Two absolute staples of British cuisine have been combined together to create a new delicacy, and they’re set to hit supermarket shelves next month.
It may sound a little too good to be true, but for anyone who finds themselves reliant on a couple of hash browns and some baked beans to get them through the hangover from hell, or to wake them up on a lazy Sunday morning, then it’s probably going to make your day that Heinz has announced it is releasing bags of hash brown fingers.
But if the convenience of that wasn’t brilliant enough as it is, that’s not even the best bit.
Coming soon to supermarkets across the UK, the food manufacturer will be filling those little hash brown fingers with baked beans.
At this point, very little is known about Heinz’s Beanz Filled Hash Browns, but what we do know is that they’re going to exclusively stocked at branches of leading frozen food retailer Icleand nationwide from next month, and they’re expected to be just £2 per bag on introductory offer.
Announcing that Heinz Beanz Filled Hash Browns are on the way, Icleand Foods said on Twitter: “Remember when you had Heinz Baked Beans with hash browns and thought “Why not put the baked beans IN the hash browns”?
“Well, coming in September.”
Heinz also took to the comments of an Instagram post by popular food blogger NewFoodsUK last week to add that: “These are actually peng, we promise.”
Foodies in their thousands have been taking to social media to share their delight at the news that Heinz Beanz Filled Hash Browns are now actually a real thing, with people already branding them “unreal”.
“Delicious… Can’t wait to try them,” another person said on Instagram.
No actual release date for the Heinz Beanz Filled Hash Browns has been confirmed, so fans will need to keep their eyes peeled.
The news of the new food creation comes after Iceland announced earlier this month that it’s giving pensioners in Greater Manchester vouchers worth £30 to help with food and essentials amid the rising cost of living crisis.
With inflation now at a 40-year UK high and the rising cost of living crisis continuing to make it its impact felt nationwide, Iceland has partnered with The Rothesay Foundation to launch a new voucher scheme aimed at supporting pension-aged people ease the financial burden.
And that’s just part of the first wave of celebrity contestants – more famous faces will take part in I’m A Celebrity… South Africa, entering the camp as the series goes on.
The new series will ‘push them to their limits and test them like never before’, ITV has said, promising bigger and tougher challenges and an even harsher environment.
Also taking part from the launch episode will be Diversity star Jordan Banjo, TV presenter Carol Vorderman, Olympian Fatima Whitbread, former royal butler Paul Burrell, ex-England cricketer Phil Tufnell, and supermodel Janice Dickinson.
ITV said: “Whilst nodding back to the Australian jungle, I’m A Celebrity…South Africa is a uniquely different series so viewers can look forward to lots of unexpected twists and turns.”
The trailer also shows the celebs taking part in pre-recorded challenges, taking on everything from nasty food to terrifying heights.
I’m A Celebrity… South Africa will air on ITV1 and ITVX from April 2023.

Commentator Arlo White shows off what the Old Trafford gantry walk looks like
Ever wondered what it’s like to be up in the gantry in a football stadium, say, Old Trafford? Well, we certainly have.
You see the odd shot of the commentators sat there on the telly from time to time but it never really gives much away either and, at some venues, it’s quite a ways up there. There’s a little bit of allure behind these mysterious parts of footy grounds that most fans will never get to see.
After hours of mindless scrolling on the social media app, we stumbled across the well-known sports commentator‘s channel where he’s been showing off what it’s like to go in the gantry and one of them is his long walk to crow’s nest up at the Theatre of Dreams.
As it turns out, Arlo’s been doing these videos for a couple of years now, revealing how the gantry looks not only at Old Trafford but other big Premier League grounds too, such as down the road at the Etihad, Arsenal’s Emirates Stadium, Tottenham Hotspurs’ sparkly new ground and many more.
Another reason we found ourselves stuck on his TikTok for so long was also because of the other behind-the-scenes details he reveals too, even shedding light on how he prepares for games: note-taking, data sheets, how keeps himself warm up there during those cold nights on comms and so on.
