Time for yet another snack review. This time it is the Tomei Roasted Chestnuts. Never heard of it? Well, same here. I just happened to chance upon it when I was browsing at my local supermarket the other day. As you guys might know by now, I have never been a fan of nuts. Although recent studies and research have shown that nuts are indeed healthy snacks, I never quite enjoyed nuts. Yes, a little peanuts here and there but that is about it. I seldom specifically go out to purchase nuts as food or even as a snack. But with increasing evidence that nuts have a multitude of health benefits, why not start trying them out?
From what I read, Chestnuts contains no cholesterol and very little fat. They also contain a good amount of Vitamin C as well as Iron and Potassium. Other than that, you have to do a little more hard reading. It seems to me that Chinese really enjoy consuming Chestnuts. You can see small stalls selling roasted chestnuts near the bus stops and interchanges. They do smell wonderful when they are roasted.

In my opinion, this taste pretty decent. It could be that I hardly even eaten chestnuts in my life. Semi-sweet taste and surprisingly mild in flavour. And they have this sweet sticky feel to it which I feel is quite nice. But since I have nothing to compare it with…..
