Can only get Heinz here so don't do it often as they are very sweet. The Belgian version of beans in tomato sauce come in jars and is not good. If I plan ahead, I make my own which are much better.
I once took a group of Belgian scientists to Dublin for an immersion trip. 15 of the 17 had sore heads from the night before doing an Irish pub crawl after a visit to Jameson's distillery with full tastings of Bourbon and 5 different kinds of whiskey. Those who took my advice and had the full Irish - bacon, sausage, black and white pudding, mushrooms, tomatoes, egg and beans with soda bread - were soon cured and did not need any more food before our evening flight home.
Those who stuck with continental croissants and toasted, sliced bread stayed queasy all day and by midday were hungry but unable to face food or practise their English properly.
