Its not the Beans fault, there just scared, they bunch up to each other and squash together and therefore give the appearance that a can is only two thirds full.

Free Range Beans is the answer, a Free Range Bean is a Happy Bean.  :)

Andy as you are our beans expert but anyone else might know too,

What is the answer to how many beans makes five?

This was a popular and irritating question adults asked children back in the early 60ís. Then they thought the answer was hilarious. I suspect it was on a tv show at the time.

Heinz beanz are soft soggy shite. In blind tests they come nowhere.

Unless they are being sold at 4 tins for a quid I won't touch them.

Hey ups Andy. You can put that on your CV. The answer we had when we were young was along the lines of :

a bean , a bean , half a bean and so on....

Anyone?

Google is my friend

Number lore has survived in ways in folk-lore, rhymes and riddles. The bean riddle is, in fact a mnemonic for remembering the sacred decade. The correct answer is: two beans and a bean, a bean and a half and half a bean. Each bean is composed of two parts, and it's these that are the units for the tetractys, the equilateral triangle formed from the ten units to the formula 1+2+3+4=10

Who knew beans could be so interesting. ;D ;D

Many, many years ago, I worked for a sweet manufacturer in High Wycombe. We made Sherbert Lemons, and they all came through the machine into sweet jars.......the first lot we labelled Taylors at 6d per quarter, and the next lot were labelled Trebor at 9d per quarter. Total rip off ;)
