Marrons Glace are a delightful artisan confection. With a delicate texture and and a balanced richness they are an ideal treat with coffee or an after dinner drink.
In the beautiful green countryside of Galicia, fresh chestnuts are harvested in autumn, soaked in water, peeled and wrapped carefully in a fine netting to avoid breakage.
Then the chestnuts are marinated for about seven days in vanilla bean syrup. Finally, once they are saturated by the natural syrup, the chestnuts are drained and beautifully wrapped for your enjoyment.
Chestnuts are harvested in the fall and are most often enjoyed as a Christmas treat, but this delicacy can be enjoyed year round.
Our Marrons Glacés are an all natural product, created by Cuevas, in business since 1867.
Chestnuts, sugar, glucose syrup, vanilla and preservative E223 (sulphites).

"The quality and presentation of the Cuevas marrons glacés are fantastic and they are a great value for the price compared to other options i could find. The only problem I had was that sweetness of the sugary coating overwhelms the chestnut flavor. My solution is to give each one a quick rinse in water just before eating. This makes the fantastic flavor of the chestnut shine through, with just the right amount of sweetness. Would love if this product were available in a bigger size."

"While perfectly packaged, the product was not what we expected. The marron glaces were crystalized lumps of sugar, with no hint of a chestnut. The ones we had years ago were chestnuts in a thick syrupy "sauce", two distinct textures and flavors. Perhaps the crystalized lump is the way they are commonly made now, but they were an expensive disappointment."

"Gave this as Xmas gift to my mom who is a Marron Glaces fanatic! Big success! First, it is much cheaper than the $6 each for Teuscher and $5.50 for Maison du Chocolat BUT my mom rated it close to Maison du Chocolat. Teuscher stil comes out on top in excellence but Cuevas beats them in terms of value and presentation. Delicious!"
