2016 Baked Beans - Not Impressed

Recommended Posts

Last week we finally finished our last tins of 2006-2008 baked bean stash. All from the major manufacturer beginning with "H". This week I purchased a new stock of beans and we just had some as part of our traditional Sunday Full English. I was shocked at the lack of beans and huge amount of very watery sauce. Not impressed in the slightest, does anyone have any surplus pre-2010 beans they are willing to flog?

Will happily swap for 2004 era chicken curry tins and Fray Bentos tinned gristle pies.

I have some 10 year old dust on my top of my kitchen cabinets, which probably contains worthwhile quantities of protein, essential animal and vegetable fats, and unspecified trace minerals. I think it might make a good soup base.

Very many brands have become diluted, massive shrinkage, cheaper ingredients, more water, thickenings, less weight, lower quality.......and they think we can't notice.

Last week my mate cleaned out a cupboard and was going to throw away past the sell by date tins......I was horrified and took them to open and use, perfect inside and good to eat.....for example: a tin of Italian tomatoes was crammed with fruit and thick tomato juice.....today the same tin has less tomato and thinner juice....proof if ever I saw it. ;)

How many beans do you get in a tin?

I no longer buy loo rolls on number.....I buy on weight....... ;)

Bread is another thing that people should be buying on weight rather than volume. Cheap bread is pumped full of air so that it looks bigger.

Not all loaves are created equal.

A bean, a bean, a half a bean, a bean, a bean and a half. ;)

Tis very true......full of air and pre frozen, light as a feather......the French would not tolerate it.....my homemade is min 800g per loaf.......the best bread is heavy bread.... ;)

High carbs and high sugar...

Sure carbs turn into sugar........grains and nuts are good for you, as long as you do not top up with refined sugars, and other cabs such as white rice and chips........good bread has good fibre and plenty of roughage...... ;)

I lost a bunch of weight once subsisting for a month on 2x daily "tacos" each comprising half a tin of beans and a slice of lightly buttered Mother's Pride Shame medium-sliced toast @ ~1000KCal total. They were surprisingly filling.

so you are inferring warren buffet already had placemen in Heinz:

1)to make the new recipe deliberately shite and lose sales

2)as per 1, drop the share price

3)step in with a knock-down offer, and then make it all better again by re-introducing(nearly) the original recipe?

well I've got a punt for him.

Tesco.

their own brand stuff has been getting steadily poorer quality of late.

My father has an entire chicken in a tin from the 1960s in his shed. It was passed down to him from his father and he intends to pass it down too.

Until very recently packed bread was only 400g or 800g.

Isn't 'pumped full of air' the thing about bread?

I have a vivid childhood memory about how baked beans tasted in the mid 80s.

I can't say I've ever tasted beans in my adult life that are even a shadow of that memory. I just don't bother eating baked beans any more.

We get through tons of beans. Heinz are consistently inferior to some supermarket own brands, but as said the water content does vary from can to can.

Try your own taste test.

We like Sainsburys best. Tesco are Ok (not the everyday ones which are foul).

Half the price of heinz tho a little higher in sugar.

Havent tried Aldi which are touch cheaper. Lidl are same price as Sainsbury's.
