What would travel in space be like without dessert? Certainly less appealing. Most astronauts have the same cravings for sweets as the rest of us. The formula is simple. Astronauts plus desserts equal happy crews. OK, maybe that is a bit of an exaggeration.

M&Ms might be the perfect complement to a meal one evening, but the next day it has to be cake!
