Chestnuts - Good or Bad?

Misty absolutely loves chestnuts. She will eat them cooked or roasted. She will even remove the shell! She goes nuts (no pun intended) whenever she sees someone eating them. The other day I was having lunch and the whole time I was eating my meat and potatoes, she just watched me waiting for a morsel, but as soon as I picked up a chestnut, that was it! She went balistic! I mean the barking, whining, howling, she really wanted a chestnut! She could be in the other room, but if she hears that roasted shell crack, she is by your side in an instant!

Does anyone know if they are harmful to her? I know that they can cause weight gain, but anything else? She has never had any type of negative reaction to them.

Does anyone else's dog have a weird food liking?
