Campbell's Pork And Beans-- Blech!

monavano | May 5, 201105:45 AM     58

I picked up a can of pork and beans for dinner last night (burgers, cole slaw) and decided that I'd pay about 1/2 price for good old Campbells vs. Bush's, which is our normal brand.
Now, I think I grew up eating Campbell's (was there any other brand back then?!) and liked it. It's been *years* since I've eaten it. It was....bitter! Yes! bitter tasting. I had to doctor it up with bbq sauce to make it passable.
Has anyone else sensed just how horrible this product is? I wonder if they changed the recipe?
What brand of baked beans do you recommend?
