Man Shocked To Find Just One Bean In His Can Of Heinz Baked Beans
Beans on toast is an absolute classic - you can't beat quick and easy comfort food after a tough day in work. You get home, you realise you have one can left - good stuff. You put your bread in to toast, crack the tin open... but what's this? Just the one baked bean? Surely not.
But that's what happened to one man after he opened a can of Heinz Beans.
Having bought the tin as part of a multi pack from Tesco Online, Steve Smith, from Bristol, was both confused and disappointed when he opened a tin of baked beans to find a solitary, lonely bean floating in there.
Yep, the 41-year-old local councillor's tin was full of bean juice, but not full of beans.
Steve explained: "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."
Oh Steve. What a downgrade, you can't go from beans on toast to scrambled egg.
Mr Smith, who is a Conservative councillor for Westbury-on-Trym and Henleaze, said he eats beans 'once every couple of weeks'.

After making the shocking discovery, he posted a video of the find on Twitter and tagged manufacturer Heinz.
It said: "Hi @HeinzUK. 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."
He added: "I thought they might see the funny side."
LADbible has approached Heinz for comment.
On average, a Heinz tin contains 465 beans. I'm no mathematician, but I'm pretty sure one bean amounts to markedly less than that figure.
I'm not sure how many crisps are meant to be in a bag of Tesco's Finest, however, but I'm pretty certain there aren't meant to be any full potatoes. So you can imagine one lady's shock when she found one in hers.
Anna Elliot, from Belfast, was attempting to enjoy a boat trip by cracking out the snacks - but as she opened the packet to enjoy them, she was met with a devastating discovery as she pulled out a fist-sized spud.
The offending sea salt and cider vinegar crisps were bought by Anna's pal Erin Savage, 36, on 1 August in Belfast.
She took to Facebook to complain to Tesco with some beautifully written poetry - cue a whole load of top social media customer care bantz which ended with both customer and company declaring love and hugs for each other.
All's well that ends well, I suppose.
