Anyone remember these? They were my favorite when I was a kid. They came in two separate cans: the beans and the "fixin's".

Yep. Good memories from way back.

My maternal grandmother's family came from New England, which is why the Boston style baked beans with brown bread was part of my childhood back in the 50's, even though we lived in Minnesota.

I certainly have had better.
Do you have a favorite to recommend?
So far the best I've eaten are these:Canned Beans: Bush's Best | Bush’s Beans
I buy two small cans and when I take them out of the grocery bag, they immediately go into the fridge. I love them cold. And I love them in a sandwich.

I bought some Bush's beans yesterday. They are very tasty.
For years I couldn't stand the thought of eating canned beans.
A coworker named 'Waddie' came upon a truck on it's side in the ditch in the middle of the night. The driver must have been picked up by someone. The ditch was full of boxes of frozen weiners. The boxes were all over the place. Each box must have had a hundred individually wrapped weiners in it.
He and his wife loaded as many boxes in their car as they could. He told me his wife even had boxes on her lap.
Somehow they got home and were able to put dozens of boxes of the weiners in various friends freezers.
Anyway for at least a year five days a week he would bring a thermos with a few warm watery gray weiner's to work. He'd open a can of cold beans then into a bowl then dip the weiners in the beans while smacking his lips and occasionally 'passing gas' at the lunch table.
Once a fellow employee happened to be walking behind Waddie when he was eating. Waddie farted and the guy behind him shoved Waddie's face down into the weiners and beans.
Waddie transferred out of our department soon after.

Interesting, which ones would you suggest? Seems all the ones we've tried were too sweet or overloaded with sauce. I'd be interested in trying a less sweet version.
