Totally OT question

Last week my mum said someone told her you can't get baked beans in the US. So...can you?

Ummm yeah. In the summer months you always find cans of them on sale. Not sure if it's the same kind of baked beans y'all have though. They're just beans in a sweet syrup. Sometimes there's bacon and onions added. My parents add pulled pork BBQ to theirs too.
I don't normally buy them or eat them since there's so much sugar in them. Many of the cans have HFCS (or "corn syrup" as they're now allowed to label :roll:).

Yes...there are tons. How weird! We don't buy them either except when we're camping--good easy camp lunch with hot dogs Smile

I thought baked beans were an American thing. Like from the deep south or something. Perhaps what you call baked beans is something different?

What are your baked beans like in the UK, Sarah? Same as Jackie described above?

Baked beans here are navy beans in a sauce, usually a tomato tpe, like in tin spaghetti, but they also do ham, BBQ and some others. They do an English style as well which I am now intrigued about the taste difference and will be going to buy tomorrow. I am loving a kindney bean mix they do as well with salsa, it's really yummy in a wrap with salad
