      Nice enough and great quality once again from Heinz

      I love my grub and recently with moving and being so busy I have been eating more canned food than usual which I know before anyone says anything isn't all that good for me! However with time being short and me eating on the go I have been eating a lot of toast and been looking for quick things to shove on it.

      For years I have bought shops own branded products but lately I have noticed that the price of those has been creeping up and to be honest I've got sick of Asda and Tesco value beans and the likes anyway.

      I was brought up with Heinz and always have associated the brand with good quality which is recently why I have switched back and started paying out a little more to get some more tasty food into my belly.

      I had never seen Heinz beans with pork sausages before so when I spotted cans of it in my local Asda store in sizes 200g and 415g I bought myself the larger of the cans to try out.

      The packaging of this is nice enough and high quality in its appearance. Like I say I bought the 415g sized can but both that and the smaller can looked the same and it was only the size that was different really. My can had a blue label around it and on the front a photograph was shown of the beans and sausages and I was clearly told what it was and who it was by and then on the back of the can I was told a bit about the product, the ingredients and nutritional advice was stated as well as heating up instructions, the size was stated and contact details for Heinz given. There is a handy ringpull to the top of the can as well which I always appreciate!

      The Beans and Sausages:

      You get plenty of haricot beans in a thick and orangy coloured tomato sauce and in my large can I got about 7 mini sausages, think hot dog sausages out of a can and processed rather than a thick pork sausage or anything like that. You can heat these in the microwave or in a pan on the cooker the choice is yours I usually pop mine in a microwavable dish in the microwave though either way they only take a couple of minutes to heat through I just find I make less washing up that way to be honest lol.

      I really like this filling dish! The beans are soft but not squishy, the sauce is tomatoey but not too sweet or artificial in its flavour and the sausages hold well and to taste of pork but do have a soft and very processed texture to them however the whole thing works and on toast because the sauce is smooth and thick doesn't saturate and ruin it and of course you can use this as a side dish too to perk up a meal.

      The quality is great, the flavours work well together and its filling with only 104 calories per 100g serving which I think is great. I bought my 415g can for about 85p in Asda which seems the going price though do look out for Heinz cans on offer as I do!

      Thumbs up once again to Heinz!

      A tin with beans and sausages in

      When you are looking for a quick snack or a light meal you can't beat something on toast like beans, spaghetti or an egg cooked in some way and my colleague at work has tomatoes on his toast which at some point I am definitely going to have to try as the smell is gradually tempting me. As a child I often had beans and spaghetti on mine but it was a complete revelation to discover that I could have beans with small sausages in at the same time. You can of course find less expensive versions and own label offerings but I have said it before and I will say it again that you can't better the Heinz brand.

      Having said that you only get what you pay for as currently with Tesco a 415g tin of these is £1.07 which does seem a little steep as I don't remember them being over a pound the last time I bought some and it wasn't that long ago at all. Probably best then to pick these up when on promotion or in multipacks as being in tins they can be kept for months in your kitchen cupboards anyway.

      This is such a simple foodstuff but so tasty and can be enjoyed by children and adults alike. The beans are what you would expect from this company and the rich thick tomato sauce is ever present blowing out of the water the thinner sauce that you often find in tins of cheaper brands. I love the way the sauce doesn't quite mix with the butter or spread on your toast kind of like the way oil floats on the top of water, this brings back memories for me of eating lunch around my grandparents. The sausages are probably no larger than an inch long and they are pork and appear to be of good quality, at first glance they seem to be similar to hot dog sausages but on tasting you realise that they are very different. The sausages are very soft and the combination of the beans tomato sauce and these is awesome.

