Are you to blame?

Yes, you.  You in the brown and yellow box.

Did you result in my stomach pains?  Why aren't you answering?  Oh right, you're an inanimate object.  Duh.

Yesterday afternoon I was struck with rather painful gas pains.  Not the most pleasant topic, I know, but it happens.

As soon as I have any stomach issues, I immediately evaluate what I ate to look for triggers.  Yesterday, small salad (possible), soup (also possible), fiber bar (possible), and a banana (possible but unlikely).  Since the pains didn't come on until later in the day, I guessed that it probably wasn't lunch.

Back in the day I really enjoyed the Fiber One Bars.  I ate them for quite sometime before realizing that they gave me really bad gas.  So I stopped eating them.  Given that experience, I'm wondering if this bar (Fiber One's competition) had similar effects.

The only way to know for sure is to test it out, but I'll have to save that for a day where gas won't really interfere.  Ewwww.

Any similar experiences?

Yes!!!!! I run from any box that says 'fiber' on it! It happened to me once and I didn't even want to test it to be sure that's what was causing the horrible gas pains. I don't remember which brand it was now. Could be because I'm not getting any younger and my stomach is much more sensitive than it used to be. My guess is, what's in that box is to blame!
