We offer a number of traditional style carts that are perfect for chestnuts or for corporate events such as exhibitions we can design and build a cart to your specifications.
Chestnuts, (not to be confused with conkers which are poisonous) are one of the most versatile of natures gifts, they can be made into bread, beer, or eaten as they are, indeed in some remote parts of Europe it is said that a village can never starve if it has a crop of chestnuts.
Chestnuts differ from most other nuts in that they have very little protein or fat, their calories are derived chiefly from carbohydrates, and contain much lower calories than walnuts, almonds or other nuts. They contain very little fat, mostly unsaturated and no gluten, and they are the only nuts that contain vitamin C.
Our most popular chestnut cart is the old fashioned engine type, this can dispense freshly roasted chestnuts and also mulled wine, spiced cider or hot Pimms if required.
We also offer a range of other carts suitable for chestnuts and mulled wine;
We serve the chestnuts in the traditional little paper bag, but they can be served in cups, on trays, any way you like them, opening up possibilities for branding opportunities.
Roman legions would plant chestnut trees on long campaigns to help feed them, and legionnaires were given chestnut porridge before going into battle, in Asia Minor in 401BC a Greek army was said to have survived a long retreat due to their stores of Chestnuts.
Whilst we wouldn’t fancy living on chestnuts alone they do make a great treat for winter events, though we always advise guests to peel the shell off before eating them, as we have seen a number of times, usually with the comments of “These are a bit crunchy”