        Great for a quick lunch

        Since being a child, I have always eaten Heinz products, whether it be the original beans, their range of soups or their sauces, and I cannot remember ever having any complaints about the products and that still hasn't changed.
        As a student, I find these beans and sausages ideal as they take no longer than ten minutes to make a very filling and hearty dinner. With them being in a tin, it makes it very simple to take a can to college with me, without the worry that they will get damaged while clunking round in my bag all day!
        On to the actual taste, in my opinion they can't be beaten. The traditional Heinz tomato sauce, with the filling beans and then small, bitesize pork sausages are a match made in heaven. Even so, having looked at the ingredients of the sausages, they are blatently packed with fillers to get out of spending on actual good pork for them, which is a shame as this does put some of my friends of eating them but for the cheap, reasonable price that they are, I think this is only what can be expected.
        At the end of the day, there is a lot more worse things that we can be eating, like pizza and doughnuts every dinnertime, and for the price that they are I think they are a very good cupboard staple.

          Disadvantages

          Every home should have one!

          Going by the much catchier and more fun to say name "Pork 'n' Beans" in America, Heinz beans and sausages are an excellent mix of baked beans in the standard, to be expected tomato sauce, and small pork chipolata sausages.

          These extremely cheap tinned goods are actually pretty good for you, despite the sausages being made of somewhat inferior meat. This foodstuff complements all different kinds of meals, from cholesterol fuelled full English breakfasts to cheap, simple to make studentish "Beans on toast" but with sausages.

          Completely microwaveable this is a brilliant diverse tinned good that definitely isn't to be sniffed at. It is rich in fibre and will without a doubt aid digestion provided it is consumed in moderation. Needless to say, the packaging is great, with the familiar and trustworthy "Heinz" logo standing out of the air tight tin's label. Heinz are without a doubt the best brand you can go for in terms of buying this particularly delicious nutritional meal, since the pork sausages are an greater quantity and proportion to the beans than the kind of thing that you might expect to get in the cheaper labels.
          Heinz is pretty much always superior, whether you're buying soups or anything, but in with this tomato bean and sausage item it definitely shows a whole lot. You also get great value for money and great taste.

          I definitely recommend this product to anyone looking to make a simple meal, or a deliciously greasy one. Great stuff.

            Heinz gets it right again.

            I am not a person that will always buy brand names, I am always willing to try cheaper brands in a bid to save money. There are however some brands that just cannot be beaten and Heinz has got to be one of those brands. If Heinz make it then you can be sure I won't be buying a cheaper alternative. Beans, spaghetti, tomato sauce, soup etc..all of which I buy Heinz. Out of all the different varities they sell I'm sure there is something for everyone.

            Heinz Baked Beans Pork Sausages are one of my favourite things that Heinz make. I love their baked beans anyway but them little sausages they put in are just delicious. I know it's really basic food but sometimes simple is all you want.

            Heinz Baked Beans Pork Sausages come in a 415g tin. The tin looks identical to a tin of beans apart from the little picture on the front has a sausage with the beans. It also does say "with pork sausages in a rich tomato sauce". They could easily be mistaken for a tin of Heinz Beans though.

            A 415g tin costs between 80p and 90p depending on where you buy them from. I think this is slightly expensive and usually try and buy them when they're on special offer. I think the price of Heinz Beans are too expensive though, I suppose they can charge what they want when there isn't really any competition from other brands.

            In the 415g tin you get exactly 8 sausages, I know this because if I'm giving beans and sausages to my boys to eat then I always have to make sure I share them out equally to avoid arguments.

            When it comes to taste I think the sausages are really tasty, they have a loverly soft texture. The only complaint I can make about this product is that the sausages seem to affect the taste of the beans. The beans kind of taste of the sausage instead of tasting like beans. Now I don't mind this difference but my husband will not eat these beans because of this.

            Heinz Baked Beans Pork Sausages are easy to heat. You can either heat them on the hob in a saucepan or using a microwave. I tend to heat them on the hob because I think that way you know they are throughly warm. The beans take a lot less heating than the sausages, therefore I think the hob is the most effective way of warming them up.

