Serious Bean Co. Cracked Pepper Baked Beans
I decided to pick up some pork steaks for dinner tonight and, since I needed a side dish to go with them, stopped off in the baked bean section. I originally planned on just buying a brand I was familiar with but, remembering how much I enjoyed the Sweet & Spicy Chipotle Pinto Beans from this brand, I ended up buying the cracked pepper beans instead ($1.99).
I had them with dinner, as planned and, unfortunately, they just weren't as impressive as I hoped they would be.
I didn't think this would be the case but, for a product that advertises cracked pepper, I actually thought these beans were a bit bland. I'm not saying they didn't have some flavor to them but there was definitely nothing about them that didn't remind me of any other baked bean I've purchased. In other words, the chipotle beans had a memorable taste (and worked great in chili). These didn't.
These are a bit more expensive than the other brands of beans I had to choose from and, because of that, I don't think I'll be buying this product again.
