Clif Bar, oh how I despise you now

Force equation
The oatmeal raisin walnut Clif Bar is now on my hate list. I'm suffering some severe indigestion now, and I can't pinpoint a reason beyond Mr. Clif. Anyone who has a clue is welcome to tell me. Ingredients are as follows:

Organic Brown Rice Syrup, ClifPro® (Soy Rice Crisps [Soy Protein Isolate, Rice Flour, Malt Extract], Organic Roasted Soybeans, Organic Soy Flour), Organic Rolled Oats, Raisins, Organic Evaporated Cane Juice, Walnuts, ClifCrunch® (Organic Oat Fiber, Inulin [Chicory Extract], Organic Milled Flaxseed, Organic Oat Bran, Psyllium), Organic Soy Butter, Molasses Powder, Natural Flavors, Ground Cinnamon, Sea Salt.

ETA: I did not have this issue with PowerBar brand Harvest Bars back before they started adding peanut butter to everything.

Inulin can cause indigestion, especially if you're unaccustomed to it.

With that combination of fiber and soy, you might as well suck on a sandblaster.

soy butter can go bad pretty easily (according to the kids' pediatrician) and he recommended we stay away from it in food unless we could guarentee the temp of whatever it was in. (yes, I know that was a preposition at the end of the sentence -I'm tired)

Anyhow, hope you feel better soon.

Vol 1 of the Bloom County omnibus made it much better.
