Chestnuts - Hot in 2011 (Apparently)

Right before Christmas, I spotted chestnuts and roasting instructions at Trader Joe's.  When I was in there this week, chestnuts were again prominently displayed.  These weren't raw, but rather steamed and peeled.  Are these for snacking?  Are chestnuts going to be "hot" in 2011?  Are they tasty?
The TJ's buyer must be awfully close to whomever controls the chestnut racket, right?
