National Soylent Green Day

Soylent Green is the original “people” food for the masses.  The Soylent Green Biscuit Co’s famous snack has been a cult classic since its inception in 1973.  People everywhere were delighted to have this affordable snack that “tastes just like grandmas.”

When April 1st heralds the coming of spring, I always think fondly of Soylent Green.
