You can learn extra life-style tales from Daily Star right here. reporter Ashley Summerfield did the last word style check to work out which grocery store model sells the tastiest baked beans. Here’s what she thought…

Baked beans
Heinz Beanz is a cult traditional

Heinz Beanz

The American meals processing firm started making its iconic beans in 1886, and since 2008, they’ve been offered within the UK beneath the title Heinz Beanz.

I picked up a tin for £1.40; whereas that may not sound outrageous, it’s if you evaluate it to the worth of a few of the different beans. Depending on the grocery store, one tin can vary in worth from 90p to £1.40.

Its orange-red sauce has the right consistency, and its tomatoey style is magnificent. It is the right meal for breakfast, lunch, dinner, supper, a snack, and naturally, a campfire.

Can Heinz be matched and even crushed? I hope so, as a result of in any other case, the entire “own-brand” debate is in jeopardy. Yes, there’s a lot driving on this style check.

Anyway, I digress; 9/10, it’s a traditional for a motive.


I paid an affordable 50p for Tesco’s own-brand beans. Right from the onset, I may inform a distinction between Heinz and Tesco.

The beans are lighter in color, and the sauce is runnier. After tucking in, I used to be neither blown away nor upset. They’re not as tomatoey as Heinz, and on the whole, there’s much less flavour.

However, for the worth, they’re first rate, and you possibly can at all times improve the style by including some ketchup or spices.

I’d give them a 6/10.

Baked beans
We gave our verdict on the Tesco beans


At 44p, Sainsbury’s baked beans are the most cost effective of the lot, and boy do they compete with Heinz. The sauce is a darkish orange-red and has a thicker consistency than Tesco, however not as thick as Heinz.

When it involves its style, it’s just like Heinz – good and tomatoey – however is barely sweeter.

I’m giving Sainsbury’s an 8/10.

While that is one level decrease than Heinz, it’s a complete pound cheaper, so any longer I might be popping to Sainsbury’s for my baked beans.


I forked out 49p for Morrison’s own-brand. After slapping the beans on my toast, I sat at my eating room desk (my couch) with my head in my arms.

I used to be in a bean coma; I didn’t wish to go on. But I’m glad I did – properly, that’s what I’d have stated had they “bean” any good.

The beans are darker than Tesco’s however lighter in color than Heinz and Sainsbury’s. When it involves the sauce, it’s too runny. Anyway, it was time to style them.

After consuming a mouthful, I used to be upset. Where is the flavour? Fine, there’s some, however it’s mind-numbingly boring. That being stated, you possibly can add one thing to the beans to provide them flavour.

4/10 – unsatisfactory – I can’t be recommending these beans to Jack.

I handed over 50p for Asda’s baked beans. They are an analogous color to Morrisons, however fortunately that’s the place the comparisons finish. There is a tomatoey flavour there, however it’s distant however positively there.

It is barely too runny, however is that even a unfavorable? I’ve been portraying it as a strike towards the beans all through this piece, however you, the reader, would possibly like that.

Finishing on a reasonably optimistic observe, I’d give Asda a 6/10.


Heinz are the most effective, however we already knew that going into this. However, Sainsbury’s does an incredible job, and it solely prices 44p.

You may purchase three tins for £1.32, which is simply 8p lower than one tin of Heinz!
