Heinz FIVE Beanz

To celebrate the launch of another delicious Heinz product we were sent a Tea for Grown Upz package to enjoy ...and enjoy we did!

The package included a delicious variety of items from Tesco and a mini hamper with a tin of Alphabetti Spaghetti (for the Mini Mes) and a tin of FIVE Beanz for the Mr and I. I shuffled around the meal planner a little as I was keen to give them a go!

Heinz FIVE Beanz contains Haricot, Pinto, Cannellini, Borlotti and Red Kidney beans. Combined with the smooth tomato sauce within every tin, each portion is one of your five a day. Therefore they are not only tasty but nutritious too.

They are naturally low in fat, high in fibre and as there are no artificial flavours, colours or preservatives they are ideal for both the grown ups and little people too - even those that are weight conscious!

There is more variation in flavour when compared to Heinz Beanz. We thought they were really nice and a pleasant twist on the classic favourite. They still have the same great taste and low calories (87 per 100g) so I intend to have these quite frequently. We had them as an accompaniment with some juicy organic steak, sweet potato and swede but they are perfect on toast, with chips, as a quick snack or in main meals like casseroles and Chilli. I will pop these in the next one I make! (You can read my Chilli recipe here)

Heinz held a Tea Time for Grown-Upz event in London on 6th September  to celebrate the release of FIVE Beanz.

Sophie Ellis Bexter and friends joined 120 guests to taste a delicious menu including the new product. With 250KG of FIVE Beanz being shipped in especially for the event guests could choice from a yummy menu:

  1. I am rather excited by this! I love beans, I know it's really random to get excited about a tin of 5 beans but for cooking it is actually rather useful like you have mentioned!Nom nom nom!

    1. I am so looking forward to trying out some winter foods with them in mmmm! :)

  2. i love heinz products i dont think i have ever been disappointed when buying their tins, and sauces i enjoyed your review thank you :)

  3. me and my daughter love these mixed in with rice, baby corn, peas, sweetcorn, courgette, tomatoes etc..yummy :)

  4. We tried these but weren't too keen! We prefer the original or with sausages!

  5. I tried this again and liked them better second time round! Still prefer the original though with sausages!

  6. Be nice to try baked beans with a variety of beans.

  7. Wow these look and sound delicious will have to look out for them on our next shop. Be great with some wintery dishes ;)
