Mostly bad nuts. Avoid.
I have to send in this review as this is the last time I will ever buy chestnuts from Tesco. For the last few years I’ve bought a bag as soon as they’re on the shelves and each time I would say there were approximately half a dozen of edible nuts, the rest were either powdery or obviously bad and at the price they are, that’s just not acceptable. I know it’s hard to tell if nuts in shells are good or bad but if no one says anything then how are they supposed to know. So here it is, Tesco, change your suppliers.

origin Spain, I never eat something so disgusting, after the first I tried, I have put it in the bean. I have never eaten such disgusting chestnuts, more than 50% were soaked, and the others felt they were old, could not peel and the taste was terrible. I believe that a giant like Tesco should test the product before selling it. I think these things shouldn't happen.
Be aware of these
I bought this rubbish last week they were all rotten and I complained and got a refund so be aware
GREAT BUY but only from Italy
I have been buying these for years and use mainly in Stuffing, but ONLY from ITALY. I BOIL them and after peeling I freeze them so that I have a supply all year. I am pleased to see them in stock again so have started to buy my stock in.
Awful, worst we’ve ever had
Terrible they were sprouting and most had mould on them
Bad buy - tough to peel and poor quality
When peeled some are quite black and inedible others are really tough to peel as there are so many deep grooves and cracks in the kernel it is impossible to remove the bitter inner skin.
More than half of the Spanish chestnuts I bought were bad. Asked for a refund! The Italian nuts I bought last year were much better.

These chestnuts were dried out and gross. They came from Turkey. How about nice, fresh English chestnuts next year?
