good with bread
Good for the price
These beans are OK. They don't deserve all of the bad reviews they've been getting. Just what do you expect for 30p a can? All you need to do is add some tomato puree and then they're just as good as the more expensive brands. One other point. The contents are only 400g and NOT 420g as printed on the label. I've reported it several times but no-one seems to take any notice!
I really really like them! Sure, they are a bit bland so I try to spice them up with some herbs or a tad bit of extra salt. But really, I enjoy that they are sugar free and that there's an healthier option of baked beans.
Worst taste ever
Worst tasting baked beans I have ever tasted. I've bought baked beans at every supermarket; both own brand and branded. These, I can safely say, I will never buy again, even if there's no others in store. I'd rather go without.
Worst beans ever false taste .
No thank you! I would rather eat regular beans and risk a blood sugar spike than these bland no flavour beans they are honestly something I will never buy again, if healthier = bland and bad tasting I would rather be unhealthy.
Taste fine, good value.
These beans are fine, and pretty good value. Apparently some customers can only eat food if it tastes really sweet, and have given this a bad review. It tastes of beans, not just of sweetness, and this confuses them. My only problem is that they are almost never in stock - been trying to order them for months.
no added sugar so they added terrible taste
vile has a nasty almost floral artificial taste to them, literally worst beans i have ever bought.
Like your beans to taste of saccharin? Try these.
Dear Tesco, why do you think your customers want their baked beans to taste sweet? As a long-term baked bean consumer, I've never known them to be a 'sweet' dish. I bought these as a healthier alternative to the standard 'added sugar' version, but after consuming nearly a whole can, I was left with the distinctive and disgusting taste of artificial sweetener in my mouth. I guess I didn't notice it when eating them because I'd added cheese to them while they were being heated. Even half a mug of builders tea couldn't shift this unpleasant after-taste. The 'delicately seasoned sauce' you say they're 'carefully cooked in' is SO delicate, you can't taste it. The artificial sweetener used (Steviol Glycosides) may not carry the same 'health-risk' claim as others like acesulfame K, but still has the same weird, chemical-like taste to it. If your customer satisfaction team bothered to read the 80 reviews of this product on your website, you'd see most of them say how bad it tastes. Clearly, nobody ever checks these reviews, so people like me have to waste their money on rubbish like this. I've spent the last 20 years avoiding most artificial sweeteners (Google it to find out why), and then I take 4 cans of these beans home (special deal), because I didn't realise that "NO ADDED SUGAR" on a tin of beans means just the same thing as when it's printed on a bottle of orange-flavoured drink - it's full of sweeteners! It's not enough to have light blue flashes on products containing artificial sweeteners. You need to state that they have this on the front of the tin, in lettering the same size as the "NO ADDED SUGAR" text - something like "NO ADDED SUGAR, BUT ADDED WEIRDNESS" might help.
Horrible beans. They were sent as a substitute on my home delivery order so I accepted them really without much thought. Definitely would not buy any or accept them again. They don't taste at all nice.
