    Probably not - most foods need to first be dehydrated - all need to be pretty much 'crumbs-free' - and while on the ISS they DO get some select fresh items, long term storage would be almost impossible. A NASA spokesperson was on a radio talk show recently discussing what they were fed up there.

    In truth my first image just reading the thread title was of an exotic dancer from the 60's named Boom-Boom Betty. Then I realized the OP meant the food product of the North.
