>> A million housewives every day pick up a tin of beans and say "Beans means Heinz" <<

I challenge you to get that tune out of your head before tea time.

And beans are served on toast so you don't lose any of the sauce - it soaks into the bread an all gets eaten.

Yum.

I took a look at Youtube, and you know, I think the advertising in the UK was quite different from in the US. smiley - smiley Somebody could get an entry right there.

And thanks for the toast explanation - my mom was the only person I knew who ate beans - in her case, navy beans - on a slice of bread. Maybe that was why, I never thought to ask. smiley - laugh

BTW Baked beans are really easy to make. Might have been a fluke, but I once made some and they were nearly as good as Heinz.

"There never were exactly 57. They picked that number out of a hat - 7 being lucky. But they insisted they had at least that many".

Apparently in the graphic novel "Watchmen", to subtly illustrate the point it's set on a parellel Earth, one of the characters is in his kitchen eating beans - the little detail on the can, as pointed out by eagke-eyed readers, is that on that alternative Earth, Heinz has fifty-eight varieties....
