Bitterwallet reader finds gemstone inside Branston baked beans

8 November 2010

Bitterwallet - gem stone found in branston baked beansAvid Bitterwallet reader Caroline Cockburn was in for a treat when she opened a tin of beans for lunch - a gemstone tumbled out the tin as well.

Caroline bought the Branston baked beans at the Duloch Park branch of Tesco in Dunfermline, Fife and was preparing a slap-up feast of Youngs fish, beans and chips. Mmmm.

But upon pouring the beans into a pan, she spotted something unusual amongst them - a square gemstone, black in colour:

Bitterwallet - gem found in baked bean

"My first reaction was obviously shock," Caroline told Bitterwallet. "It looks like part of a cufflink or a shirt button, about 1cm by 1cm square."

Caroline is the sister of one of the editors on our sister website Dealspwn, so we've no doubt that she's a trustworthy sauce (sic) of information. We're waiting from a comment from Premier Foods' press office, and we'll update you once we hear back from them.

    Nice to see that xenophobia is socially acceptable on Bitterwallet. And you wonder why the English are despised by everyone including your own breed.

    Plus everyone knows Marky Mark is an American anyway, whose penchant for consumer website comment sections whilst between filming is well documented. In contrast, the Funky Bunch do little else these days other than slate his films over on imdb.

    I recognise those tiles. I'm sure they were in the reader's wives section last month.
