Promising review: “Canned beans from my local supermarket are always a disappointment so I stopped getting them. I don’t have time to cook beans myself but A Dozen Cousins beans are fresh and taste terrific. I am trying to eat healthier and these are a great way to do that. I’ve been trying to avoid packaged, processed foods but the natural ingredients make these different. I can feel good about eating them. The beans are whole and not mashed-up like in cans. All of the varieties are seasoned well and versatile. I’ve had them on their own, in salads and in wrap sandwiches. I’m really happy to have found these and hope they continue to add new flavors and products. Do yourself a favor and order some. You won’t regret it.” —Amazon Customer
