Revisiting Peanut Butter Space Food Sticks
This past December I wrote a mopey entry about the disappearance of Space Food Sticks (while happily munching on one that I had procured at the Franklin Institute Science Museum gift shop- CLICK HERE to read original entry). Then a box of 12 (Twelve!) Peanut Butter Space Food Sticks arrived at my door as if by magic. Turns out my friend Blake had done some research and discovered that they are for sale online at funkyfoodshop.com. In 2006, Funky Food Shop licensed the rights to Space Food Sticks, determined to keep the candy in production for its fans. Funky Food Shop also hosts the website for the Space Food Stick Preservation Society, with all kinds of goodies such as early Space Food Sticks advertisements as well as a good history of the candy. Thanks, Blake!
