If you're still prepared to pay it rather than buy cheaper ones, then they've got their pricing policy just right!

YABU to be INCENSED

There are more ahem, pressing things in the world to get het up about

And also, its still a meal for 4 people with toast wink

You should try buying them in America, $2 a tin

PenguinArmy Sat 11-Jun-11 22:15:31

which is double 64p

I've been incensed by the price of Heinz Baked Beans for a long time now. Hasn't stopped me buying them, but I try to stock up when they have special offers on.
FWIW, I'm incensed by the price of lots of food now. Seems there's very little which can be bought for under £1 anymore. sad

cybbo A tin of beans = a meal for four? hmm Not in my house grin

icecreaminmyhair Sat 11-Jun-11 22:17:24

Try nicking them instead grin

Heinz beans are one of the only branded products I think are worth the extra, (the others being Kellogs cornflakes and Roberts bread)

GypsyMoth Sat 11-Jun-11 22:19:47

4tins for a pound in poundland!!

GypsyMoth Sat 11-Jun-11 22:20:11

Roberts bread??

Happymm Sat 11-Jun-11 22:21:58

Heinz are the best though. Currently £1 fir a four pack in our local Spar grin

Never eaten baked beans but a tin of heinze ravioli is over a pound in the co-op now. What's Roberts bread.

I don't like Heinz beans but I do like beans. They do them in fridge-packs now for lazy people who don't have any plastic boxes / tupperware-type things in their kitchen cupboards. That'll help when you're on a strict budget hmm

Roberts is made in Cheshire I think. Much nicer and keeps fresher than Warburtons or Hovis. Far superior to supermarket bread

a meal for 4 out of one tin???? you must have the appetite of sparrows!! smile

Dont like heinz beans, always used to buy branded stuff but now i buy shops own discount range and i actually prefer them, they dont have that twang that heinz beans have, its the same for ketchup - we've simply been brainwashed into thinking they are the best is all

portaloo Sat 11-Jun-11 22:24:28

Happymm That is excellent value. I'd be checking the BB date and stocking up at that price.

Buy Sainsbury Basics or Tesco Value - they need cooking for longer (i.e. not just re-heating) but they're just as good and they are lower in calories.

Have you tried the store's own brand jazzed up with a few glugs of worcestershire sauce or chilli powder? Could even use HP/brown sauce if you like. My kids love it and keep pestering me for more.

ooohyouareawfulbutilikeyou Sat 11-Jun-11 22:27:53

value beans are minging, all water and no bean

but tesco own are ok

izzywhizzyletsgetbusy Sat 11-Jun-11 22:28:20

We rarely eat baked beans chez Izzy, but when the urge strikes I buy Branston as we prefer the taste - my last purchase was a special offer, 4 tins for £2.

Haven't seen Roberts bread on my local supermarket shelves (in London), but when buying packaged sliced white bread for sandwiches I'll always pay extra for Warburtons.

Cymar Sat 11-Jun-11 22:30:41

I'd recently read about a nutritional survey done on beaked beans and other branded and own brand products and Tesco Value baked beans (I'm nearly sure) came out tops for the least salt and sugar per tin than other tested brands.

tomhardyismydh Sat 11-Jun-11 22:30:46

get branston, far tastier and can often be picked up from £1 for 4 tins grin

elphabadefiesgravity Sat 11-Jun-11 22:32:41

I don;t like the taste of Branston ones.

I used to but own brand value ones when a student but dh eventually rebelled and I have to admit they were pouse.
