A couple of weeks ago a few people in the team had an international food tasting experience, starting with Spotted Dick and custard – This week we decided to step up a notch, trying “Baked Beans” from around the world, in this case three US bean varieties (two Van Camps, and one Bush’s), and Heinz Beans from the UK – we also had a truly international group of bean tasters on hand to provide feedback and vote appropriately.
Beans were as follows…
- Van Camps Pork and Beans (no visible pork – although there was a white(ish) blob of something in with the beans.
- Bush’s Original beans (has brown sugar)
- Van Camps Beanee Weenee (Beans and slices of Pork Sausage)
- Heinz Baked Beans (from the UK)
Out of the four bean types there was a tie between “Van Camps – Pork and Beans” and Heinz Beans. We needed to find an impartial judge to nudge the taste test one way or another… And the final winner was <drum_roll>Heinz Baked Beans</drum_roll> from the UK.
We now need to decide what the next taste off is going to be – suggestions?
