Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Heinz Hidden Veg Hoops/ Heinz Beanz With Balls Confirmed sighting: Heinz Hidden Veg Hoops/ Heinz Beanz With Balls
Posted: 22:51 Tue 30-Oct-2007. Price: 57p/ 69p per can. Location: Morrisons, Yeovil/ Netto, Leicester.
"tasha" reports: "Carrot, parsnip, red pepper and courgette blended into the sauce... sneaky!", while here's a full-size pic of the Heinz Beanz with Balls which "Nick T" describes as: "Made with the finest abattoir sweepings, the meatballs do at least have one point of difference in that they're made of lamb, and not just another burger-bite wannabee. Quite salty, but I'd be happy to see these as a permanent line, and would probably buy again. Nice 'newspaper headline' theme to the labelling. The same branch also had Beanz with Big Saucy Bangers also at 69p, but I didn't buy them so I can't supply a photo."

...To be honest, there isn't much to be said about Heinz's microwaveable plastic Snap Pots (1.49 for 4x 200g) so, in other hot products: the most infuriating thing about Burger King's Angry Whopper is that it sometimes seems like they've just given you an ordinary Whopper until you find one of the well-concealed "Angry Onion Strips" or "Hot-Headed Jalapenos", so my vote currently goes to McDonald's surprisingly sophisticated-tasting Chicken Legend, despite some of the results you'll get if you Google the name of this particular product.

Comment: I don't know anyone who actually likes any brand of Hoops. They always seem the same, no matter how expensive they are.

They also remind me of school meals where they seemed to be on the menu every day despite the fact that they were only ever useful for 'flicking' into other people's dessert (they ruin an ice cream pudding in a few minutes if left unattended). I don't think hiding vegetables in the sauce is going to get the nation to jump on board anytime soon.
