You promised you'd never change,
This review is from: Heinz Baked Beans 415 g (Pack of 24) (Grocery)
Always loved heinz beans, scoffed at those who insisted there where other brands worth considering. But something has gone horribly wrong. No longer the rich tomato sauce, now an insipid orangey coloured water that tastes of nowt. Much though I hate to chuck my lot in with the type of people who scream "it's pc gone mad" etc. it would appear that the food police have ruined heinz beans. After eons of making great beans heinz caved into the "nutrition nazis" and reduced the salt and sugar content, you know, to "save us from ourselves". You know why heinz beans used to taste great? Salt and blinking sugar that's why. If I want less salt and sugar in my beans I'll buy one of those horrid reduced enjoyment ones, cheers.

There's way too much sugar in standard baked beans! Must be around 20 years since I had them. But eat the reduced sugar ones most days.

I fully concur with your comments. Nowadays I eat Branston Baked Beans, because the sauce is much thicker and darker and unsurprisingly contains more sugar and salt for that enhanced gorgeous taste.
As a result it tastes a million times better than those rubbish Heinz variety, where their sauce tastes more like water.
I have friends and family who are religiously faithful to Heinz, however I played a trick on them.
On a few occasions I made them beans on toast and I was complemented on how I somehow mysteriously made them taste so good and they were surprised and converted when I told them they had eaten Branston and not Heinz.
I just hope that Branston don't succumb to the nasty insidious fascist food police like Heinz did.
