Man baffled after opening tin of Heinz baked beans to find just ONE bean inside

- in Uk News

A HUNGRY baked beans fan panned Heinz after cracking open one of their cans to just find a single bean inside.

Steve Smith, 41, was desperate for a quick meal at the end of a busy day and grabbed the last tin of a multipack in the cupboard.

Conservative councillor Steve Smith, 41, was shocked to find the last tin in his cupboard contained just one bean.

But he was shocked to open it and discover a solitary bean drowning in juice. The councillor, who bought the Heinz beans from Tesco, said: “I got back late from a residents’ meeting and wanted some food.

“I poured out the tin and I found one bean.

“I thought it was funny — but annoying! It was the last tin we had in the cupboard. I had to have scrambled egg instead.”

Steve, a Conservative councillor for Westbury-on-Trym and Henleaze in Bristol, usually tucks into a beans meal “once every couple of weeks”.

A standard can contains an average of 465 beans.

But after finding his one flying solo, he posted a video on Twitter and tagged manufacturer Heinz in the hope they “would see the funny side”.

He told them: “I enjoy ‘bean juice’ as much as the next person, but when I opened a can this evening I was hoping for more than one bean.”

Heinz replied to Steve asking for his details, but it is not known what action they have taken.

Steve later joked: “I’ve had more interest on this than in any of the actual issues I’ve worked on as a councillor.”
