Very tasty, better than the leading brand. Half a jar is enough for two people, but will keep in fridge for about 3 days.
Out of the fifty-three food companies I have bookmarked in my Safari browser, Clearspring Ltd is my go-to brand. Like checking Amazon before making an in-person purchase, prior to ordering non-supermarket health foods I visit here. A few reasons:
- Their products are authentic, clearly labelled, ethically sourced, free from artificial additives, organic, and ship with generous use-by dates
- Their customer service from ordering, packaging, and customer-facing availability, through web chats and emails, is kept to an unusually high standard; up-to a handwritten note thanking you for your purchases
This order was for their baked beans. 'Baked beans on toast' was a favourite meal of mine in my teenager years, but the brand I ate, Heinz, no longer meet my higher dietary standards. I prefer my foods to be minimally processed, and Heinz beans instead contain sugars and syrups. Fortunately, after surveying and trying competing brands (including Mr. Organic and Biona) I have found flavoursome beans here without the unnecessary ingredients. These also happen to be the only baked beans I've found that are unsweetened, so I declare my search is over. These are my new go-to baked beans.
When I discovered Clearspring through their Organic Tofu during a year of veganism, I was surprised to read they are a family-run business. I feel ever more delighted that I can... recommend these beans, and Clearspring more generally, to those with a similar goal to mine.
Hi Matthew, thank you so much for taking the time to leave such a great review. It's truly appreciated. Thank you for choosing Clearspring ;)
No added sugar, no junk - large beans, wholesome, and delicious - and can recycle the glass jars
Very pleased with the service and the product
I first bought this product from Ocado but they were no longer available so i hunted ClearSpring down online and since then have bought direct. I gave it 5 stars because i like the product so much but if i'm allowed one quibble it's that the jars are so narrow that it's difficult to get my fingers in to route out every last bean and as i'm blind i have to use touch rather than sight to make sure they're all out. I'll be ordering jar scrapers from Lakeland in the hope they'll have more success than my big fat fingers. I cook mine in a small slow cooker with a choped red onion and add some steamed chestnut mushrooms for my breakfast 6 days a week. If you don't have any probs getting them out of the jar i can highly recommend these Baked Beans for both flavour and texture.
