For years I ate Campbell's Baked Beans and never tried other brands; when I had Bush's Original Baked Beans at a tailgating party I was blown away by the taste and that the beans weren't mushy. These are great out of the can without heating them up but my family usually looks at me like I am a cavewoman when I eat them like that. It only takes about 90 seconds to heat them up in the microwave but you are going to want to make sure that you stir them every 30 seconds so they are evenly heated up. The original recipe is sweet but not so much so that it leaves you with a bad aftertaste; if you want to add things to it you can. My boys like cut up hot dogs or sausage in it but you are going to need to pre-cook any meat you plan on adding to the beans. I stock up on these when they are on sale because I know that in the winter months everyone will eat them with a sandwich and salad for lunch or a quick dinner. The 28 ounce cans are the only size I buy because once I open it, it's usually gone in less than two days. The suggested portion is a half a cup; I can eat that when I am standing at the counter making a sandwich or waiting for something to heat up in the microwave. Each serving contains 140 calories, 1 gram of fat, 550 milligrams of sodium, 29 grams of carbohydrates (5 grams dietary fiber) and 6 grams of protein. Even though beans are good for you and the fiber helps with digestion, there's a lot of added sugar to this so you need to watch how much you are eating at each sitting.
