“Horrible- bland- runny”

Written on: 05/05/2015 by RoccoMartin (1 review written)

What has happened to the vegetarian baked beans we all grew up with and loved? This new, made in England product should stay in England. Bring back the better recipe or you will find your customer base shrinking. The color of the beans is pale, the sauce is runny and the taste is bland. There is absolutely no flavor in this product. This is not the standard we expect and we will be looking for a new brand to purchase… Read Full Review

“Beans meanz No more Heinz”

Written on: 30/04/2015 by pkFlynn362 (1 review written)

Heinz Beans had a flavour that everyone grew up with, enjoyed and made them the number one family choice. The new product is sickly sweet, with a thin sauce and what seems like fewer beans per can that has turned a lifelong beans fan right off. Why have they let some idiots play around with a great recipe and come up with a product that has projected them straight to the bottom of the league table. If this is improvement what are they going to try and improve next? I only want to know so that I… Read Full Review

“What Have Heinz Done To Ruin Their Baked Beans?”

Written on: 18/03/2015 by 137Dugan (1 review written)

Heinz baked beans were always the best. Lovely soft beans in a wonderful, flavoursome, thick sauce. Now replaced by hard "bullet" beans and a watery tasteless sauce - they are now the equal of the worst cheap supermarket beans! 

I will never purchase another tin until Heinz revert to their original recipe. I now buy Tesco's own brand - not ideal but better than Heinz and cheaper too. 

Come on Heinz - I don't mind paying more for extra quality.

It's like everything else in this country these days, it's probably shipped in from China!

“How Dare You Ruin Part of The Nation's Staple Diet,...”

Written on: 21/09/2014 by Beanman1 (1 review written)

I have eaten Heinz Baked Beans for over 60 years and was shocked, after a few years away from Heinz due to the ever increasing price of the product, to find that the familiar quality had completely disappeared, replaced by cheap, hard beans and a watery, tasteless sauce. An e-mailed complaint to Heinz was merely acknowledged with no comment. I will certainly not purchase any more until assured that the original recipe has been restored. I have noticed that their soups have been adulterated in… Read Full Review

“WHAT HAPPENED TO BBQ BAKED BEANS!! ”

Written on: 09/09/2014 by Hullvb114 (1 review written)

Recently my partner and I have noticed that the BBQ baked beans are so tangy - so much that they're hard to swallow as they just burn our throats! Heinz really need to change back to the original BBQ baked beans or they are going to lose customers quick!… Read Full Review

“Underweight from the advertised 415g”

Written on: 06/08/2014 by Karlee125 (1 review written)

By chance the other day I noticed you do not get 415g but only around 398g, this was the case of 2 tins. Agree that the reduced salt and sugar has changed the taste completely may as well buy another brand now. Also the beans are really hard now… Read Full Review

“Why change a market leader ??”

Written on: 31/07/2014 by Babyboomersarflondon (1 review written)

They have changed the sauce twice in recent months. We quite liked the thick sauce and " mushy pea" texture as the sauce had been too watery in recent years. Now, however, they have changed the sauce back to the watery version and the beans are hard and tasteless. Please re-think your product - you have a huge fan base in England - don't lose them !!

“Heinz meanz cheap and nasty.”

Written on: 13/07/2014 by bpColeman198 (1 review written)

The quality of Heinz baked beans (like a lot of other heinz products) is suffering from corporate greed. The beans (and others) have been sophisticated or adulterated continuously for some time now. Every 'new recipe' dilutes the product substituting some cheap filler or just water for the beans. Heinz is down to 51% beans in a can and generally they require straining through a colander to get rid of the red tinged water. In Australia we have only 2 baked bean choices in supermarkets (not… Read Full Review

“Ex Heinz Beans fan!”

