- I have no idea why baked beans are so popular int he UK, but the better brands have plenty of flavour. Also, no other country in the word eats anywhere near the amount the UK eats. I think part of it is they're cheap and quick to heat up, and are therefore a staple foodstuff of university students.
It's the starch-on-starch thing, also evident in "chip butties" (BTW, that's another thing we don't get over here: the apparently irresistible urge to give dishes names that sound either unappetizing or merely ridiculous; "spag bol" as an example of the former and the iconic "spotted dick" for the latter). Over here, we don't take one complex carb, wrap it in another, and then pour a third all over it (mmm, ramen noodles burrito, anyone?)
