I think the idea of desert without chocolate, whipped cream and cherries is ridiculous.

For Nozick, more difficult to disentangle than for Hayek.

Hayek was concerned with procedural liberty (most of all concerned with the rule of law, remember) and in large part for utilitarian purposes. He was not too far away from Rawls , and expresses his concern in "Fatal Conceit" in terms of wanting a society where a random person is most likely to achieve their ambitions. That's as far as he goes in terms of justice - he has an idea of what it involves rather than what it entails... And he regards it as dangerous, idle theorising to insist on what it entails (hence the title of the second volume of LL&L).

Nozick is more difficult because (as is fitting for a philosopher rather than a political theorist) his view links entitlement to justice. As I recall, justice in transfer would imply that the gains from trade are just, except for the fact that the original position (i.e., justice in holding) will not normally be correct/perfect.
