I don't know what to add but I would drown it in grated cheese...... then I would add some sour cream.
Grated cheese can be my best friend when I "wreck" a meal...... . When it comes to Baked Beans I always buy SPC Baked Beans and then I choose Heinz.

I have never eaten canned baked beans as is. They always get doctored. There was one exception, Big Johns. There were two cans taped together, one with beans and one with goodies. I might have lined the baking dish with bacon, but nothing else except the bacon on top.

I remember Big Johns. I had forgotten about it coming in two cans. Kind of a novel approach.

Growing up in Maine, baked beans are a big deal.

Never had anything but homemade until I was an adult. If it isn't homemade (from dry beans) then it has to be Bush's or B&M.

In my area of the south, they usually start with a generic canned pork and bean and add catsup, mustard, sugar, worcestershire sauce and such to it, everyone has their own way.

Are Heinz beans different in Europe?
I seem to remember reading some where that they were.
Heinz here in the U.S.A. have a red label and I believe those in Europe have a blue label.
Is there a difference?
Heinz is down the list on the canned beans for me. I'd go for B&M or Bush's first.
But any canned beans can be made good with a few alterations.

That scene form Blazing Saddles makes me crack up every time I see it, no matter how many times I see it. (Yes I have the mind of a 3 year old.)

You need to eat beans if others are just so you can defend yourself.

In deer camp, beans produced buck snorts. In California, you have to be wary of the California Barking spider. They come from eating cans of California Barking Spider Eggs. I use to have a can, labeled as such.

They don't have any effect on me though, because I'm a lot like the male version of Mary Poppins, "practically perfect in every way."

This is kind of difficult to answer considering I have no frame of reference. Although I am familiar with Hienz baked beans, I have no idea what the generics are like. Hienz are in a tomato sauce, so I would start there. Add a bit of apple cider vinegar perhaps, maybe a little onion powder....again without a frame of reference....it's a shot in the dark

so that's how you fly around with just an umbrella.

the bernoulli principle in effect again. bigher pressure beneath the umbrella and lower pressure above it provides lift.

According to the world's foremost authority, Wikipedia, Heinz in England has much less sugar than Heinz in the US.