            The nutritional information tells you that in half a can there is:
            193 calories
            11.0g protein
            22.0g carbohydrate
            6.8g fat
            5.6g fibre
            0.8g sodium

            It does advertise on the packaging that the beans and sausages are a "source of fibre" and "low in sugar".

            In conclusion I think Heinz Baked Beans Pork Sausages are a tasty product from Heinz that are quite nutritious and very convenient. If you can't be bothered to cook but don't want to eat junk then treat yourself to some tasty beans and sausages on toast.

              Not for me

              Heinz beans and pork sausages initially seems like an ideal topper for toast.
              But delve a little deeper and I have my reservations.
              Heinz are a huge brand and a leader in their field but I think there is something wrong with this product and have done for years.
              It may be just me but the thing I can`t get past is the seemingly thinner sauce (compared to a tin of heinz beans), and the fact that the beans are always hard.
              Far be it from me to question Heinz, but do they use a different preservation or emulsifiers for this product?
              Looking at the ingredients on a tin of beans opposed to beans and sausages the answer would seem "Yes". Ordinary baked beans do not contain pea starch or emulsifiers-Tri, Poly-and Diphosphates. I`ve googled this and they are preservatives. It is my view that this has an effect on the quality of the beans.
              Frankly, I think most people would agree that what they like about this product is the little sausages and not the beans.
              I`m sorry if this comes across as a carping review but I feel that food is being spoiled for the sake of profit.

                You get exactly what it says on the tin...

                Still on my quest to eat healthier and sensibly today I decided to make do with a simple Sunday dinner of beans on toast. Rather than simply sticking to a regular boring tin of beans I opted for the far more luxurious and decadent Heinz Baked Beans WITH pork sausages - Oh yes!

                Housed in the familiar and recognisable turquoise can and currently on offer with Morrisons giving you two tins for £1.50 these have been around for years and I'm sure the vast majority of readers will know the Heinz brand and what to expect from their offerings.

                Conveniently supplied with a ring pull rather than having to find a tin opener you are met with the standard sight of orange beans served in a rich, red tomato sauce, the sausages aren't that appealing to look at really being a washed out grey colour, but it's the taste that counts after all. Easy to prepare, either bung in the microwave for a couple of minutes or warm through gently in a pan they are quick and easy to cook and within minutes my dinner was ready to eat.

                Cooked through the sausages remained the same colour but thankfully the sauce goes a long way in making them more pleasing to the eye, the beans are what you would expect from Heinz and the tomato sauce was rich and tasty and as usual make a hot tasty meal to enjoy. The combination of the beans and sausage made for a filling, hot and satisfying meal that I must say warmed me through and gave me a full stomach.

                The sausages are meaty and although aren't exactly packed with flavour they did provide an extra bulkiness to the beans; I counted 8 in the tin and admit to eating the lot to myself, theyre not massively huge though!. The contents of the tin would easily make two meals if you wanted to share but as my wife wasn't bothered it meant all the more for me.

                Nutrition wise, and the reason I had these today is that a serving (half a can) provides only 193 calories, 2.6 grams of saturated fat, 8.4 grams of sugar and 2.1 grams of salt. So although I had the full can to myself and probably had a little too much sugar and salt it will be my main meal of the day so I'm not overly concerned.

                Ingredients reveal nothing untoward, but will include them here for the sake of submitting all relevant information: Beans (35%), Tomatoes (24%), Water, Pork Sausages (17%), Sugar, Glucose-fructose Syrup, Modified Cornflour, Salt, Spirit Vinegar, Spice Extracts, and Herb Extract.
                Pork Sausages: (Pork (65%), Water, Pea Starch, Salt, Spice Extracts, Spice, Emulsifier - Tri-, Poly- and Diphosphates.)

                Allergy warnings advise that these are suitable for all (apart from vegetarians - obviously!) as they are gluten free.

                I have to say I did thoroughly enjoy my dinner today; yes it was as basic as you can probably get in the kitchen but I had a (relatively) healthy, hearty, satisfying meal that filled me up and warmed me through. At this time of the year you can't ask for much more than that.

