Heinz Baked Beanz

eat your heart out Andy Warhol!


In the United Kingdom, Heinz is the top selling brand of baked beans. There are substantial differences between the Heinz baked beans sold in the UK and the nearest equivalent U.S. product (Heinz Premium Vegetarian Beans). The U.S. beans contain brown sugar where the British beans do not. The U.S. product contains a total of 14g of sugar per can compared to 7g for the British version (equating to 140 vs 90 calories per tin). The U.S. beans also possess a mushier texture and are darker in colour than their UK counterpart.


Heinz Beans were first sold in the UK in the upmarket Fortnum & Mason store in London as an exotic import at a high price. Although now a staple food, and arguably a downmarket one, the store continues the tradition of selling Heinz Beans among its more expensive wares.
