The Week contest: Space snack

This week's question: A team of NASA-funded researchers has found a method for converting human feces into an edible, protein-rich paste that could feed spaceship crews on a three-month flight to Mars. To persuade astronauts to survive on this recycled foodstuff, and perhaps to market it to the public, what appetizing, family-friendly name could NASA give it?
