Advantages: Easily combined with other foods, great taste and texture
In the beginning
Although Heinz Baked Beanz first appeared on shelves in Britain in 1886, it took another 40 years before they were actually made here in the UK. Like our Cream of Tomato Soup, Beanz were first imported from Canada until 1928 when the first British-made Heinz Baked Beanz went on sale.

Heinz Baked beans are essentially made from Haricot Beans and a secret Heinz Tomato based secret recipe and Haricot Beans are a reputed to be a good source of Copper, Iron, Protein and Vitamin B1.
Baked beans have been a favourite of mine since childhood and I find them a great semi healthy alternative to cooking a meal from scratch. I find that Baked beans are filling yet still tasty, I can only describe the taste as my palette discern it but, I always find that the tomato isn't overpowering and I don't seem to be able to detect an overwhelming sugar or salt flavour despite being aware that both are present in the ingredients.
Baked beans are a perfect accompaniment to Toast, Jacket Potato and I also think Veggie sausages and mash with beans is a favourite.
Overall, I would say that for a quick and easy meal, beans are a good choice not only for the nutritional benefits, but for the taste and texture, I have braved other brands and found myself surprisingly disappointed. The balance between beans and sauce with Heinz is just right and the taste and texture never fail to please.
A great product which has lasted through the ages and appears to be a consumer favourite. Highly adaptable when used in conjunction with most other food especially Carbohydrates
Baked beans are a quality product .
Summary: A great product which has lasted through the ages and appears to be a consumer favourite.
