Best National Brand Canned Beans?

I admit to sometimes for lunch just opening a can of beans. I don't heat them. Just into a bowl and add a squeeze of Heinz ketchup and S&P with a piece of toast.
The beans I had today (now) where Stokley's w/tomato sauce.
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

S & W, been using them for years and never disappointed. All their beans from Chili Beans to Black Beans, wonderful. Firm and never mushy.

We like Bush's too. B&M is a good brand, or it used to be, haven't had them in awhile.

Stores around here don't carry them anymore, but for baked beans, I really miss Big John's. You got a can of beans and a smaller can of "fixins", which you added when heating them up. Karen ordered me some awhile back. Might have to order some more.

Thanks for the input.
Bush's seems to be the best. I'll get them next time.

Bush's for sure. B&M are good but not for everyone.I love them but DH doesn't like them at all!

If you can find them Campbell's has a new type out with bacon that are really good too. 😀

Haven't had Campbell's for ages, will have to try the new recipe. They were a mainstay in school cafeterias.

I haven't tried S&W, but they look good too.

Bush's for beans with sauce.

Goya for plain beans.
