  • The lack of thickness wasn’t the only problem
  • I did save about $1 on the can (even with the Bush’s brand being on sale) so I got what I paid for
  • But, I think I’ll be looking for a different brand the next time I’m trying to save money with a generic equivalent

      I picked up a chicken dinner from one of the local grocery stores last night. And, since I didn’t want to pay deli prices on side dishes, I went to the actual grocery section to pick up a can of baked beans.

      Normally, I would get Bush’s baked beans.

      But, the chicken was more expensive than I expected


      so I tried to reduce my overall price on dinner by buying the generic equivalent.

      In this case, it was the Our Family brand.

      I have purchased generic brands in the past and, for the most part, have been happy.

      But, I have to say there was a slight difference between the Our Family brand and the better ...


      • known Bush’s brand.

        For one, they were much more watery than the more expensive brand.

        When I put them in the dish (I was microwaving them) it was almost as though it was some sort of bean soup.

        And, that water didn’t cook out as well as I would have liked.

        The lack of thickness wasn’t the only

        problem.

        The beans didn’t have the same taste as the more expensive brand and were much more bland.

        I did save about $1 on the can (even with the Bush’s brand being on sale) so I got what I paid for.

        But, I think I’ll be looking for a different brand the next time I’m trying to save money with a generic equivalent.
