It's not as if they are welded into a lump.

I used to get those mini boxes of raisins as a 'healthy' snack for my son* when he was tiny, and quite often they would come out as a solid lump.


*one for the 'middle-class parenting tips' thread, if there is such a thing

Coming out as a solid lump helps stop them ending up shoved up the child’s nose. Not lumpy enough ime.

I never shoved them up my kids' noses. Is this a modern part of "parenting"?
I've dusted all those old bottles and set them up straight.

We used to refill those little red boxes
I did that! And I used to refill fruit shoot bottles with supermarket apple and blackcurrent.

That's working class parenting. Middle class parents make a carefully calculated decision that it is in their offspring's best long-term interests to learn to breathe through one nostril.

That's proper middle-class parenting.  ;D

o hai mr heinz!

I don’t know what you've done to your Reduced Salt & Sugar Snap-Pots of Baked Beanz, but lately they’ve taken to jumping out of the pot and all over the inside of the microwave.  Plz to put them back the way they used to be.

But yes!  They come in little plastic pots containing the equivalent of one (1) small tin of Beanz and have the advantage of not slicing the end off your finger when you rinse them out before bunging them in the recycling bin.  Peel back the top, nuke for eighty (80) seconds and a piping-hot serving of beany goodness is all yours.

I ate a can on Sunday that was best before August 2018. But weren't we all.

We do meekro-Whave baked Beanz but get them out of an ordinary tin, into a ceramic bowl.

Is the little plastic pot the convenience food equivalent of a ramekin, the uber-poncy way of serving beans?

I've always prefered Branston, from the days they were Cross and Blackwell
Beans and sauce properly distinguishable
With Heinz the sauce and beans sort of merge into a sticky oneness.

Branston belongs to Mizkan now. Most of the brand crossovers are just licensing - but Branston beans are still made by Premier Foods at Sutton  and they have the pickle spice recipe from when they owned Branston.
To my knowledge, Nestle have never owned Branston Pickle.

It seems they did until 2004, which is not yesterday.

At some point this week I plan to make homemade baked beans with veggie sausages. I'm pretty sure I'll be able to fly once I've eaten that.
