Dining in microgravity is a tricky thing.

Crumbs can find their way into the nooks and crannies of sensitive instruments, fresh food is hard to come by and drinking liquids without a straw is an adventure on its own.

However, astronauts do get a say in what sort of freeze-dried, dehydrated and thermostabilized foods they get to eat. They also get to take a taste of home with them to the International Space Station.

When Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield embarks for the ISS on Dec. 19, he'll have some tasty Canuck treats to look forward to. The Canadian Space Agency is sending Hadfield off with 35 Canadian foods chosen both by the agency and a "Snacks for Space" contest.

You can see Hadfield's full menu here and check out the chosen treats menu below:
