I thought this was going to be a tooth-buster but it is surprisingly chewy, which is sort of amazing given that this is basically a handful of mixed nuts glued together with sugar. The flip side of course is soft nuts give off a "stale" impression which just isn't at all the case, it is just the sugar. High fat of course (it is almost all nuts) but pretty good.
