Or slices of Velveeta.

Even the green ones? Time to throw out that loaf of Velveeta.

Or, maybe, "Green Microtapes are PEOPLE!"
People, people, it's like Chevy Chase said about a certain product in the 70s ... "It's a desert topping AND a floor polish!"

So that would mean green microtapes are velveeta AND people! (probably invented by somebody named Dairyman who worked for Feinberg.)

(though the tapes themselves reminded me of a breakfast snack that I think was called Breakfast Squares. It came well after space food sticks, but I still stick them in the same category of 'pretty good for their time even though they have processed the hell out of them.')
