far too hard

very hard, almost crunchy. Taste is also not very pleasant. I will now definitely pay a bit more to get better quality or move to dried beans so that I can control how much they cook.

Bit soft

Rating: 2 star out of 5

defo a little hard

I found these beans nice but definitely harder than the organic ones (I even thought they might be raw and had to double check the heating instructions!) Still, they do the job so no disasters.. But I'll be going organic again next time.

Rating: 5 star out of 5

Always reliable

These go particularly well in casseroles. I hate pulses that are mushy, so these with just a little bite to them meet with my full approval.

not hard

I don't know why people say these are hard. They are as they should be. If you want to overcook your beans, feel free to do so, but a bean should have a slight crunch to it. These are very good and tasty.
