    Whenever I tipped the contents of a can of, say, baked beans or thick soup, the thicker part at the bottom of the tin was always more stubborn and had to be encouraged out with a spoon or fork. That was until I discovered (probably told by someone else) that opening the bottom of the can is the way to go.

    This worked great for a while, until the manufacturers helpfully started putting ring pulls on. Which is nice, but puts me back to my original problem. I've considered firing off an email to Heinz, suggesting that the solution wouldn't be difficult or costly - they just need to put the labels on upside down.

    I wouldn't go so far as to describe this as a taboo subject, but I haven't heard it discussed anywhere.

    I certainly don't feel that I need to get a life (as Mrs. P suggests), and in the meantime I'll be conducting an experiment (storing the tins upside down), and hopefully the results will support my theory
    Pining for the fjords? What kind of talk is that? And why did he fall flat on his back the minute I got him home?

    What is this "tinned soup" of which you speak?

    I always feel sad for those who are (or have been) less fortunate than me in life and love.

    Today's soup was beef broth, yesterday it was pea and ham Specially produced for folk like me who don't want to spend their leisure time dicking around with ingredients. I thought I'd put that in before you start on one And as they are for me dinner they go in a flask With half a baguette which barely fits into the plastic cup.

    I didn't hand-prepare the Muller rice either

    Surely it is the way the tins are stored which results in the contents settling at the bottom? So the idea of the storing the tins upside down has some merit.

    For my part, I use tinned baked beans so rarely (either as part of a British "heart attack on a plate" breakfast, or as a filling in a baked potato), that I'm quite happy to use a spoon to remove the contents.
