mimicking a discontinued component

Post by PanzerDivision666 » Thu Oct 07, 2010 12:49 am

Is there anybody out there in God's creation that can tell me how to make beans that taste exactly like the Beans W/Tomato Sauce component?
Because i keep eying this last onely carton and I just want to open it and eat it and satisfy that urge...but I'm saving it for doomsday. There's gotta be a recipe out there somewhere.
If i were rich, I'd shell out a big chunk of money for the info........



ARRRGH!!!!! :shock:
they really need to bring this one back!!!!!

You can usually find them in the international section (British) at your local supermarket.

Oh yeah, and for our American viewers, it's just Pork and Beans without the Pork.

Hi,
they're even available (a bit more expensive, right) in my lost part of the world :lol:

they cost .89 in the Netherlands (about $1.21)
Sure, someone may one day kill me with my own gun.
But they'll have to beat me to death with it because it's empty.

In my experience, as they age they get thicker and sweeter, until they turn completely bad. (You'll know when that happens.) I've had some that tasted more like a dessert than a side.

So you get to see the nice beanz.

That US tin is an old design. I havent seen that since the 90s.

And you are being gypped by 25 gm. Thats nearly like 50 beanz.
