    Is that the freeze dried ice cream?That is without doubt the wierdest stuff I have ever eaten. I got some from the Johston Space centre in Houston. It tastes exactly like ice cream but the texture and temperature are just wrong.

    Texan's. All the cheap and nasty chocolate used to fall off and you had to eat it off the floor - and then the toffee used to break your teeth.Oh how I used to love them.

    they still sell salt 'n' shake crisps and sherbet UFO's, you just need to know where to look...a texaco garage a couple of miles away sells all old school sweeties, including sherbet fountains, drumstick lollies and wham bars.... love it.
