Branston Baked Beans
Advantages: very good vlaue when on offer, thick rich sauce, soft beans
Baked beans are one of the staples that I keep in my kitchen cupboards all the time, they are so cheap, easy and versatile. So when premier foods launched Branston baked beans in 2005 I was eager to try them and they have been my firm favourite since.
Now I am a little bit of a bargain hunter and hate having to pay full price for anything and this is certainly a case with baked beans. As the Branston ones are my favourite I will wait until they are on a good special offer and stock up. The last time I purchased them was a couple of months ago when they were priced at just £1.00 for a multi-pack of 4x410g tins. This was a fantastic bargain as a single tin currently costs £0.50 but I have seen them on sale for even more.
The baked beans come in a metal can, the only downside to these beans is that they do not have a ring pull top so you do need to get your tin opener out. The can has a paper label wrapped around it which contains all the necessary information you need to know about the beans on including cooking instructions, ingredients listings, storage instructions and nutritional information.
Baked beans are basically beans in a tomato sauce they go with so many meals, the most simple is beans on toast but they also act as a great accompaniment to many meals. It states on the label that they are 'a good source of fibre, low in fat and are great as part of a balanced diet'. They are also really easy to cook, just simply warm them in a sauce pan or a microwaveable container for a couple of minutes until heated but not boiling as this can impair the flavour.
Each 205g (half tin) serving of the baked beans contains the following nutritional information:
Calories - 201
Protein - 9.8g
Carbohydrate - 33.0g
Sugars - 21.1
Fat - 0.8g
Fibre - 11.3g
These baked beans although contain quite a large amount of sugar still have some good nutritional elements and if eaten as part of a balance diet as with most things are fine. The thing I like most about these beans is that the sauce is much thicker than may other baked beans and quite rich tasting. The beans themselves are also nice and soft. Personally I think these are the best baked beans by far and I would certainly recommend them and continue to buy them in the future.
Summary: A brilliant, tasty cupboard essential!
