The Mush Bar is a cheap, grisly meal for Duplicants. While it is useful in the early stages of colony development, it's best to discontinue feeding Duplicants Mush Bars as soon as a steady food supply is established, as Duplicants contract Diarrhea from eating a single Mush Bar.

Too many duplicants contracting Diarrhea can lead to overuse of a colony's toilets, making Outhouses back up or causing strain on wastewater treatment systems. This diverts Duplicants' attention to servicing the latrines when their time could otherwise be used more productively. The absence of available toilets can lead to more problems, such as Duplicants Making a Mess which causes more strain on a colony's attention as well as Soggy Feet and the spread of Food Poisoning.

Avoiding Diarrhea Edit

Cooking 2,000 kcals worth of Mush Bars at a Electric Grill produces 1,000 kcals of Mush Fry, taking twice as much ingredient material to cook but removing the possibility of Duplicants contracting Diarrhea.
