There's some brands out there using MSG and artificial sweeteners, they must be the worst, unless that's more your thing.

Nice but give you the wind

I find that somewhat ironic seeing as tomatoes have elevated amounts of glutamate.

Agree 100% with debs8z...I bought the Heinz the other day but it was too runny and the beans tasted different, nothing can beat branston IMO

Cross and Blackwell have been fond of artificial flavourings and sweeteners.

OP - thanks for getting round to posting your deal - 6 days after seeing it...

I've never eaten beans (put off by the texture, bit like sweetcorn I thought) but recently had a full English somewhere and I thought they were quite nice (soft and didn't need any chewing)..

Can a beans expert recommend a brand for a beginner like me that I'll like?

Agree. Always used to buy Heinz, like the taste but now a third of the can is sauce.

Hot deal ....for beans but cold nearly a week old....post. . Will be expired now deal .

​I'm not sure what defines a beans expert.. But as I have at least 6+ tins a week I'll give it a go.
Personally I prefer the branded beans.
I'd give both Heinz and Branston a try.
Branston are my favourite after being a loyal Heinz fan for many years.
I'd say cooked in a saucepan is best, but they are perfectly fine in the microwave.
I'd not really recommend on their own so I'd do either toast or bacon etc. They're also nice with chips. (_;)

As said, I bought more today and the stack was still high of £1 marked packs. Looks like got more legs at this particular store which is the newly converted Spar ( from Nisa) in Heskin Chorley.

There was an attempt on Friday, but my wordy description disappeared when my login failed. I got annoyed and stormed off.. I apologise !

​I'd only eat cold if I was desperate. That's coming from a beans fan. I'd not recommend that to someone just starting out on a bean journey personally.

Heinz & Branston are always good quality. The cheaper non brands from the likes of Asda, Tesco, Lidl etc are not unappetising but generally inferior in tems of size of beans and thickness/ flavour of the sauce. But not so bad you wouldn't want to eat them.

Honourable mention to...(which is a really rather tasty, superior, healthy even, tin of beans):

Cheers folks, Heinz and Branston it is. I'll get a blind taste test set up with the missus and go from there.

Beans on toast with melted cheese on top mmmmm that's what I'm having for lunch

These are way better than Heinz, thicker sauce and way less sugar.

Lidl's beans have improved massively recently. The older Campo Largo tins (green and orange) were too watery and sugary. Their Newgate tins (red) taste similar to Branston in my opinion.

This is false. Branston beans are higher in sugar than Heinz.

Nicer than Heinz, too much sauce in Heinz.

personally I like them over marmite on toast and a sprinkling of grated cheese to finish off under the grill.....proper comfort food! scrummy!

We love lunch times ........what's on you plate .

Deal still going this evening at stated shop, so it's beans with everything for a while yet here... anyone found them at their local spar to confirm not store specific?

dunno

This is false. Branston beans are higher in sugar than Heinz.



Actually you're right - 5.7g (Branston) vs 5.0g (Heinz) sugar per 100g. Branston definitely have a more savoury, thicker flavour though, whereas the Heinz sauce tastes watery and sweet.

did anyone find this offer ?

It's still on this evening at Spar Heskin Lancashire. But Im suspecting is store specific with the shop being a new conversion to Spar...as an opening offer.

yep, I have been on the store finder and checked out the local stores, they think I am the crazy bean lady now as it didnt get as far as perma tanned Essex, we eat these to keep our colour lol xx
