Try Me Tuesday – Publix Black Beans

publix black beans

Welcome to this week’s Try Me Tuesday. Each week I will grab a new set of products and test them out. I’ll put the Publix brand up against a national brand product and report back.

I know many times I struggle with what brand to choose. Often a sale or a coupon/sale combination make that an easier decision…but what about those times when you need an item and there is not a sale? Do you grab the house brand or pay more and get the national brand? More importantly, is there really a difference in taste?

We go through a fair amount of black beans so I thought that I’d compare the Publix with the Bush’s Beans this week.

Bush’s Black Beans, 15 oz, (serving 1/2 cup) $0.99 (reg price)

Calories: 120
Total Fat: 0.5g
Cholesterol: 0mg
Sodium: 480mg
Potassium: 480mg
Total Carbohydrate: 23g
Dietary Fiber: 6g
Sugars: 1g
Protein: less than 7g

Ingredients: Prepared Black Beans, Water, Salt

Publix Black Beans, 12.5 oz, (serving 1/2 cup) $0.85

Calories: 110
Total Fat: 1g
Cholesterol: 0mg
Sodium: 370mg
Total Carbohydrate: 19g
Dietary Fiber: 7g
Sugars: 0g
Protein: less than 7g

Ingredients: Black Beans, Water, Salt

I honestly wasn’t sure that there would be a difference but was surprised to see that everyone picked one particular as a favorite!

RESULTS

  • Publix – 0
  • Bush’s – 4

We all chose the Bush’s Black Beans as the winner this week. Once I typed up the nutritional info I think I know why. The national brand has quite a bit more sodium that the Publix version. So if you are watching your sodium intake you might want to be aware of that little tidbit.

From a cost perspective, I actually got the Bush’s beans cheaper than the Publix ones as they are on sale! Sodium or not, I am declaring the Bush’t Beans the winner this week based on taste and price!

black-bean-burger-2Why not grab a couple of cans and whip up some of delicious Black Bean Burgers or my Black Bean Tortilla Pie Recipe. They are both quick, easy and oh so good.

I’d love to hear if any of you guys have put these two to the test. Did you have a favorite?
