Own Brand Baked Beans Recommendation, Please
My wife has decided to try an alternative to Heinz as she thinks the price is now silly. She buys either the small 200g tins or the snackpots, depending on which is cheaper.
Are Tesco beans any good?

Avoid small tins, pricewise they are far too expensive compared to the 'normal' sized tins. Buy them instead and use over two days.
I can not recall what we get so I'm interested in the answers here, but can not advise at present. However, Heinz can't even spell "beans" correctly so no wonder they don't have the intellect to have retained the taste of their beans. It's not the price that puts me off that brand, it's that they wrecked their flavour ages ago.
Barry, can I suggest you look at Tesco website before you go shopping where you can see the price of all the baked beans that they sell? It's easier to see the special offers this way as well.
At the moment, you can get 6 tins of Heinz baked beans for £4.75 which works out at .79p a tin.
You can also compare to other beans like Branston, Tesco and Stockwell which are ridiculously cheap.
Ask the missus to give the Stockwell a go, they are only .28p for a large tin, so even if she doesn't like them, it won't break the bank to throw them away.
I recently bought their rice pudding which is 25p a tin (don't know how they do it) and it wasn't too bad at all. Thinner than Ambrosia but after opening the tin, I poured some of the milk off and the rest was fine.