Written on: 12/07/2014 by mauneil (1 review written)

I have loved Heinz beans all my life till now. The reduced salt and sugar levels have ruined a product that has been loved and enjoyed for many years by several generations. They now taste so awful that I will not be buying them again unless Heinz revert to the original recipe… Read Full Review

“What happened to my Beans”

Written on: 29/06/2014 by Edspring (1 review written)

If asked what I would always eat the answer would always be beans & chips. Although it had to be Heinz baked beans as all others were inferior. No more I find the current version of Heinz Baked Beans to be very poor quality, the sauce is too thin & tasteless, the beans are stodgy (overcooked?) & have a skin and the whole product is too "wet" Before serving you need to drain the "sauce" of which there is an excess of. What has happened Heinz?… Read Full Review

“Bean Soup”

Written on: 30/05/2014 by Lake334 (1 review written)

The last couple of cans have been more like eating bean soup instead of baked beans. Way too much liquid, not nearly enough beans and no flavor. Won't be buying these anymore. In an effort to satisfy the the 'cheap' consumer Heinz has sacrificed the quality of their product. Shame on you. Guess I will have to purchase another brand and hopefully like them, or better yet, start making my own. Yeah, that's it. Keep your watery, flavorless baked beans, Heinz, somebody else will do a way better job… Read Full Review

I concur with all previous reviews. Bring back the Baked Beans we knew and loved! I will look out for an advert on the television announcing the original recipe has been reinstated. Until then I'll not be purchasing Heinz Baked Beans… Read Full Review

“Beanz No Longer Meanz Heinz”

Written on: 18/05/2014 by Esthameian (1 review written)

Having been a baked beans consumer for more than 50 years and probably having the largest collection of baked bean labels anywhere, I'd always looked on Heinz Baked Beans as the industry 'standard' - the brand you go to for consistency and against which to judge the rest. But no more. Over the past year or so, the quality, the flavour, the experience, the enjoyment factor have all fallen away - the Heinz Baked Bean rating has plummeted. I'd assumed I'd bought a 'dodgy' tin - but as I pulled… Read Full Review

“What have Heinz done to their beans?”

Written on: 09/05/2014 by TANK22 (1 review written)

I have been eating Heinz baked beans for as far back as I remember, however the last few tins I have opened have been unedible. The consistency of mushy peas with an extremely thick sauce (more like glue than sauce). I have had to throw the beans away and I hate throwing food away. Heinz have lost a lifelong customer here. I thought I was experiencing a dodgy batch of beans until I read the reviews on here. I have no choice but to search for another brand of baked beans… Read Full Review

“Breakfast ruined.”

Written on: 20/04/2014 by JaxsonEmery252 (1 review written)

Have eaten Heinz Beans with toast for breakfast for many years now (now 48yrs) and today is the end of an era. I have purchased them from different locations all with separate identifying batch numbers, hoping that maybe it was the result of a bad batch. Alas I was wrong, they all have the same negatives; (A). Watered down thin sauce. (B). Tasteless. (C). And as per the previous comment with regards texture, mushy or too hard, I agree. Time to find a new breakfast substitute… Read Full Review

“Poor sauce”

The beans were more like mushy pea consistency. Sauce was thick and almost gritty as if some of the beans had been pulped and added back to thicken the sauce. not good bring back the old ones ! I won't be purchasing anymore. maybe it time to try cross and Blackwell after years of Heinz… Read Full Review

“Bean Soup!”

Written on: 13/04/2014 by BridgerVaughan193 (1 review written)

I have eaten nothing but Heinz beans for years. When I thought of "beans" I thought Heinz. Recently I have been opening the can with the taste and texture of those great beans making my mouth water and I have tipped out the contents to find bean SOUP. The bowl I have sitting before me at this very moment is disgusting. It contains about 1/3 beans to 2/3 liquid and that is a generous estimate of the amount of beans. If these guys want to make more money on their beans they should just charge… Read Full Review

“Economic suicide.Went downhill fast”

Written on: 30/03/2014 by Teeny2 (1 review written)

We are giving up on Heinz beans after all these years. The addition of corn flour/starch and subtle differences in flavourings has dramatically changed the taste and the feel in the mouth. I believe that this is an Americanisation because I have noticed that many USA tinned foods are starched, notably Spam, which used to be juicy and tasty but is no longer. However, all is not lost.If one searches, other brands can be found that are acceptable. Contact Heinz with your displeasures… Read Full Review
