We may be sour, but we know our sweets.

Boston Baked Beans

Author

A friend of mine asked me last week what my opinion of Boston Baked Beans candy was.  I had to admit…I’d never had them, despite knowing about them my whole life.  For those that don’t know what I’m talking about, here they are:

I can remember these from my earliest days as a lad in Los Angeles, working in a roller disco, broke, but making money by showing people my dong in the back room.

 

EDIT: I can remember these from my earliest days as a lad in Los Angeles, perusing the candy at my local supermarket.  These were ALWAYS there, and of course, not being an idiot, I never chose them.  I mean seriously, what kid is gonna opt for anything with the word “beans” in them for a sweet??!!

Ok fine, I get that everyone loves jelly beans.  You got me.  But on this box…the word beans really harkens…beans.  And it scared me.  So much so that I had to go start working in the adult film industry, first just as a fluf–

Anyhow, Boston Baked Beans taste like butter toffee peanuts, but they sure aint quite as good.  Something about the very hard outer shell is a bit weird for me, but still….they’re tasty.  You could do a LOT worse than these, so if you’re a peanut lover, buy a box, I’m betting you’ll be pleased.

 

Sort of like I was, when I was rolling my out of gas car down the streets of LA, al the way to Burt Reynold’s house.  Man, was I down in the dumps.  It was if my entire life, my entire career had-

  1. I love the baked beans! There is something about the delicious almost burnt coating that brings me back to my childhood. I have some friends who grew up in Mexico and they had something very similar called Lion Peanuts. Also a really good snack. Check them out!
