      Good question danniella1588,
      In space the astronauts mostly eat dehydrated food that they have to add water to. Sometimes supply missions bring them up fruit and other nice things, but it costs about 5,000 dollars for 1 kilogram of anything to be sent into orbit, so fancy treats are rare.
