- roasted chestnut
can’t be compared to fresh roasted chestnuts
Chestnuts any time of the year. Yea!!!
Tasted hard and not fully roasted
This was a mistake!
Not sure I want these
Hits the spot….
If you missed the holiday rush (like me) to stock up on chestnuts, you are faced with a craving problem. After Christmas, finding fresh chestnuts is close to impossible. These chestnuts solved that problem for me. But, I want to be clear… these chestnuts do not have the consistency of freshly roasted chestnuts. To compare fresh versus prepackaged is like comparing apples and oranges. There is no debate. But, if the question is on quality of a prepackaged, cooked chestnut (compared to another prepacked chestnut), that is a valid debate to have.
If you are looking to kill a chestnut craving, these chestnuts may fill that spot for you. If you are craving the consistency of freshly roasted chestnuts, you are going to be sadly disappointed, as many of the reviews will attest. Just have realistic expectations about how a prepacked, precooked food will be.
I’ve tried a number of frozen and precooked chestnuts and these chestnuts are the only ones I find edible (so far)… In fact, I just ordered my 3rd and 4th package of the six pack. These chestnuts are great for snacking and relatively lower in calories than most other nuts. Yes, some chestnuts are dark brown and sticky but it doesn’t take away from the taste. I really recommend putting the chestnuts in the refrig though, the flavors seem to pop more. Of the different precooked brands, this one works best for me so far….but everyone’s tastes are different.
And, as a side note, the chestnuts get a thumbs up from my cats that usually do not eat human food. It’s a sad day when I have to go into another room to quietly open a bag of chestnuts. If the cats hear me rustling that bag, they come running. They LOVE to eat these chestnuts.
Mmmm, yummy little brains. Haha
Delicious in Stuffing
desperate for the holidays
came and although small were a god send. The taste is really
no different than the large ones I am used to, they are just
about half the size so I had to purchase a boat load of these.
They did the trick just great and the price was very reasonable
vs. the larger unshelled ones I have purchased.
Just what I needed & expected
GREAT HEALTHY SNACK!
I also find the flavor very good. Although the darker color took some getting used to, it makes no difference to the chestnut flavor at all. I found them moist. However, chestnuts are a drier nut. (My grandfather always ate them with his wine!)
Chestnuts are also part of my diet. They’re low in calories, no cholesterol or fat and have a lot of Vitamin C and some iron even. Much better than any other nut to munch on IMHO.
I was buying these at my local grocery store, but due to the Christmas season, they’re out. If they don’t restock, I’ll be buying them again on-line. These are a staple in my household. Everyone loves to munch on them….esp. after they’ve been microwaved a wee bit to get them warm.
Chestnur dressing made possible
ABSOLUTELY DISGUSTING, WET, MUSHY, YUCK
so I ordered these. When something is roasted I was expecting
a roasted nut. Instead I opened a wet package of guey, soft,
disgusting tasting nuts. Now I find they are not returnable;
nor can I contact the seller. I order a lot on Amazon because
it usually is good quality, Prime is too cool. I am a Pharmacist
who works a lot of hours; hence it works for me.
This is so disappointing.
Product of China!?
Not very good .
Just OK. Value for price
But good value for the price, the jarred chestnuts from France are just too pricey. I don’t like that they’re from China, wish the company could find a European source. Probably won’t buy again, unless country of origin changes.
BTW, I found these at local supermarket during the holidays, if you want just one package.