                I would normally give these 5/5 Dooyoo stars they are exactly as described and you really can't go wrong with Heinz, but due to the rather unappealing look of the sausages I will deduct a star, even so they still rate a perfectly acceptable 4/5 Dooyoo stars with me.

                  The best of the lot

                  I am a fan of trying to prove that the popular brands and makes are of no advantage to the cheaper alternative. Because of this I have been trying all the different beans and sausages combinations out there. This includes Sainsbury's, Morrisons, Safeways, Tesco... etc. It even includes the Asda baked beans and sausages which are supposed be made by Heinz them selves. Let me tell you though that these beanz are mean beanz.

                  Nothing quite compares to the texture and flavour of this succulent and sumptuous tinned meal. Although Heinz is an American food company it sells and promotes its product in the United Kingdom. It is renound for it's 57 varieties slogan but I believe there may be even more. And out of these wonderful products the Baked Beans and Pork Sausages are in my top 5.

                  The price of this tin fluctuates massively from shop to shop. As far as I know you can obtain them from 82p to up to £1.39! Where does this range of price come from people considering super market brands can be bought for as cheaply as 15 pennies!

                  Ahhh.. this tin contains 415g of scrumtious, prime product which goes wonderfully with buttered toast in these cold winters months. I am a student, as you regular readers may know about me. You may also know I am lazy and like to try out all different exotic foods. For the last 4 days I have eaten 4 sets of Baked Beans and sausages with toast and today It was Heinz's turn and it was heaven.

                  The sausages are tastier, the sauce is saucier and the beans are a delight to munch on. In many cases the sauce can be too watery or the beans can be of the wrong texture. This was not the case with todays meal. I encourage people to buy cheap brands and fight agains monopolies but in this case you just can't win. Saying that the tin doesn't stack well. Other tins slot into each other perfectly and you can stack them in your shelf perfectly but Heinz needs to work on this! What is the deal Heinz? Do you not want us to have organised cupboards? Sort it out!

                  An excellent idea!

                  Heinz Baked Beans Pork Sausages

                  Description: Manufacturer: Heinz / Ready Meals


                  This product has been around for years and in my opinion, still tastes as good as it always did. A 415g tin cost me £0.87 from my local supermarket and can be found in most shops and supermarkets. It comes in a turquoise coloured tin with a darker blue label and the Heinz logo on the front.

                  This tin has a pull off lid so no need to look for a tin opener and can be heated in a saucepan on the hob, or put into the microwave for around 2 and a half minutes (check and stir half way through cooking).

                  The tomato sauce that this product comes in has a tasty and appetising smell and looks a great orange colour. The beans are plump and tasty looking and there are 8 mini pork sausages in each tin.

                  The beans are a great consistency, firm but soft and the sauce is lovely and rich. The little sausages are lovely and soft (but not at all soggy) and practically melt in your mouth. The sauce is also seasoned well, but adding a sprinkle of black pepper makes it even better.

                  Nutritional information is as follows;

                  193 Calories
                  11.0g Protein
                  22.0g Carbohydrate
                  6.8g Fat
                  5.6g Fibre
                  0.8g Sodium
                  2.1g Salt equivalent

                  I find that with a couple of slices of buttered toast (one underneath the beans and one sliced and placed around the edge!) this is a delicious and convenient meal. It is ready quickly and is not too bad for you, it also tastes great poured over a baked potato, especially with grated cheese - mmmhh!

                    Beanz Meanz Snackz!!

                    Any regular readers of my reviews will know by now that I like to keep small snacks in my cupboard as I often cannot manage a full sized evening meal, and much prefer to eat a snack most of the time. Also, as I have problems with my mobility, I often need to rely on something quick and easy for my evening meal as there are a lot of times that I struggle to make myself something 'half decent'.

