-of-this-world cachet, were a commercial version of the original Pillsbury creation, designed to sustain the space crew, when remained sealed within the astronaut’s pressure suits.
Deliveroo tasked a food scientist to recreate the legendary snack using the exact specifications and ingredients of the 70s/80s original. After months of testing in a lab, the compressed food bar that dazzled kids with its fudgy texture and heavenly taste was recreated.
Sadly, Space Sticks only live on as a fond childhood memory, however, Deliveroo is bringing these back for the nostalgic adults missing their NASA themed chocolate fix for a limited time.
From Friday 19th and as long as stocks last, the rebooted Space Food Sticks will be available exclusively via the Deliveroo app and website for a galactically good $1. The price is a “giant leap” away from the only other source of the snack on the planet; an Ebay seller that lists Space Food Sticks at USD $1,000 per box.
Joe Satari at Deliveroo said: “As we look back at the first steps of the moon, we are so excited to reboot a cosmic culinary wonder for the legions of young, aspiring astronauts. For those who can remember, Space Sticks were arguably the best snack to ever land in your lunchbox and now they’re back from out of space, exclusively on Deliveroo.”
Once gone, but never forgotten – these retro snacks will transcend you to a better time.
