Strawberry Cereal Cube

Mission: Mercury-Redstone/Atlas   Crew: N/A
Comment: Similar cubes were consumed during Gemini
and Apollo missions.

This strawberry cereal cube is an example of the bite-size foods the Mercury astronauts were provided to eat during their Earth-orbital missions. A gelatin coating was applied to cubes like this to keep from crumbling when consumed.
