RXBAR was sent to me as a sample. The taste reminds of a brownie but it is hard. This did have nuts, the nuts were almonds. It was good while eating but I notice an after taste. This came with a nut butter topping when I ate the RXBAR with the topping applied the after taste was not as noticeable. It did have a good balance of salt.
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
