    is it just me or are baked beans more watered down and not of the same standard?? I mean I usually buy HP, Branston or Heinz, but this time I bought HP, they were watery, discoloured and were not the usual colour.I was wondering if the manufacturers have been cutting down on their ingreds in an attempt to sell the beanz cheaper, coz the price of beans is twice as much as it used to be!!:confused:

    I agree, it seems there are fewer beans and more sauce. My favourite beans are branston and even they seem to be less beany :)

    I also use and love Branston beans! I can't say that I've noticed a difference in the quality of beans, I haven't been eating beans that long lol. I wonder why they're cutting back on the beans... I'd rather they up the price slightly rather than compromising the quality of the product.
    LOL @ the beans and sausage without the sausage!!! :D

    We only ever have Branston and I haven't noticed a reduction in beans, but the price is going sky high!! I try and stock up when Lidl have them in for £1 :D

    The first half year or so of my diet consisted of a lot of beans, I found that, although I never ate Heinz/Branstons due to the higher calorie content, I used to eat ASDA/Tesco reduced sugar/salt ones, except when there were none in stock, in which case it was the regular, but what I noticed was the reduced ones always tasted better and less watered down than the regular ones, strange?

    I agree beans do seem more watery, but so do the canned tomatoes too, the juice is definately not as thick as it was.

    usually we just buy Sainsburys own brand but the other week we shopped at Tescos (for a change!) and bought Tesco own beans, they were terrible imho, so watered down and tasteless, my bf and I both agreed that they reminded us of the beans we used to get given at school!
