Thanks to Canada’s semi-final victory at the Sochi Olympics on Friday, the Americans will eventually ship a box of maple creams to the International Space Station.
The U.S. space agency had accepted the challenge by wagering a cookie emblazoned with red, white and blue “Stars and Stripes” icing.
The Canadian Space Agency savoured the 1-0 victory, saying on its Twitter account: “Can’t tweet. Mouth full, crumbs abound!”
With an eye on Sunday’s Olympic gold-medal game against Sweden, the CSA then tweeted: “How to do you say maple cream cookies in Swedish?”
