If you dream of traveling into space, then fire up your rocket launcher, cause we have a treat that will blast you into orbit. Edible candy bowls straight from the Milky Way will hold any cryogenically frozen treat. Even Aliens will love these extraterrestrial delights!

This ain’t no space junk my stellar friends! Bowls that you can devour are more practical, as keeping your payload light is a priority when traveling at warp speed.

Items are available across the universe at any big-box or craft store.
