Artjack - in England (and Australia) they roast and eat sweet CHESTNUTS - - chestnuts are a different plant from Horse chestnut - though they look similar
Sweet Chestnut Castanea sativa
as distinct from
Horse-chestnut Aesculus hippocastanum,

Please do NOT eat a Horse Chestnut - its poisonous - though the sweet chestnuts that you will see (in season) served roasted on the street corners in London and for sale in shops both in shell and canned - are lovely

HORSE-CHESTNUT (AESCULUS HIPPOCASTANUM) - TOXIC VARIETY

Horse chestnut is a familiar deciduous tree, well known for its large, compound leaves and colourful fruit in their spiky cases. Although this fruit is similar to the edible, sweet chestnut, the two trees are unrelated.

Horse chestnuts are toxic. Children, especially, are attracted by the lustre of the fruit, which traditionally were strung and struck against one another in the game of “conkers.”

Lorraine An attitude of gratitude makes all the difference. According to aerodynamic laws, the bumblebee cannot fly. Its body weight is not the right proportion to its wingspan. Ignoring these laws, the bee flies anyway.

My suggestion is that the word igiven by the next person start with the last letter of the previous word . All words suggested are required to be healthy foods.
Example - I say - apple - the next person says Eggplant - the next person - something starting with T etc!!
