In the 1960s NASA asked Pillsbury to help them develop an edible food snack that American astronauts could conveniently eat in a space shuttle. The result of their efforts resulted in a glorious example of space food technology...which was then reformulated for the non-space-traveling public and aptly named Space Food Sticks.
Watch the commercial for Space Food Sticks after the jump. And be sure to watch it all the way to the end; the last 3 seconds are awesome. [via io9]
