Beans means Heinz, they told us. In fact, they told us this so well that beans became Heinz’s best known product in many parts of the world.
The trouble was, they didn’t tell us that they weren’t all vegan. They’re fine for vegetarians but that seems a little underwhelming in 2020, right?
So, we won’t blame you if you’re feeling a bit wary of Heinz’s vegan standards.
One Beans For Us, One Beans For Them?
Yes, Heinz makes a bunch of different baked beans and some of them aren’t vegan.
And that makes us rather more reluctant to buy any baked beans from them.
A Good Thing?
We’re pleased with this announcement but we feel it might be too little, too late.
Heinz’s main competitor Hellman’s has had a wide range of vegan options out for a good while now.
And, of course, you can also make your own at home, if you want to.
We hope that this is a sign of better things to come for vegans from Heinz in the future and we remain hopeful that this new Mayo is super tasty.
We do miss their baked beans.
Recommended Usage: Spread vegan mayo on two slices of whole wheat toast. Add two monster slices of beefsteak tomato. Layer on one of our picks for the best plant-based bacon. Add fresh ground pepper. Add more. Enjoy!