                    For these reasons, I always have a well-stocked larder, in terms of tinned goods and meals, which means that I have food to fall back on should either my appetite or my mobility be having an 'off day'.

                    I find that beans on toast and similar snacks can often become a bit boring though, so with this in mind I was keen to look out for something a bit different when I was shopping in my local grocery store. To be honest, the grocers didn't have too much to offer in the way of tinned goods, but I eventually picked up a tin of the "Heinz Beanz with Pork Sausages" as I hadn't had them for a long time, and I thought it would make a nice change than tinned spaghetti or plain baked beans with toast.

                    The tin is a generous size - 415g, and for this I paid the sum of 85 pence. Seeing as I actually got two servings from the tin, and it therefore provided enough for me to have a snack-sized meal for two days in a row, I thought that this price offered very good value.

                    The packaging, or label to the (recyclable steel) tin is a bright blue turquoise type colour, which is similar to the colour of label on the 'usual' tins of baked beans. I can see quite clearly that the product is being marketed as being 'reasonably' good for me, as there are some bold statements to the rear of the label, such as "Low in Sugar" and "Source of Fibre". This surprised me a little, as I generally think tins of food similar to this one generally veer towards being junk food.

                    There are instructions on the reverse of the tin for both cooking the beans and sausages on the hob as well as the microwave. I opted to cook the contents of the tin by microwave on this occasion, so I plopped the contents of the tin into a suitable container and was immediately impressed by the look of both the beans and the sausages. There were eight little sausages in total, which were quite small, but I had expected this, so this wasn't a disappointment. The beans looked quite appetising, and the sauce was a rich orange colour which looked to be quite thick.

                    I wasn't aware of any particularly appetising smells wafting from the microwave as I heated my snack! There was pretty much no smell at all, or none that I could tell anyway. I stopped the cooking time halfway through to give it all a good stir and was pleased that it looked to be quite appetising on the whole.

                    The food looked lovely once I had assembled it onto my plate alongside some freshly buttered toast. I noted again that there was no huge smell wafting up from the plateful of food, but it certainly looked appetising and tasty, and I thought that the sausages in particular looked to be quite delicious, especially when compared to supermarket-own brand versions of this snack, as these often seem to have a bit of a 'grey' appearance to them.

                    When it came to eating the beans and sausage combo, I found that the beans were of a nice consistency and had a nice 'bite' to them without being overly hard. They were nice and soft in the middle, without being mushy. These were complimented quite nicely by the tomato sauce which seemed to be quite richly-flavoured and had a stronger flavour than say a supermarket-own branded product, but again I would say that this is generally to be expected if comparing a 'premium' type brand such as Heinz to a shop's-own brand.

                    The sausages were quite nice, although I didn't find them to be overly tasty. The texture was very pleasant, and I was pleased to note that there were no hard 'bits' in the sausages, and neither was there any discovery of any gristle or anything. The sausages too had a nice 'bite' to them. The only downside as I said was that I really felt there was something lacking in terms of their flavour. Whether this is because the product is now healthier than it used to be 'Low in Sugar' and 'No artificial flavours' possibly being the main culprits, or whether they have always tasted like this I cannot say, but I really just felt that the sausages were a little disappointing.

                    That said, I quite happily polished off the tin in two sittings, and to be fair I would probably buy it again. I found it to be quite a filling snack, and for the most part I was fairly satisfied in terms of my hunger and appetite, it's just a shame the little sausages let it down somewhat.

                    The nutritional information on the reverse of the can informs me that half a can of the Heinz snack will provide 193 calories and 6.8g of fat, which didn't seem too bad considering how filling I felt it was. I can also see that the product is suitable for a gluten-free diet.

                    I would award the beans and sausages four dooyoo stars, with one star knocked off for the points I mentioned above. The tinned snack is available to buy in all good grocery stores and supermarkets such as Tesco and Asda. There is also a smaller version of the tinned Heinz beans and sausages available to buy as well as the larger-sized tin.

