If there’s one thing the British cling to, it’s nostalgia, especially if it has to do with a golden age of its culture such as the nineties. We are not going to blame him, of course. We talk about Trainspotting; from the Spice Girls; Mr. Bean; from Lady Diana; of the disputes between Blur, Oasis and the Oasis singers themselves, or of Take That’s backlash.
For this reason, it is not surprising that they also missed a culinary infamy that we do not believe would succeed beyond the British Isles (in fact, we doubt that it would succeed inside, but we already know what the palate is like). british). What we do know is that his prayers have been answered and a nineties landmark more powerful than the Wannabe go back to your freezers.
It is, neither more nor less, the Baked Beans pizza (a dish of beans with tomato typical of the english breakfast) that the Heinz company has put back on the market on November 14th and is already delighting the Anglo-Saxon public with a pizza that a student might as well sign guarrindonguero or any follower of having pizza for breakfast, although this time he has two reasons in one to do so.
Present in retail chains specializing in deep-frozen foods such as Iceland (nothing to do with Iceland) and The Food Warehouse, the return of Baked Beans pizza once again makes the sons of Great Britain happy, who saw how this delicacy of dubious reputation left their lives in 2003 and that, in an ephemeral way, returned in 2019 with the 150th anniversary of Heinz, the company that manufactures the baked beans most famous and, at the time, this pizza.
Fortunately or unfortunately (only time will know how or why), this pizza does not transcend british borders (not always the Brexit It was going to have bad things), but it does seem that it is going to have continuity after listening to the company the continuous prayers of its most faithful followers.
Without going into valuing the mix, we honor the British who know how to laugh at themselves and who, after having perpetrated important acts of culinary looting such as the Hawaiian pizza, the chorizo salad or the paella sandwich, unleash their gastronomic fetishes with this deep-frozen pizza.
The curious thing, although it sounds sacrilege, is that we don’t think it’s as big a spawn of evil as we think and possibly the pizza isn’t that bad, but it’s certainly curious that some stewed lentils end up as part of a pizza topping.
Also, not content with the offense—or with the listener’s requests—Heinz has gone further and He has also prepared a vegan burger with his beans with tomatoas well as hashbrown stuffed with these beans and also a bowl of chili con carne (and beans, of course) that seems the most salvageable from a raid that, if the Spanish Armada had known in its time, would have refrained from going to sea.
PS: don’t try it at home; We don’t want you to make an Asturian fabada pizza, please.
