Heinz Baked Beans
Advantages: TASTY AND QUALITY. RING PULL LID
Disadvantages: WEIRD AFTERTASTE AND EXPENSIVE
Heinz promotes themselves as offer 57 different varieties of food products. Their production ranges from hot foods such as Beans, Spaghetti and Macaroni to desserts such as Chocolate Sponge Pudding. They also have their own range of baby products.
Heinz is a trusted and well known brand and produces top quality food.
Heinz Baked Beans are promoted as being "baked beans in a deliciously rich tomato sauce".
Heinz Beans come in a rounded tin can which is easily recognisable by it's blue paper label. The can comes complete with a ring pull top (to me this signifies quality) so a tin opener is not needed.
The label has changed somewhat since the dooyoo picture was added. The Heinz Beanz logo and description/image is on the front. Other information on the can includes nutrition, ingredients, dietary details, storage and preparation guidelines. Heinz contact details are also present and the best before date can be found on the bottom of the tin.
Opening the tin will reveal an intense orange sauce which fills to the rim. About half an inch underneath the sauce, you will find an extensive portion of good sized baked beans smothered in the tomato sauce. The sauce is of a medium consistency.
Baked Beans can be cooked on the hob by emptying into a saucepan and stirring whilst heating. Take care not to overcook
They can als be popped into a microwavable container, covered and cooked for 2 1/2mins stirring at the 1 1/2mins marker.

When someone mentions Baked Beans, I think Heinz. It is a brand I trust and was brought up eating. I do not buy beans often as I much prefer spaghetti or beans and sausage. I spotted the multi packs on offer in Asda a few weeks ago and picked a pack up for the cupboard. The last tin was ate today.
Beans have many uses :
On a baked potato
With a fry up
On french toaste
With sausage and mash
It is a very vesatile product and can be altered by using some grated cheese on top as well. I find this works well with toast and baked potato and adds an extra little kick to it.
Hubby isn't keen on beans so I usually use the full 415g for myself. This is too much for a snack but for a meal it is perfect. Tonight I had it on 2 slices of toast.
I love having the ring pull top as I am not very good when it comes to tin openers! The sauce looks bright and smells very much like tomatoes which is what you expect from a high quality product. I pop mine in a dish and into the microwave whilst my toast is toasting. Once ready, these beans cool down really quick so serve them up and dig in!
Heinz certainly don't skimp on the beans or sauce. There is lots of beans and they are a reasonable size and soft yet firm. They melt in your mouth. The sauce is quite thick to start with but when cooked becomes slightly runnier in consistency. Having said that, it is a plenty and sticks to the beans nicely. The sauce isn't quite as rich as I remember from my childhood but nice all the same. After finishing the beans, there is plenty of sauce on my plate to mop up with a nice slice of butter toast.
What I would say is although I really enjoyed my meal (yes I am being lazy tonight), the sauce left a sort of sweet, sugary taste in my mouth which was a tad unpleasant but nothing a drink couldn't resolve.
So Heinz Beans aren't the cheapest when you look at store own brand such as Asda Smart Price at 29p for 420g but they taste of quality and this is something I won't compromise on. I am by no means a food snob but when it comes to beans, Beans Means Heinz!
Thanks for reading
