These were satisfactory and worked with the recipe I was making but they were not at all what I expected on opening the can. A great number of the chestnuts had broken into pieces. They were supposed to be water packed but there was a lot of what appeared to be fat which made it look like no water. I assume the fat was from the nuts during the canning process. I would not rely on these for any fancy dish where you want intact chestnuts. In addition the canning process seems to reduce flavor considerably.

While the transaction with the vendor purchased from was perfect I was disappointed in the taste of this product. I'm not sure what I expected, maybe a little firmer of a chestnut? I was going to put these in my Thanksgiving stuffing but didn't as I thought the whole thing would turn into a mushy paste in the middle of my delicious bread so I left them out. I only opened one can - now I have another can and I don't know what I'm going to do with it. My mistake, but if you are expecting a firm texture you won't get it with this product.

These French chestnuts are the best type to use for baking and as stuffing. They have a very pure flavor and are subtle enough for desserts. I have tried all other types of chestnuts, but these are the best. Italian fresh chestnuts ( which are available fresh in my grocery store) are smaller and have a less sophisticated and subtle flavor. The difference is akin to that between a California Red Zinfandel and an aged, French Bordeaux. If I lived in France, I would use fresh Chestnuts, otherwise- I use only the Clement Faugier brand. ( NOTE: these chestnuts are in water, not sugar syrup. Be careful when you buy canned chestnuts, many come in a syrup which is not at all suitable for some dishes.)

This order was received within a few days of ordering and was very well-packed.

These were a big disappointment, soggy, without taste and ugly to boot.

And before you say it, I have nothing against the French!

Soggy, water-logged crumbling into mush chestnuts. I know it says "in water" but I did not expect the chestnuts to be disintegrating. Best way to purchase them cooked and peeled is vacuum packed. It's a bit pricier and you'll probably have to stock -up during the holidays but the quality is leaps and bounds ahead of these.

Needed these as an ingredient in a dessert. It can in the can soaking in water. When handling it falls apart very easily. It seems a bit expensive for the amount. I will buy fresh chestnuts in the future and boil them myself for far less.
