HE'S BEAN HAD! Man baffled after opening tin of Heinz baked beans to find just ONE bean inside

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.

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.”

You'd think that they'd put it in a smaller can.

It cost him 70p for that bean from Tesco when he should have been charged 0.15p.

One bean is still good for your heart.
