Mountain House Freeze Dried Ice Cream Sandwich


It tastes great. I was surprised.

The ice cream has a rich taste, just like a regular ice cream sandwich. Of course, since it has been freeze dried, it is crunchy, not creamy.

The closest comparison I can make is this. You remember those malted milk balls with the chocolate covering? Well, the center of the malted milk balls has nearly the same consistency and texture as the freeze dried vanilla ice cream. However, where the malted milk center has larger holes, the freeze dried ice cream has smaller holes, and has a much finer consistency. So overall, I would much rather eat this than eat a malted milk ball. But then, I’m not really a malted milk ball fan.

The chocolate cookie wafers taste just like they do in a regular frozen ice cream sandwich. The freeze drying process just makes them a little crisper. But they have the same familiar chocolate cookie taste.

In the past, I read one review where they said freeze dried ice cream tasted like cotton candy. I disagree. I don’t think it tastes like cotton candy at all.

Bottom Line

Is it delicious? Yes. Does it taste like a frozen ice cream sandwich? No. But it doesn’t require refrigeration either, and it lasts for 2 years. I can see how astronauts would enjoy this in Space. It provides a familiar taste, just with a different presentation to your taste buds.

Also, I understand why parents love to buy cases of this stuff for their kid’s birthday parties.

It’s okay to be a Space Cadet when you eat freeze dried ice cream.
