Then again, the reason it’s being mentioned here is simply that it’s being sold at all:
The Parallax Corp. introduces the officially licensed Soylent Green, a high-energy plankton food. The all-natural crackers, which contain real high-energy plankton, are made in the U.S. at a small-batch gourmet food manufacturing plant.
Plankton. Sure. That’s what they told us in the commercials. And if it has such high energy, how did you ever catch it in the first place?
“We worked to create a collectible box that looks just the way Soylent Green would have been packaged,” says Parallax president David Garth, “and the box design recreates the utopian propaganda of an evil mega-corporation with the feelings of despair and hunger depicted in the movie.”
May we suggest a lovely beverage perhaps a vintage Agent Orange?
