Our Gunslebert cobnut gift bags are the perfect present for anyone who loves cobnuts. Our gift bags come in weights of 500g or 1kg. The bags are perfectly reusable and are made from jute, with a drawstring that seals the bag. If you want an original, rural and wholesome gift this is the answer!
This year we will have a limited supply of gift bags due to a very successful summer season so do not delay.
Our delicious Dehusked Cobnuts are full of flavour and are perfect in dishes or simply on their own. We like roasting them and dipping them in dark chocolate! Dehusked Cobnuts become darker during the season.
Cobnuts have a nationally recognised nutritional profile and are said to be fantastic sources of protein:
Cobnut kernels typically contain 12%-17% protein by dry weight, and about 10%-15% fibre. Cobnuts are very rich in vitamin E and in calcium, typically containing about 21mg and 141mg per 100g kernel (dry weight) respectively. They provide about 0.4mg and 0.55mg of vitamins B1 and B6 respectively per 100g dry weight.
Our gift bags are available in bag of 500g or 1kg. To avoid the nuts overly drying you should allow a maximum of 2 weeks between purchase and gifting. To preserve the moisture in the nuts you should consider refrigeration or keep them in cool location.

Please also note that all our cobnut gift bags are labeled ‘Kent Cobnuts’ even when ordering a different variety gift bag. All different varieties (not Kent Cob) will have a card attached to the rope detailing the exact variety. Images for display purposes only.
