shopping: May 2010 Archives

275x250.jpgBrits are such fans of baked beans that each year we eat three times more than the rest of the world combined.

In 2009 more than 800 million tins of beans were eaten in the UK - with the second most prolific bean eaters Australia only munching their way through 60m tins.

Canada came third in the Heinz research with 41 million tins and New Zealand snagged fourth with 24 million -- but most of those are probably expats.

Within the UK, Trafford in Greater Manchester is the place where most beans are eaten, 553,243 tins last year.

That's enough to cover the pitch at Old Trafford four times‚ though it would probably still be a better playing surface than Wembley.
