SPACE COOKIES – Here we have a package of Apollo 11 sugar cookie cubes. Sealed in a 4-ply, laminated film coating, the sweet treats could be eaten without the addition of water and were bite-sized to avoid the chances of crumbs getting loose in a zero-gravity environment. Fun fact: The sugar cookies were manufactured by the Whirlpool Corporation.
