This package of peanut butter is typical of Shuttle-era menu choices. It was returned from the first Shuttle mission, STS-1 (Columbia), in 1981. Most foods stocked on the Shuttle are processed for storage at room temperature and packaged in individual portions. Astronauts may tailor their menus according to their personal tastes, but within nutritional guidelines.

Transferred from NASA to the Museum in 1981.
