Taste test: The "Almond Crunch" name of these bars was a bit deceptive, as a closer examination of the box revealed that in addition to almonds, the bars contained peanuts and sunflower seeds.
Each bar was Pay Day-like, in that it was one solid crunchy block of nuts, held together by a sugary glaze, and not chewy at all. The almonds were bigger and darker in color than the peanuts and sunflower seeds, so they stood out visually, but it appeared that by volume the bar was actually more than 50% peanuts. In terms of numbers, there were far more peanuts than almonds. The taste was good, a nice mix of salty and sweet, and I was definitely able to taste both the peanuts and the almonds.

Smell test: Mostly a salted peanut smell, but slightly sweet. Pretty good.
