Alright then, we all know that Heinz make the best baked beans. But, let's face it, they're not the cheapest and in times like these, we all need to save some pennies. I have been experimenting with value and discount brands recently and thought I would share my experiences. Oak Lane, for the unaware, is a discount brand available at Tesco. It is a notch up from the 'Value' range with much more attractive packaging, but is still cheaper than their own brand. The beans can be found in the canned food section of Tesco, suprisingly enough, with the other baked beans. They are fairly easy to find as they come in a distinctive blue can with a picture of ...

Tesco sent us these Oak Lane baked beans as a substitute for their Value beans when we shopped online a couple of weeks ago. For beans on toast and over a jacket potato it's got to be Heinz or Branston beans but my mum always adds baked beans to stew so she buys a few tins of the Value ones just for that. I was glad the Oak Lane ones come though because I haven't tried them before, I had some on toast last night though and they're not very good I don't think. The sauce is dead thin and isn't rich at all, it's got a bit of a metal taste as well that wasn't very nice and spoilt the taste of them completely for me. The beans are a mixture of dead ...

While I genuinely feel that Heinz and Branston have the baked bean market cornered in terms of quality, the prices are not always great if you eat a lot of beans. Tesco's Value range do cheap beans, although the prices have been creeping up to the point where they are now 29p per can. This price is the same as the Oak Lane Baked Beans, Oak Lane being a range that Tesco have been stocking for a while now. They are designed to offer a cheaper alternative other than their Value range. Oak Lane Baked Beans come in a standard tin, much like any other baked bean tin. It's not the most appealing colour, being blue with the orange beans in a picture towards the bottom ... Read the complete review

Always on the lookout for a bargain and a way to save a few pennies I was pleased when I came across a new brand of beans in my local Tesco. Hubby just does not like the value beans so I was buying Tesco's own brand but as these can in at over 10p a can cheaper I decided to give them a go. ~~OAK LANE~~ Oak Lane are a new brand of foods which Tesco have taken on and advertise as their 'discount brand'. it is available on a lot of products in store and I have personally found every one which I have tried to be of good quality. The price of this brand always seems to match the Tesco Value price. ~~THE TIN~~ The beans come in the ... Read the complete review

I'm sure most of you, like me, seem to be constantly looking at ways of reducing the old food bills. My other half and I already pretty much live on jacket tattis and beans, and so are always looking out for offers to reduce the cost of these staples even more. So, when I saw Tesco's had a new Discount Brand in the baked bean section, I decided to give it a try. At 26p for a tin, Oak Lane Baked Beans are cheaper than the Tesco own version at 44p, and only pennies more than the Value versions, so I figured that even if they were only slightly nicer it was worth it. The tin looks fairly appetising, for a tin - blue with a picture of edible-looking beans on the ... Read the complete review
