I have known the brand 'Heinz' for many years, so for the Christmas order, why not try 'Branston'. So I did... they have a lovely colour, a great texture, thick sauce and are extremely tasty. It certainly made a change from buying baked beans made in France to which you have to add quite a few ingredients to give taste. I definitely would order this brand again.
Branston Baked Beans is a perfect staple for the pantry! Stumped on what to cook? Grab a can and whip up beans on toast, jacket potato, and let's not forget the full English breakfast! The sauce is thick and tasty, unlike some other watery baked bean brands. Branston's is definitely a superior baked beans product!
Branston Baked Beans are the successors to HP Baked Beans. HP beans had a great following and were rivals to Heinz Baked Beans. The (then) makers of HP Baked Beans lost the licence to market and sell the HP brand in 2006 or thereabouts. Instead of exiting the market they launched Branston Baked Beans, which to all extents and purposes appear to be the same as HP baked beans. I certainly can't tell the difference. To me, they are worthy successors to HP Baked Beans, and I buy them in preference to the 'watery' Heinz offering every time.
If you are used to buying Heinz, and are worried about buying a different brand of beans, don't be. I can say without doubt that these are just as tasty, if not slightly better.
Be warned however, if using a tin opener is not your strong suit then I would maybe recommend sticking to easy open cans of Heinz.
Let's face it, we're going to compare these to Heinz, and since Heinz is what we know, a deviation from this standard is a risk for manufacturer and consumer. Is there a difference? Yes, a subtle one.
Heinz have recently seemed rather slushy to me, straight out of the tin. With some cheap makes, it's as if they saved energy on cooking them for long enough, because they are like pellets without much penetration from the sauce.
In my view, Branston have got it just right and are an improvement, yes a preference, over Heinz. They are just that little bit firmer, but just a tad. The sauce seemed about the same, but also less slushy.
Branston's beans seem to have that little more substance and wholesomeness about them, and I think they set the new benchmark. Beware if you live in the middle of nowhere with poor equipment -- no ring pull, so you need a can opener.
Branston Baked Beans are not the most well known brand of baked beans, but these are the most flavourful ones I have tasted.
Very firm in texture, you actually get whole beans in a tomato sauce out of the can. Very enjoyable just as they are, but in case you want to make a more filling meal, then add some sausages.
Hey guys, Branston Baked Beans in tomato sauce are perfect for a real English breakfast. Have them with some toast with salted butter, some poached eggs, some bacon and sausages and some brown sauce. It is true, that it is a little difficult to open the tin, but when open you will definitely enjoy it.
These beans gave me a pleasant surprise. I bought them and we did a taste test against other varieties. I have to say we all preferred these beans over other, more famous brand names.
The one thing that let it down was the fact it did not have an easy open tin.
I agree that I would have preferred the snap top, it's just quicker and easier. I found the flavour slightly different from the HP variety, maybe slightly spicier, but I prefer the latter. Branston make a fab pickle, but their beans are nothing in particular so I wouldn't make a point of buying these again.
I'm taking a point off this rating only because the product doesn't have a snap-open tin.
The beans inside are delicious and I must say I can't tell the difference between them and the other big top brand. The cost is usually more or less the same too. So if both are available I will usually go for the one with the snap top and not this one.
Lazy I know, but we are spoiled in so many ways.
