That's right baby - we're taking a trip to Bean Town!
Boston baked beans were invented by the Ferrara Pan Candy Company in the early 1930's. Peanuts covered in reddish brown candy coating, these tasty treats have only one thing in common with the real thing ..... the legume in the center!
Boston Baked beans are not overly sweet - the peanuts are sort of raw tasting and you can really eat quite a few before feeling slightly sick. I wonder what a REAL bean would taste like with candy coating???
