I bought a lot of these when they were on sale at Tesco for 4 for 86p, Very tasty just like heinz but gave me lots of wind!!

Same price @ ASDA currently, as i got some delivered in my online shop yesterday....
I usually go for the Basic Beans @ 29p a tin, but i go via mysupermarket.co.uk & it flagged up this was a better deal @ 25p a TIN.
Beans are Beans @ the end of the day lol

I don't know what you are tasting, but these are most definitely NOTHING like Heinz! :?

Some hate them others love them, but the taste isn't even close!

Another person without any sense of taste at all? :?

I could probably pick them out blindfold after eating a plate of raw chillis!

Apart from taste, consistency and colour are very different between different brand

I totally agree nothing like Heinz,

Heinz have very watery sauce and taste full of sugar, Heinz= crap beans.

Beans are £1 for 4 at Iceland all the time.

Actually they are all full of sugar, (I can't eat them without an Insulin rush, & being Insulin resistant, I now avoid them in any quantity) with Heinz it is the strong vinegar that I can't abide and can pick out easily!

These are the best beans on the market... FACT appart from KFC BBQ ones :)

Do you have a preferred bean brand/supermarket brand? I like a nice, fairly thick tomato sauce without them being overly sweet or salty. I agree that there is a difference in taste between brands. My parents always bought reduced salt/sugar supermarket-branded beans for us when I was younger, so my preference is with those and Heinz/Branston really stand out. I remember tasting Heinz when I was younger and hating them. It's like trying full sugar Cola when your tastebuds are trained to 'Diet'. From memory, I found the Aldi or Lidl own-brand beans to be OK (Corale perhaps?).

According to a blind tast test of 120 persons at Which, Branston's closely followed by Heinz, Morrison's, Tesco, Sainsbury's & Lidle. came out top.
#12
These are the best
still getting through my 36 cans from Tesco when they were 86p for 4
#13
I just spotted these in Tesco. 50p per tin, or £2.45 for a pack of 4 - mad!

From taste, the Branston are unbeatable, so they are always in the house, for others! BUT, for the past few months I have had to move to a low carb diet, and despite being nominally not very high carb (Low Glycaemic Index) and in theory, acceptable for me; however I get a noticeable insulin "rush" with them. Have tried a few other brands too with the same effect. I can eat any amount of other plain soaked or canned beans (cannelini, haricot, butter beans etc,) without any problem, so I am presuming it is the sugar content of the sauce, which is plain old white sugar with it's problems.

Oddly I haven't thought to move on to the low sugar ones, I never ate a lot of canned beans anyway, and probably because I have had to give up on so many other foods too, I have just accepted it (and moaned about the intense tedium of a low carb diet too!)

After reading the comments about the beans and the sauce, I thought I would reveal something that I didn't know until a few weeks ago, and I have eaten baked beans for years.

The sauce is the most obvious difference, but the "beans" themselves are also different. The beans are manufactured. They are NOT natural beans. You can check this by trying to split one down the middle. All true beans, and peas, can easily be split into two halves. Baked beans are made by cooking a mix of bean paste (made from navy beans or haricot beans) and other ingredients. They are then pressed into moulds, so they look like natural beans!

There was an original patent for this filed by Heinz in the US, but presumbly it expired.

Oh, I suppose they put the skins on in a similar way? What do they do, grow the skins on the backs of genetically modified camels? :whistling:

I have read some crank stories on the Internet over the years, but this one is a sure award winner!

This is quite correct - the skins you find in the sauce are made by 'spraying a vegetable based protein' into the molds prior to filling , then they cook them in a larger version of the 'Beanzawave'
