    Apollo 17 Flown Gingerbread Cookies. Astronauts eat three meals a day and nutritionists ensure the food they eat provides a balanced supply of vitamins and minerals. Calorie requirements differ for individual astronauts. For instance, a small woman would require only about 1,900 calories a day, while a large man would require about 3,200 calories. NASA offers a wide range of foods to choose from, including fruits, nuts, peanut butter, chicken, beef, seafood, candy, brownies, etc. Beverages generally include coffee, tea, orange juice, fruit punch, and lemonade. Many foods can be eaten in their natural form, such as brownies and fruit, while others must be mixed with water, such as macaroni and cheese or spaghetti. Offered here is an "eight-pack" of gingerbread cookies that was flown to the Moon on Apollo 17. Each cookie resembles a small brown gambling die. Still sealed in their original wrapper and bearing tags identifying it as "Gingerbread 1333" and "Serial No. FAY975," these cookies might still be edible, but we don't recommend it!
