A mighty rumbling was heard throughout the land

Spotted at the store today (hence crappy cellphone pic). That’s, like, five bucks worth of beans, son!

I finally worked up the courage to say, no. Really. Thanks. I don’t want Heinz beanz with my dinner. Leaving Uncle B to buy those little teeny one serving cans that cost a relative fortune.

I think he wiped away a tear as we left this aisle.

Dinner? I thought they were a breakfast delicacy?

Smith: Can I get me some breakfast?

Juan: Name it.

Smith: A real breakfast?

Juan: Whatever you say.

Smith: Double OJ and squeeze it fresh.

Juan: Si?

Smith (speaks in near-ecstasy)

A stack of wheatcakes with lots
of melted butter… maple syrup.
And fry me three, four, five eggs
with a mess of sausages
and a mountain of white toast
with strawberry marmalade
and… keep the coffee coming.

Juan (incredulously):

No beans?

Smith: You got beans?

Juan: The most, señor.

Smith: Them too.

What, you don’t have a vacuum packer for food? Or an excess of Tupperware containers? Buy big, store big, eat small …. the bachelor’s way!

They are, tonycc, but Uncle B is liable to want them with any number of other meals. Bangers and mash, for example.

Ackshly, beans are only ‘breakfast food’ here when dining at a greasy spoon. Much to be enjoyed, of course, but usually cheap and nasty inferior ones (stop that sniggering at the back, there!).

Now a real breakfast involves things like porridge, devilled kidneys and kedgeree. Oh, and kippers. Only, I don’t like kippers.

And before the transatlantic ‘ghastly food furriners eat’ wars get going I shall say just one word to you lot. Guacamole! So there! 🙂

Not trying to start trouble in Badger House, but why wouldn’t you cook a pot of beans yourself?

Oh, I have done, Deborah. I love to make a big pot of beans. But that doesn’t replace Heinz beans any more than if I made…home made Pop Tarts. Nome sane?

Looking scary, Skandia. Early days, but scary. We are way, way overdue for a pandemic, and I’ve been on the parapet watching for it since I were a lass…

Beans are delicious at every moment during a day.

Beans are easy to make.

Heinz “Beanz” are terrible.

The Englishers are cuckoo.

I lurrrrves me some beans. All of them, well except for lima and black-eyed peas which are just heathen food, I don’t care where they came from.

I also loved them with Chuckie eggs and bread & butter soldiers, except I prefer Bush’s. Except now I don’t get to eat Gluten so I just salivate and fantasize about mounds and mounds of bread and biscuits and bagels and cake and pie and cry and cry and cry.

Hey the world is going to shit, what’s a pandemic or two?

Oh I understand about the beans. I keep Van Camp’s Pork and Beans on hand, and Ranch Style Beans, too—my childhood favorite. I also keep little jars of dried beef (yes, I serve chipped beef gravy on toast—and it is delicious), and we even like Spam.

Full Breakfast. I loves me some Full Breakfast. I love the mushrooms, the bangers, the (almost, but not completely unlike) bacon, the black pudding, the white pudding, the silly little triangle of deep-fried potato, even the grilled tomato if the chef does a decent job of it. I like to call it the “Death Breakfast,” because the guest of honor at the funeral of Four Weddings and a Funeral apparently had it every morning.

I have it every time I go to the UK or the Republic, which is seldom enough that I don’t worry much about the effect on my health; I love everything about it except for the Beanz. They’re much too sweet, and I like sweet, but Beanz are just . . cloying.

I’m sorry, but I have a hard time talking anything culinary to a country where Heinz beans is a delicacy and meat with brown sauce is a staple. No offense intended Uncle B. But let’s be honest here….England isn’t exactly known for its culinary genius.

Are Heinz British Baked Beans the same as American Baked Beans from, say, Bush Beans or even the American Heinz?

I do like Baked Beans, although I think of them as summer food, served as an accompaniment to knockwurst and sauerkraut….

My brand of preference is B&M in the glass jar; they include a little hunk of pork fat in each jar….which I carefully remove before eating, but which I also want to be there so I can remove it.

By the way, B&M sells a delicious Boston brown molasses bread that I love.

Hey, c’mon! Those beans are in deliciously rich tomato sauce!

I’ve eaten them, and I can aver that the closest those beans ever come to an actual tomato is if they’re served Full English.

But I’m with Unk B…love ’em. We ate similar beans when we were kids because they were cheap, so they’re comfort food for me. Not for brekky, but with white rice. Although I don’t mind them for brekky, as long as they don’t have to share the plate with black pudding. When in Rome, and all that.

Up to a point.

Tyree: Beans? Didn’t nobody tell the army they grow beef around these parts?

@Some Vegetable,

They’re sweeter, much sweeter, than American pork and beans (at least Campbell’s, the one I’m familiar with). Several of Bush’s bean products are quite sweet, too, but there’s usually some added flavor that makes them less cloying.

My doctor reminded me today that I was supposed to be working on my lipids. Unfortunately, while I was in Alaska, the only thing I ever wanted to eat was a proper “All-Day” breakfast.
(Just like Sydney Portier, McGoo.)
I found this Samoan place in Anchorage that took breakfast even more seriously than I did.
Well, my lipids were ugly last year, and they’re hideous this year. It’s oatmeal time for me!
