WEB DESK: Gastronaut Ice Cream, which comes in a bar, can be enjoyed at room temperature wherever you take it, meaning this week’s record high temperatures would be no problem at all.
The organic snack is very different from its frozen counterpart, as it can be crumbled in your hands. But once you begin eating it, the product transforms into the ‘exact same sweet and creamy ice cream you’ve known all your life.’
The recipe takes real ice cream which has been freeze-dried to preserve and dehydrates it, with nothing added to it except a pinch of salt.
Freeze-drying involves first freezing a food substance and then creating a powerful vacuum before adding heat which draws out the frozen liquid from the food as vapour.
The Gastronaut range currently consists of three mouth-watering flavours – Mexican Chocolate Chip, Cookies and Cream and Mint Chocolate Chip.
The bar will retail at about £4.50 ($6) and is currently available for about £3.80 per bar ($5).
