Flash back to the moon race years. Anyone who watched TV, read a magazine or listened to the radio back then remembers Space Paste. It was heavily advertised and sponsored several popular shows including the Jetsons (of course).

Space Paste was a very advanced total nutrition and dental hygiene system originally designed for astronauts. With just one brushing you could get a full day’s supply of protein, carbs, fats, vitamins, minerals, fiber, fructose and calories.

To make sure the nutrients were absorbed you needed to pre-rinse with a brine solution, brush thoroughly and then follow up your brushing with a sealant. It took about 20 minutes.

Just about everyone in the United States loved the stuff. I know I did and if you are of a certain age, I’m sure you did too.

The food industry took a huge hit. People still ate normal food but much less of it, especially when Diet Space Paste came out.

I’m sure we would all still be enjoying Space Paste now if it weren’t for the radioactivity in the brine and the lead in the sealant. When someone figured out these things weren’t good for us, Space Paste was taken off the market and the Jetsons were cancelled.

Astronauts still use it.
