These are THE BEST.

5 stars

Other brands are good but this is The Best. We use for making stuffing and to make a veggie nut loaf. Difficult not to pop one or two in your mouth while the packet is open. So nice to be able to buy when it is not Christmas. Thanks Tesco.

Not whole chestnuts

1 stars

Not whole chestnuts. Many/most are cut up and pieces of chestnuts. Nuts don't taste all that good and are more for the 'memory' of good chestnuts. Don't bother


5 stars

Absolutely delicious. They didn’t make it to the stuffing we devoured them before they hit the chopping board.

Perfect rich, soft textured chestnuts

5 stars

From reading other reviews, it's worth knowing that roasted chestnuts are not meant to be crunchy like other nuts; they are meant to be slightly soft. Their texture is more like fudge really without the sweetness. These chestnuts are really good and very tasty. Perfect for Christmas as an accompaniment to brussel sprouts and pancetta.

I cook these with spouts, add them to curry dishes

5 stars

I cook these with spouts, add them to curry dishes and nut roasts. These are cooked and can be eaten straight from the pack. They are not dry like oven-roasted chestnuts hence the negative reviews of others.

Not how I remember a chestnut to taste like.

1 stars

Yuck. Wet and mushy, horrible taste and nothing like a chestnut. If I was doing a blind tasting I would not have guessed that these were chestnuts. Tasted very fake and chemical like. Disappointed.

Based on the good reviews I bought these, but wish

1 stars

Based on the good reviews I bought these, but wish I hadn't! None of the chestnuts were 'whole' they were in flat halves and are tiny, and they were coated in slime.I can't liken them to chestnuts at all, they are vile and went straight in the bin upon opening them. If you want chestnuts buy some fresh ones and roast them because what was in this bag did not resemble chestnuts at all.

Mixed with veg or just eat as they are, lovely!

Great taste!

5 stars

Since I became a vegetarian this is one of my favourite things to eat for dinner.

Tasty cookers

5 stars

Tasty chestnuts, not dry, could eat these all year. None of the chestnuts have so far been mouldy tasting like the ones in the shells can sometimes be, and we’ve been through a good few bags now. They don’t have the crispy inner skin that ones you roast yourself do (no loss for me). Fine for cooking with. I’ve not tried reheating them to butter as if I’d roasted them myself, so not sure if they’d be suitable for that.