                      Well worth buying

                      Heinz Baked Beans Pork Sausages

                      Description: Manufacturer: Heinz / Ready Meals / 415g

                      These have been around for absolutely ages, they remind me of being a kid so every now and again, I have them on toast and they still taste just as good as they used to.

                      Like the name suggests, this is a tin of Heinz baked beans with 8 little pork sausages in there too. The sausages are soft (which doesn't sound like it should be nice, but actually is!) and go really well with the beans in tomato sauce (really good tomato sauce, rich and thick) - great on toast with a sprinkle of grated cheese.

                      All you have to do is gently warm them in a saucepan (stirring gently) or heat them for a couple of minutes in the microwave (I use the microwave as it's faster). Then serve and enjoy.

                      Nutritional Information:

                      Per Half Can:

                      193 Calories
                      11.0g Protein
                      22.0g Carbohydrate
                      6.8g Fat
                      5.6g Fibre
                      0.8g Sodium
                      2.1g Salt equivalent

                      I find that 1 tin serves 2 on toast, and the calorie & fat content isn't that bad either. A tasty and filling quick lunch in minutes which should be popular with kids and adults alike.

                      There is more information on this and other Heinz products on their website (also loads of great recipes) so why not have a look;

                      http://www.heinzbeanz.com/products/heinz_baked_beanz.aspx

                      Do I recommend these, I most certainly do, they are great. Because they are tinned, they last for ages in the cupboard and you can find them in most shops. A tin costs around £0.95 but can often be found on offer so it is worth stocking up and stashing as a handy, fast lunch option which is also tasty!

                        A Filling And Yummy Lunch

                        These beans and pork sausages on toast makes a cracking filling lunch now it's getting so cold. I've not had them for ages but today I just fancied it so went to the shop round the corner and brought a tin for £1.39 which I think is dear but ok value for money.

                        You get 6 or 8 little sausages in the tin, I can't remember now and I've scoffed them all so can't count them now! lol

                        The beans are normal Heinz baked beans and come in a rich and thick tomato sauce, the sauce is a bit saltier because of the sausages in it but it's got a proper rich tomato taste. The beans are soft but quite firm at the same time and have got the perfect texture for beans I reckon.

                        The sausages are yummy. I know these sorts of sausages aren't the best quality ever but I love these ones in this tin because they taste porkier than other beans and sausages in tins and have got a nice meaty texture. They still feel like hot dog sausages but they are yummy and go so well with the beans and sauce.

                        I had mine on toast but I reckon they would go nice on a jacket potato as well. They are very filling and even though I was a pig and had the whole tin I could have filled myself up on half the tin with the 2 toasts I had.

                          A Fantastic Can Of Baked Beans & Pork Sausages.

                          I purchased my Heinz baked beans with pork sausages from my local Sainsburys for 90p but these can be purchased cheaper on occasion so I usually keep my eyes peeled for special offers as I love Heinz products.

                          The can size is standard and contains 415g of baked beans in tomato sauce with pork sausages and there is a good distribution of pork sausages and baked beans in a rich tomato sauce.

                          This product is from Heinz who has been established since 1869.

                          Baked beans with pork sausages are a nice meal as on toast or even as an accompaniment to a main meal. Also, these are fantastic if you go camping as the cans normally have a ring pull (even if they don't you can just take a can opener) and then you can heat these up and these really are a meal on their own with some bread or toast if you have the facility.

                          I personally prefer to have mine with white toasted bread and I let the bread cool a little before I butter it to ensure that the toast doesn't go too soggy.

                          These can be cooked on the hob in a saucepan or in the microwave for about 3 minutes and I always wait until they are steaming before serving.

                          I personally prefer to cook mine in the microwave and I cover the bowl with a plate to avoid any mess in the microwave, then you only have a few things to wash up and that's always a great time saver!

