Bacon Was the First Thing Ever Eaten on the Moon

Bacon Was the First Thing Ever Eaten on the Moon
Just like most everyone else you know, astronauts love bacon, too!  According to Amy Shira Teitel on her Vintage Space blog, she explains:
"Bacon cubes were among the meals stored in the lunar module.  And it worked out that meal A, the first scheduled meal to be eaten on the Moon, consisted of bacon squares, peaches, sugar cookie cubes, pineapple grapefruit drink, and coffee.  They ate history's first meal on the Moon slightly ahead of schedule after landing at the Sea of Tranquility."

This isn't a particularly rare menu item for the astronauts, as NASA seems to have a huge love for bacon.
