Where to buy Chestnuts in Boulder, not in a jar please

Hello. I'm not sure where to buy fresh roasted chestnuts in Boulder, CO. I'd love some help with this!

I'm used to living near Japanese markets who bring them out for the winter season but have never seen them in Boulder.

Thank you in advance.

  1. King Soopers on Table Mesa will have chestnuts from China a little closer to Thanksgiving, but you will have to roast them which is quite easy.

      Thank you so much for the super-quick reply!!!


    2. I always see them at Whole Foods here in Denver from early November through January. I’m sure the Boulder store will also have them.

        Thanks! I'll look at both places so I can see who has what I want to most. I wish they were around all year...jarred ones are icky to my taste.

          I feel the same way. I snap 'em up all season and am so sad to see the last ones go.

            I miss the way they do this in Japan town; they give you a bag in which each one has a little split, then, you just put the little plastic opener in and, pop! off goes the shell and in goes the yum!