                          The beans are lovely and the sauce is lovely and full of flavour, it's a rich tomato style sauce and the pork sausages are quite meaty and have a hot dog style consistency to them.

                          I would recommend this product as it's a great snack or great as part of a main meal.

                          Nutritional Information:

                          Per Half Can:

                          193 Calories
                          11.0g Protein
                          22.0g Carbohydrate
                          6.8g Fat (very low fat - great!)
                          5.6g Fibre
                          0.8g Sodium
                          2.1g Salt equivalent.

                          This product is fairly high in salt but you can always purchase the can which has lower salt, sugar and fat although personally I find that these are the better tasting beans but the pork sausages seem to be the same whatever!

                          These are great and I'm a huge fan of Heinz products so these baked beans with pork sausages are going to get a 4/5 from me as they are delicious but I've knocked one star off because of the very high price.

                          Disadvantages

                          .

                          All I really wanted last night was a Baked Potato. I try different things on them, but my favourite is normally Cheese, Beans and a splodge of Coleslaw. Sometimes i've dumped a tin of Chicken Curry into a Baked Potato - even through my hubby says this sounds rotten - it's actually nice. So up the Baked Bean aisle I went for these, so I got the benefit of Beans, the loveliness of the Sauce to soak into the Potato and some Sausages to make things more interesting.

                          The size of the tin was 415g and cost 98p at Asda. I used the whole tin and it was enough with my 2 Small Baked Potatoes - I could not find a decent sized one last night!

                          The packaging was alright. Instead of the normal looking tin which is pictured here, and what is normally sold like, this was packaged like the front page of a Newspaper with it saying Saucy edition. The product inside wasn't any different, but the label looked alright and not so boring. The main colour on the can is a turquoise and the writing is in black with the odd white bit on it. The Heinz brand is easy to see as well on this. This has a ring pull, so easy enough to open.

                          I put the whole tin in a bowl and Microwaved for 2 minutes, but you can heat in a pan as well. It was just easy and less fuss to Micro while I was sorting the Potatoes.

                          There was 6 Sausages in here, a couple more than I was expecting. They were approx the lenght of my index finger, and although not really that thick, were thick enough and not too skinny or that. There was a good amount of Beans and the Sauce was a nice light tasting Tomato. The Sauce is always really runny, and I wouldn't grumble if it was a little thicker, but this is what it is.

                          Unfortunately the tin has been launched, but I think the calories per 415g is around 430 and the fat is pretty low, but I cannot comment properly.

                          A nice change and an extra bit food for my Potato. Heinz Beans are always nicer than any other brand i've tried!

                            Disadvantages

                            an essential for your cupboards

                            Heinz baked beans. A family favourite, and arguably the only baked beans worth eating. Some brand name products can be replaced easily with a supermarket own brand, but as far as I'm concerned - you can't say the same about Heinz beans - the one and only contender!

                            But what about Heinz beans with pork sausages? Well, this will obviously cost you a bit more than your standard can of beans. A 415g tin costs between 70p and 82p depending on where you shop. Not cheap but it depends on whether you want to compromise in taste for a supermarket own brand. Personally, I don't.

                            This product gets tastier the hungrier you are to be honest. Sometimes, when placed over warm buttered toast, it really hits the spot. But at other times, when I really think about what I am eating, the pork sausages taste, well - a bit naff. Plastic, almost. Plus, if you think about it, although beans are nutritionally good for you, there is a lot of sugar and salt in this product which you need to consider.

                            But this product is great for the occassional breakfast or when there is nothing else worth eating in the fridge. I recommend topping your beans on toast and sausages with a sprinkling of cheese and ground black pepper.

                            Mmmm - posh beans and sausages on toast!

                            It's worthwhile checking out the Heinz website, www.heinz.co.uk which has trivia 'baked bean facts' and plenty of recepies to try. Who would have thought you could make so many different meals out of beans and sausages!

                            Here's one recipie which I took from the website which readers might find useful. I think that most kids might enjoys this one:
