Joe - "You don't have any idea of the history involved and that's ok, you don't need to. No chill pills needed."
Joe if there is a history, maybe you should just drop it, better yet not even start in on the conversation, because from this statement you are intentionally trying to start something. Tact, versus personally attacking someone's mannerisms will get you a lot further in life with any human being.
If you read the ingredients, it's simple to see this is not the recipe for anyone concerned with healthy foods. It doesn't matter how you add the sugar, either way it will be loading some form of B-1,4-glucose or fructose monomers into your system after the enzymes in your small intestines break down the macro molecules... This recipe is for people like me that want to hike 20 miles a day after doing 20 miles the day before and already sneak in cliff bars and candy bars to keep the on demand energy flowing. It's not going to be for someone that is weight conscious and only hiking a few miles a day.
I for one can't wait to make a few and try them out on my next hike. Cliff bars have become fairly blah, after the amount of them that I have eaten.
