Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Heinz Baked Beanz with Lea and Perrins Worcester Sauce Confirmed sighting: Heinz Baked Beanz with Lea and Perrins Worcester Sauce
Posted: 15:02 Thu 07-Jun-2007. Price: 44p. Location: Somerfield, Glasgow. Nutritional unusualness: "Anchovies" - presumably from the Lea and Perrins.
"Stephen Craig" reports: The at-the-time maligned merger of condiment giants HP and Heinz has failed to cause the problems that were feared when the takeover was first announced. HP and Heinz beans exist side by side in supermarkets - united against the Branston menace. HP Sauce remains in its reassuringly square bottle. And most importantly of all - Daddies Tomato Sauce remains on the shelves, smugly superior to its more popular Heinz equivalent. But the boffins at Heinz's labs haven't been idle. Finally blessed with the secrets of HP's entire range of sauces, they've gone mad with innovation and, er, chucked a load of Lea and Perrins in some beans and bunged out this special edition.

..."Stephen" returns with something of an epic here - don't hesitate to View comments for his final verdict. Elsewhere, Branston are jumping on the dubiously beneficial Omega 3 bandwagon with Branstein Baked Beans (55p/ 420g), while "Are these new or just relaunched with new labels?", wondered "Zeddy" regarding the Heinz Meanz Beanz Smokey BBQ previously praised here. "I tried the Smokey BBQ ones," "Zeddy" continues, "and they were fab (toxic fumes to follow... :)"

Comment: Appearing a slightly browner shade than normal (more akin to the seemingly retired Curry Beans) on opening the tin, these beans are unfortunately something of a disappointment. The Lea and Perrins flavour is FAR too weak - the distinctive Worcester Sauce flavour barely breaking through the normal Heinz beans tomato sauce. Indeed, the only real effect apart from the colour appears to be the fact that the sauce itself is unbelievably sweet. Quite unpleasantly so, in fact. Other than that, well, it's Heinz Beans. Frankly you'd be better off buying a normal tin and adding a wristy splash of Worcester Sauce yourself. Now let's hope that they don't now try HP Beans with HP Sauce.

Comment: Anyone who likes L&P could splash it on there thmeselves, what's the point of this?

Just like i splash tabasco on my beans when i have them, but i wouldn't want to see tabasco beans already made for me, i enjoy applying the condiment freshly!

Comment: from New Jersey, US:

I found this page while looking for information on Heinz Curry Beans, which I have recently discovered in a small English Foods section in one of our local markets. I would be very disappointed if Heinz has actually discontinued this product, because I've found that I like the taste, and it is a nice change from the typical American style beans to which we Yanks are accustomed.

That said, I can't imagine what would prompt the offering of L&P flavored beans. L&P is a staple in most homes, is it not? One could just add one's own.

Comment: Worry not, Michael, Heinz Curried Beans are still widely available here. Regard them as our contribution to Supersize Me, not to mention the hole in the ozone layer.
