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.

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.

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....
