Not Heinz anymore - never again, I have wasted my money on their garbage for the last time - as a kid I remember the brand being "the best" and can well remember the flavours of things like Tomato and their Chicken soup, but someone, somewhere has decided to fill their cans with Dishwater with a flavour that the label only hints at - their beans are also no longer any better than Asda own brand (just 3 times the price) so what has gone wrong? Does anybody make soup that actually tastes of anything? One that, if you were blindfolded, you would recognise the flavour?

Still cant go wrong with Heinz tomato soup,  as for beans we buy what's on offer, no point paying double the price for a name.

Sorry but Sainsbury's own Tomato Soup is far nicer and a better price at 50p per tin, a winter favourite here.

I have not bothered with Heinz over-priced food for years!

Their Tomato soup, i'm sorry, but is the worst culprit - tastes like watered down ketchup with a hint of vinegar. Try the newish Polish Ketchup that some supermarkets are stocking or even Aldi or Lidl's own.

Branston Beans 😊

 

1 tin of beans, 4 rounds of buttered toast, cut in 1/2 and placed criss cross on a warmed plate, pour beans over toast followed by a generous splashing of HP brown sauce. 

 

MMMMMmmmmm propper food.

I'll certainly try it but 6 tins for £2 at b&m hard to beat.

I've never been a brand snob, when I met the missus 5 years ago she got a big education on shopping on the cheap 😂

She's a convert now, we don't buy anything branded at all. Aldi coke to me is far better than the actual stuff, I can't remember the last time I had a tin of cheap beans that were bad.

Even though the big brands charge lots more than the own brands they still try to cheapen the recipe, they are making a fortune for their investors.

Isn't the reason brides get married in white so it matches the fridge, freezer and washing machine.

I always buy Heinz,but recently picked up their sugar free/reduced sugar and they where terrible.Asdas own and M&S own are ok but Aldi or lidl (anything Aldi/lidl  I simply cant do).Gave it a go when everyone kept saying it's the same,just a different label.Well nothing tastes anything like what we buy.As for saving money lol, we ended up spending more after doing a proper shop.
